In an era dominated by digital advancements, the protection of sensitive financial information is paramount. Our information is increasingly vulnerable, and we are in the precarious spot of having our business and personal data exposed—whether we like it or not. However, attempts to regulate activities on the internet through territorial jurisdiction will be problematic because cyberspace and e-commerce are inherently international. What are the implications of this for industry and commerce and what does this mean for the accounting profession?
