This webinar will cover recently issued improvements to accounting and financial reporting standards related to leases and fiduciary activities. The session will not only cover the requirements of these standards, but also will provide insights into potential implementation issues. Statement No, 87, Leases, was approved by GASB in June 2017 and is effective for reporting periods beginning after Dec. 15, 2019. Statement No. 84, Fiduciary Activities, was approved by GASB in January 2017 and is effective for reporting periods beginning after Dec. 15, 2018. These standards will have a profound effect on state and local governments. Due to the significance and complexity of leases and fiduciary activities, these standards cannot be implemented at the last minute. They will need careful planning, and the time to plan is now.

The topics covered include:
• Identifying leases
•Determining a lease term
•Recognizing short-term leases and transfers of ownership
•Recognizing, measuring, and disclosing leases from both a lessee and lessor perspective
•Identifying fiduciary activities
•Reporting fiduciary activities
•Reporting fiduciary component units

Speakers:
•Wesley Galloway, Senior Project Manager, GASB
•Scott Reeser, CPA, Supervising Project Manager, GASB
•David Vaudt, Chairman, GASB

Learning objectives: This webinar will update you on the nature and scope of changes to accounting and financial reporting for leases and fiduciary activities based on Statements recently issued by the GASB and how governments can prepare for those changes.

For non-information technology personnel, cybersecurity can be a labyrinth of strange concepts, acronyms and techno-babble that is at best confusing and at worst terrifying. All of us rely on technical staff to secure our systems and data, and unless you are a trained IT professional, the details of cybersecurity will likely remain something of a mystery. However, a little familiarity with the fundamentals will go a long way. This session will provide a basic understanding of cybersecurity concepts and will empower the personnel who own the data and depend on the systems to better collaborate with their IT staff to ensure the integrity, availability and confidentially of financial data.


Speaker:
•Caleb Jones, Asst. VP, Security Risk Program Manager, Alion Science & Technology

Learning objectives: Participants will learn: •The principles of the confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA) triad ?We will review case studies highlighting actual incidents and relate them to the CIA triad

•The principles of risk-based security assessment including the elements of criticality, threat and vulnerability ?We will review examples in order to clarify why this is important to the lay-person and will explain your role in this process

•What data owners and system users can do to help their IT staff better secure their systems ?We will review: 1) what questions you should be asking your IT staff, 2) what information you should be providing them and 3) how your business unit can work with the IT staff to affect a positive change in your cyber-preparedness
