ALBANY, New York – BST & Co. CPAs, LLP, one of the Capital Region’s leading financial and management consulting firms, will host a webinar on how to best evaluate and maintain internal accounting controls in a remote environment on Wednesday, September 23 at 11:30 a.m.

During the webinar, BST & Co. Partners Kristen Berdar and Brendan Kennedy will discuss how effective internal accounting controls can reduce the risk of asset loss and ensure financial operations are conducted in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Berdar and Kennedy will also discuss how small businesses can overcome improper internal controls and implement new strategies.

“It’s critical that businesses of all shapes and sizes have strong internal accounting controls,” said Berdar. “With many businesses still working remotely, communication between departments is not as streamlined as it may be while actually in the office. For that reason, accuracy in accounting may suffer and could result in losses that some businesses cannot afford right now.”

Berdar has more than 25 years of experience in finance and accounting, including serving as a consultant for wholesale distribution, professional services and retail companies. She established BST & Co.’s outsourced accounting division Virtual Accounting Solutions, which is designed to make businesses more efficient by streamlining processes and identifying and implementing accounting best practices utilizing cloud-based technology.

Kennedy has more than 20 years of experience providing government clients with accounting and auditing services. He is a frequent speaker with the New York State Government Finance Officers Associates and the New York Conference of Mayors, where he shares governmental accounting expertise.

Attendance to the webinar is free. Individuals interested in participating can register at
