An Accounting information system is a computer-based system that has a collection to store and process financial and accounting data that is used internally for reporting to investors, tax authorities, and creditors. This system’s set up with a database structure with query language for manipulation of tables and data. This system should be set up with a highly secure platform to prevent an viruses or hackers from collecting the information.

Some of the threats that occur to the accounting information system are:

1) A hacker acting like an authorized user and using the telecommunication lines, therefore at the data collection level there should be controls set in place to make sure that the data is valid and free from material errors.

2) The creation of illegal programs or accessing/deleting files. This can happen at the data processing phase.

3) Corrupting or altering a program to produce incorrect information.

4) Not backing up files, therefore has the potential to lose a file if one is deleted.

5) Theft of misdirection can also happen during the reporting phase.
