Possible Security Measures to put into place before allowing screen sharing

Hi. I have someone who is having their non profit small company receive a remote financial audit. They are prepared for it but the financial auditors have asked to also do part of it remotely and would like to use screen sharing. They can say no, however, they feel if they say no, lol, then they will think they have something to hide, which they do not.

However, they don't like the idea of just allowing access without putting some security measure into place. I am a database person. I do not know how to advise him. I would welcome any advice. I was considering having him use encryption on files that do not have to be accessed, but that might not look good. And I am not sure if there is a way of tracking what they will be doing because I don't know the software they will be using.

All my best,
Kathy

I don't see the issue. If it's a required audit for a non profit by a regulation agency they should have absolutely nothing to hide. If they do then they should be caught. That's what an audits for.

I agree, but they were advised differently. I don't know why? And yes, they are a company with integrity but they are not high tech and are uncomfortable just having someone have access via screen sharing.
