WATCH: IT Security Dos & Don'ts
We spend a lot of time educating our clients about security best practices and encouraging them to implement comprehensive security policies and procedures to mitigate risk and protect both the firm and its employees. And for good reason. A report released earlier in 2014 stated data breaches across just New York state alone more than tripled from 2006 to 2013 and cost businesses more than $1.37 billion in 2013.
While companywide policies should reflect long-range expectations and corporate best practices, they should also include tactical recommendations that employees can follow to ensure they are complying with the company’s overall risk strategy. In addition to providing employees with security best practices they should follow, don’t forget to also include a list of actions they should not. Our video highlights just a few pieces of advice we regularly offer our investment firm clients.
