Cybersecurity threats facing the hedge fund and financial industry are intensifying as is the focus of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to ensure hedge funds are prepared and have detailed information security policies in place. In fact, the SEC's Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations (OCIE) is conducting examinations of registered entities regarding cybersecurity matters. As part of the exam, the SEC will be reviewing hedge funds' written information security plans and policies.
Eze Castle Integration's experienced hedge fund security consultants are working with firms to create Written Information Security Policies (WISP) that address the administrative and technical safeguards a hedge fund needs to withstand a cybersecurity incident and demonstrate preparedness.
Since 2009, when the Massachusetts data privacy law went into effect, our team has worked with clients to create information security policies and incident response plans.
