Cybersecurity Information Center:
A comprehensive compilation of all things Security for Hedge Funds and Investment Firms
When it comes to protecting your investment firm from serious cybersecurity threats, it's safe to say that less is definitely not more. In fact, it takes a pretty heavy arsenal of security measures to combat the ever-growing threats targeting your firm from both the inside and the outside.
Our Layered Approach to Cybersecurity eBook breaks down three primary security tiers (basic, standard and advanced) and highlights various cyber protections to implement across your organization relative to access control, perimeter security, policy development, and more.
And for a handy, one-pager, click here to get your copy of our Cybersecurity Cheatsheet, which breaks down each layer's components in an easy-to-understand format.
The security risks we face are ever-changing, and it’s a full-time job trying to keep pace. Hack attacks can spread quickly (think: WannaCry) and disrupt systems, networks and operations to the point of disaster.
And social engineering scams – like sophisticated, well-timed phishing emails – are targeting users more frequently, meaning your guards need to be up, technology and otherwise.
These 10 IT security gaps highlight areas where hedge funds and private equity firms can take steps to avoid risk in the future.
These gaps are preventable, and when the next phishing email hits your inbox or ransomware attack strikes your network, you can rest easier knowing you've plugged these common security holes.
