Combining solutions around technology, governance and education, Align CybersecurityTM is the only end-to-end solution in the world that creates a triple threat to hackers.

The challenge of managing advancing risks and heightened regulatory requirements surrounding increasingly complex and extended networks affects both asset managers and the larger financial services industry.

Align’s multidisciplinary team of experts will design policies, procedures and sophisticated controls satisfying legal, compliance and fiduciary requirements. Creating a culture of security, Align offers customizable, on-demand training to make employees the greatest line of defense. Managed by Align’s team of security analysts, the Align Client Portal centralizes all Cybersecurity Risk Management controls in one dashboard including policies, third party communications and key security metrics.
