Customized Cybersecurity Programs

 

STATE OF READINESS / CYBERSECURITY PREPAREDNESS

A sound Cybersecurity Program goes beyond the technology and digital barriers necessary to defend and detect attacks–it addresses fiduciary, regulatory, HR, legal and other risks by implementing structure, processes and accountability. The Align Cybersecurity™ team works with each client to provide a bespoke Cybersecurity Program that includes policies and procedures, reporting controls and training initiatives that together, create a culture of cybersecurity preparedness that works symbiotically with the underlying technology solutions.

  • Assess current cybersecurity posture, including policies, incidents and history.
  • Design and develop a fully customized Cybersecurity Program, including policies, best practices, response plans, Cybersecurity Incident Log, Vendor Attestations and other regulatory materials, as well as Investor Due Diligence Questionnaire response materials.
  • Provide counsel and advice regarding Cybersecurity Program implementation and employee integration.
  • Manage third-party vendors and extended network risks.
  • Client-dedicated portal designed to centralize and manage cybersecurity policies, compliance obligations, employee training, all with automated reporting.
  • Conduct mock SEC cybersecurity sweep exams. Following an Align Cybersecurity™ mock exam, your firm will know what to expect and will be able to address any deficiencies.
