Cybersecurity education and awareness training is a core component of any model Cybersecurity Program and generally speaking, the underlying content and educational programs pertaining to the fundamental tenants of security awareness are widely available and ubiquitous. However, registered investment advisers face specific cybersecurity risks, threat actors and attack vectors and also interact with their data sets in uniquely specific ways. The Align Cybersecurity Education solution is designed with investment advisers and the broader financial services firms in mind, incorporating both general and industry-specific training modules and phishing campaigns. Cyber risk is fluid and ever-evolving; so too should the curricula for investment managers.
If your employees don't understand cybersecurity best practices, your business's data could be at serious risk. Having a well-educated employee base is your first defense against cyber attacks, so make sure they have a thorough understanding.
