Cybersecurity is absolutely a multi-factorial challenge that requires an multidisciplinary approach. Achieving cybersecurity compliance requires more than a single hire, a black box or a suite of policies and procedures. Cybersecurity is dynamic and each firm has its own cybersecurity risk profile ‘fingerprint’. As a result, for those firms that do not have the internal resources to build out the people, technologies governance and other controls required by the prevailing cybersecurity standards and regulations, co-sourcing the CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) function is many times an optimal choice. Our team of subject matter experts can collectively address all the cybersecurity issues, whether technological, operational, legal or either compliance or governance in nature and will generate, maintain and catalogue all of the required reports, assessments, tests, audits, inquiries, communications and other documentation, allowing our client to demonstrate both a historical and continued engagement on cybersecurity compliance.
“At Cole-Frieman & Mallon LLP, we are proud of our reputation for innovation and collaboration. Our work is cutting edge, and our clients are discerning and expect high-quality work from our legal professionals. As our client base (like the rest of the world) was forced to make the recent and abrupt shift to a decentralized work environment, the managed IT services provided by Align allowed us to adapt seamlessly to this new attorney-client construct. Align’s bespoke approach to Cybersecurity was instrumental in making this pivot securely and confidently. Specifically, the Align team assisted us in maintaining our delivery of top-tier legal services to our clients flawlessly and securely with zero technology friction points.”
We continue to evolve our offerings to support the ever-expanding and changing business requirements for fund managers who are scaling their business and capital levels. Align has been a critical partner for us in terms of technology and cybersecurity—helping to improve our platform while remaining secure and compliant. In fact even though Agile Fund Solutions was acquired and merged into E78 Partners, a larger firm, Align (who we have partnered with since 2018) was selected as the MSP for our overall firm, as they have been at the forefront of technology innovation for us and our clients for so many years!
"Align has been the ideal solutions partner for us at Holburn—they handle those projects we just don’t have the resources to handle on our own. We recently moved our office including our internal data center and Align was critical to the success of that move. They’ve helped us reduce our overall hardware footprint with their rock solid IaaS product and their support has been amazing. We actually don’t see them as a partner but as a natural extension of our IT team, we actually refer to a member of their network practice as “Our” network engineer."
“Align is our trusted provider for all our Managed Services and cybersecurity needs. They provide us best-in-class IT services that not only help drive productivity and growth, but ensure we meet both current and evolving compliance and security requirements with ease. As consultants to financial advisors, trust and reliability are indispensable to our operations, which is why we never hesitate to refer Align to our very own client base. Align isn’t just our partner, they are an extension of our team. We look forward to entrusting them with our IT infrastructure for years to come.”
