SEC compliance requirements are about to change—does your financial services organization have a plan for the future?
7 Cybersecurity and Compliance Foundations for RIA
MAJOR REGULATION CHANGES FOR RIAS ARE ON THE WAY
Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) are no strangers to compliance regulations. However, in the coming months and years, there are going to be major changes when it comes to cybersecurity and IT requirements. Although it isn’t clear just yet what the SEC will be including in the final rules, RIAs can’t wait until the night before it’s released to develop a strategy and there are already indicators of what will be needed.
Tackling new IT and cybersecurity requirements sooner rather than later will not only keep you ahead of the competition and prevent last-minute scrambling, but it will also ensure your organization lowers the risk of cyberattacks. Take action now to avoid correction letters, deficiency letters, and financial penalties.
Go Beyond Checking the Cybersecurity Boxes
When it comes to cybersecurity, compliance, IT, and your financial services firm, many CCOs are just checking the boxes and going through the motions. In that case, though, are you really protected? Our approach ensures that you’re meeting compliance requirements, working to mitigate risk, reducing the chances of a cyberattack, and keeping up with all regulatory changes. We know the technical side of compliance AND cybersecurity so you don’t have to.
Meet Compliance Requirements
We work with you to make sure your financial services organization is meeting IT and cybersecurity compliance requirements, even as new ones come online.
Test Your Policies
From data retention policies to incident response plans, we use exercises and tests to ensure your policies work in the event of an emergency. This is an especially important piece and something regulators will often look for and find missing at any firms.
By doing more than just checking the boxes, your organization can actively work to reduce risk, keep cyber attackers at bay, and prevent breaches.
Steer Clear of Correction Letters
With an IT financial services strategy for the future, not just for today, we can help you steer clear of correction letters, fines, and more.
