Service Spotlight: Regulatory Readiness

Financial regulators often hold high standards to the cybersecurity practices of hedge funds and registered investment advisors.

In order for firms to meet regulatory requirements, effective and well-maintained cybersecurity programs are necessary.

Often, the goal is not only to shore up cybersecurity within your firm, but to bring your firm into the fold of countless others with strong regulations. It has become the goal of the financial industry to not only protect a firm’s interests, but to ensure that all firms have a similar level of protections from potential breaches and other cyber attacks.

A part of meeting cybersecurity requirements is also program maintenance. While these all-encompassing regulatory measures may seem intimidating, the experts at Drawbridge and their top of the line software allows for smooth management of your firm’s cybersecurity programs.
