Develop a Robust Cybersecurity Program
Regulators have elevated expectations of hedge funds, private equity managers, and all other registered investment advisors, specifically regarding cybersecurity practices. U.S. federal agencies, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), completed 10% more examinations in 2018 than they had in 2017, with cybersecurity remaining a top examination priority. As the financial industry becomes more connected with technology, Internet of Things (IoT), and smart electronics, firms must adopt robust cybersecurity programs.
Firms must adopt robust cybersecurity programs. Drawbridge Partners' team of legal and compliance professionals, coupled with our cybersecurity experts, will help your firm develop, enhance or transform its program.
We Will Deliver
A cybersecurity program that meets regulatory requirements and guidelines as well as investor demand
Improve an existing program with a policy gap analysis (PGA)
If your firm already has policies in place, our team will conduct a detailed analysis of your firm’s documentation related to cybersecurity, regulatory compliance, and information technology policies and procedures.
This review allows Drawbridge Partners to provide your firm with a deliverable that highlights the strong measures your firm has in place, important procedures in place already that your cyber policies may be excluding, and the practices you may be overlooking.
The goal of this exercise is to improve the effectiveness of your current program.
Build a program from the ground up:
A cybersecurity program detailing the cyber-practices and procedures that your firm adheres to is the foundation of a secure environment.
Drawbridge Partners understands that no two firms are the same. Therefore, our team will examine your firm’s business and information security procedures to better understand your firm’s cybersecurity needs. Among other things, we will speak with key personnel at your firm, review any compliance documentation your firm has on file, and review your vendor documentation in order to create a program specifically tailored to your firm’s needs. The Drawbridge Partners' team will develop a customized program for you, regardless of your current program's maturity level.
As a part of our regulatory program, we will craft policies tailored for your firms needs. Policy creation includes, but may not be limited to, Written Information Security Policy (WISP), Incident Response Plan (IRP), business continuity plan (BCP), privacy policies and more.
We will develop a cybersecurity program that your firm will confidently present to regulators and investors.
