Regulatory scrutiny continues to escalate on cybersecurity for alternative investment and asset management firms – the latest target Business Continuity and Transition Planning.

Currently, firms silo cybersecurity, business continuity and transition planning. Such thinking leaves gaps. Firms must consider the larger, integrated picture and implement a comprehensive and cohesive plan.

Regulatory agency expectations for cybersecurity and business continuity include the following:
• Proposed rule requiring investment advisers to adopt business continuity and transition Plans
• OCIE cybersecurity sweep examinations, targeting more than 50 investment advisers, fund managers and broker-dealers
• OCIE Cybersecurity Examination Sweep Summary
• Recruiting of top-level information security executives and experienced alternative investment operations executives
• Cybersecurity Risk Alerts issues to firms and investors
• Investment Management’s Cybersecurity Guidance Update

In response, many alternative investment and asset management firms have tasked CCOs to address another evolving set of regulatory expectations.

This Course will equip compliance, legal and operations executives to develop a practical, effective, cost-efficient and integrated Cybersecurity, Business Continuity and Transition plan tailored to their firm.
