Senior Fellow Christopher Hetner, Cybersecurity Lead, Technology Controls Program, OCIE, SEC

The SEC’s Division of Investment Management demonstrated an escalating focus on cybersecurity issues by releasing a Cybersecurity Guidance Publication.

Consequently, Fund Managers and Investment Advisers will experience increasing scrutiny by Examination Staff regarding cybersecurity policies, proceedures, processes and practices.

Therefore, Fund Managers and Investment Advisers must conduct formal and documented cybersecurity resiliency evaluations. The forgoing should result in Fund Managers and Investment Advisers retaining Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) to lead their cybersecurity efforts.

While your firm conducts a search for a CISO (or Virtual CISO), at a minimum, consider implementing a comprehensive, practical and authoritative Cybersecurity Training Program – used by CISOs for their firms.

The RCA’s myUniversity Course on Cybersecurity for Asset Managers (Volume 1 and Volume 2) will assist you to create a cybersecurity program tailored to your firm.
