Intellectual property security has traditionally been the core concern for alternative investment businesses. However; today hackers have a much better understanding of the alternative investment industry, and its applications, technologies and working practices. “Blunt instrument” cyber security attacks have been replaced to a degree by more subtle methods, such as exploitation of security credentials gained by deception. This means what’s going on with your trusted employees accounts “inside the fence” is just as important as patrolling the perimeter. Business training should be implemented for all staff to dispel the misconception that "the IT department has it all covered!"
British Security Minister, Ben Wallace, stated that ‘cyber fraud is growing and the barriers to entry for this are lowering on an almost daily basis.’ It is estimated that cyber crimes are costing the UK over £190bn a year.
With attacks ever present, safeguarding your business from these and other potential disruptions is paramount. We’ve armed ourselves with the knowledge and training needed to implement the latest advances in cyber-crime mitigation:
Our clients experience continuous pressure from stakeholders to ensure that their systems include high performance defence against advanced threats. The next-generation Fortinet firewalls we use deliver the best threat protection and performance in the industry with reduced complexity.
Tribeca is well-practiced in the implementation of industry leading cyber security tools to aid in the prevention of outbreaks. In addition, Tribeca has dealt with the aftermath of such outbreaks, and has successfully resolved systems to a secure and stable state, updating preventative measures and creating awareness among users.
There has been a recent spike in viruses and cyber security breaches, such as HeartBleed, CryptoLocker and ShellShock, now is the time to review your cyber security. The first instance of CryptoLocker alone cost the industry over $3million in ransoms, with over 250,000 PCs affected. Since CryptoLocker’s servers were taken down in late 2013, hundreds of variants of the ransomware have been leaked. It is estimated that now these viruses have cost users in excess of $250million and these figures are still climbing rapidly.
We recommend that every organisation has a Cyber Security Management Programme in place to help reduce the overall cost of security breaches. A management programme will provide the best protection and steps for effective resolution and restitution. We believe that it is just as important to plan for breaches and minimise the impact as it is to prevent them.
