I spent my career with the belief that training employees would make my life easier. It has worked for me every step of the way. Whether it is the regulatory code of ethics or cybersecurity, employees need to know and understand their obligations.
Giving them a policy and procedure that is several pages and asking them to read, retain and apply the information provided is an irrational idea. There will be resistance, some who don’t understand and those who will look at you like you are crazy. That’s why I always provide training and educational materials.
It is the same reason why my weekly #cybersecurity tip includes videos or stories to help you understand cybersecurity better. If you know it, you will apply it. If you understand it, you will share it.
I am happy to say that through CybSecWatch, I am creating a SaaS platform that will give RIAs the control they need to reinforce their regulatory obligations and cybersecurity awareness. If you do not know anything about cybersecurity, don’t worry, our experts are creating a platform that will allow you to automate and personalize content to send to your employees.
We will invite a few people to test out the platform shortly. If you would like to be part of a greater testing pool, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The beta test is for registered investment advisors at this time.
