Risk mitigation requires swift containment, engaging technology, process, and good governance and behavior.
Boston, February 25, 2016 – External information-security threats and hits get much press, but the internal hits are just as critical to prevent. The response must be a multipronged effort combining the corporate mission, risk appetite, technology framework, and collaboration both internally and with trusted external sources.

This report presents asset management firms’ cybersecurity reality, covering leadership, technology and staffing resources, and the insider threat. It is based on a Q4 2015 Aite Group online survey of buy-side executives at asset management firms distributed by Institutional Investor Memberships to its U.S. and European institutes.
