Introducing the Security Management Partner: A Specialist for Financial Services Security

General practitioners can provide a basic level of care for the human body, but specialists are normally called in to diagnose and treat more complex issues based on their advanced training, unique talent, and expertise. Managed security services providers frequently operate like general practitioners and provide a range of generic cyber services to multiple industries. But this one-size-fits-all approach to cybersecurity often misdiagnoses issues and risks specific to the financial services industry. Enter the security management partner, a new approach to cybersecurity based on deep expertise in the types of threats facing financial services organizations. The security management partner is ideally suited to financial services organizations that may not have sufficient cyber expertise on staff, but it can also be enticing for firms that want to augment existing cyber capabilities.

Join Aite Group senior analyst Joseph Krull, SEI IT Services unit lead Steve Bomberger, and SEI head of solutions Justin Estadt for a live webinar as they discuss the concept of the security management partner and how SEI’s cyber defense can bring a new level of cybersecurity expertise to your organization.

Key takeaways will include:

  • How a generalized approach to cybersecurity can miss critical threats specific to financial services organizations
  • How specialized security partners benefit organizations that don’t have sufficient cyber staff
  • How specific organizations have benefited from a security management partner
