The WealthStack Podcast: Latest SEC Cybersecurity Rules | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

SEC compliance is top of mind for RIAs across the country, and their cybersecurity needs are specific. RIAs have a fiduciary responsibility to protect their clients’ data and assets, which can be vulnerable to cyber attacks. A data breach could result in fines, penalties, and reputational damage. With the SEC proposing new rules to address cybersecurity risks, RIAs need to be prepared to future-proof their practice.

In this episode, Shannon Rosic, director of WealthStack Content and Solutions, speaks with Michael Cocanower, Founder and CEO of AdviserCyber, about what pending regulations mean for RIAs.

Shannon and Michael also discuss:

  • What role the advisor plays when mitigating risks
  • Why the SEC believes firms are underinvesting in cyber solutions
  • What the AI arms races means in the context of regulation
  • How RIAs can effectively respond to and recover from a cybersecurity incident
