IT Support for Financial Planning and Wealth Management Firms

Providing IT Support, Microsoft 365 and Cyber Security services to Financial Planning and Wealth Management Firms

We understand the unique nature of your industry. We’ve provided IT Support, Microsoft 365 and Cybersecurity services to the financial services sector for a number of years including financial planning and wealth management firms.

The nature of your business means that you’ll retain very sensitive client data. Therefore, the onus falls on you not to just protect your own critical data, but the financial and personal records of your customers, too.

It’s a big responsibility. Get it wrong, and the damage it could do to your reputation doesn’t bear thinking about.

Just how secure is your critical data?

Cyber crime is one of the biggest threats we face these days, but if you’re in the financial services sector, it’s safe to say the threat level rises somewhat.. Unfortunately, that’s to be expected; you deal with valuable data, and that’s exactly what cyber criminals want to get their hands on. The good news is that the FCA is well aware of this. It’s why they publish an annual ‘industry insights’ document to help you sure up your defences.. 

Top-down approach

Cyber risk should be on your board meeting agenda. Executives need to be educated via regular workshops and the best management information should be readily available

Simplicity

Use plain language when it comes to cybersecurity. Avoid the jargon! And, while you’re at it, recruit ‘champions’ (existing members of staff) who understand the inherent risks

Bigger picture

Who is likely to target your business? Do you understand how the controls you’re implementing mitigate risk? This is aided by some existing frameworks such as Cyber Essentials
