Our security philosophy is rooted in a day-in, day-out commitment that takes relentless diligence, expertise, adherence to process, and best-in-breed technology. We protect hedge funds 24x7x365 from the inside, out.
It’s hard to plan a strong offense when you’re always playing defense. There is pressure from every angle – from your C-suite to regulatory bodies. Making sure you have the right IT expertise and experience is critical to maintaining a robust cybersecurity posture.
The global cybersecurity workforce will have 1.5 million+ unfilled positions by 2020. To say there is a shortage of talent is an understatement.
You know new cybersecurity threats are released every day, but how do you accurately budget against the moving target that is risk?
Your people are your own worst enemy. The well-intentioned employee, left untrained, can do just as much damage as their disgruntled coworker.

Transcription: So back in January, a woman started as an assistant controller. She told all of her friends on LinkedIn that she got a new job, like we all do, right? Everyone hit congrats, all that good stuff. Two weeks later she gets an email, from the “CEO” and I put it in quotes because it was fake. It was a bad fake too. It was like Jane, CEO, and then the actual email address was XYZ@verizon.net.
It was a terrible fake, right? She didn’t notice it. All she saw was the name of the CEO. She was new; the bad actor knew that because she had just updated. She hadn’t worked with the CEO before.
The email says I’m running a report; I need all of our W-2’s. She runs home and logs on, grabs all of the 338 W-2’s, puts them together, sends them to the bad actor, and apologizes for taking so long. The bad actor so kindly says, “It’s okay. Thanks a lot. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.” The new employee thought, “Wow, I just did a great job. I helped the CEO and she said thanks a lot.” Right? She was really excited.
Now what does it cost the company? So we’re at $5 million and counting that they’ve spent – mainly on legal fees, accounting fees, credit monitoring fees, all of this.
You WILL be socially engineered off data on LinkedIn; and not like once a year, but once a day.
We have a longtime association with the security team at Agio and really value the partnership we have with them in securing our business and meeting compliance needs.
Agio offers a militant approach to cybersecurity. As long as hackers are out there trying to breach your system and exploit your business’ data, we’ll be on guard testing and triaging. And even though you can’t put a price tag on peace of mind, it’s worth noting that our 24x7x365 services come at a fraction of the cost to hire 9 – 5 help.
Working with Agio means you’ll always have the best technology without the cost and hassle of researching and installation.
We apply a bottom-up risk-based approach when designing our solutions so you get cybersecurity best practices built into our infrastructure services.
We invest in platforms that allow you to see what we see. It’s nice to know you can check up on your cybersecurity provider if and when you feel the need.
