FCA Cyber Security Governance Programme

The FCA, PRA, and Bank of England agree that firms must develop an internal security culture and focus on cyber resilience. That is where we come into the picture.

Your actionable, practical 360° solution.

Specifically aligned with the FCA’s Cyber Essentials certification and the NCSC’s 10 steps to cyber security, our 24-month programme is a way for our hedge fund, private equity, and alternative asset clients in the UK to adopt a security-first culture to protect the assets, and reputations, of their firms.

Security Risk Assessment

Assess your risk of a cyber security breach through an in-depth evaluation of your information security maturity.

Penetration Testing

Through on-site and remote testing, our experienced team will examine your security position from a hacker’s perspective.

Policy Review Development

We create new or review current security policies to stay up to date on requirements from the SEC, FCA, and PRA.

Incident Response Testing

Assess your incident response strategy through yearly tabletop trainings with key executives, follow-up conversations, and whiteboarding collaborations.

Social Engineering Testing

Receive an office security analysis based on an assessment of your firm’s reaction to internal threats such as pretexting, phishing, and USB drive baiting.

Security Awareness Training

Prepare and train your team on how to prevent and react to cyber security threats at our annual conference.

Security Architecture Review

After conducting an analysis of your existing security programme, we provide a report with a tailored plan of action for improvement.

Cyber Essentials Preparation

NCSC’s Cyber Essentials certification is the backbone of our programme. Prepare your firm to achieve the certification to prove your commitment to cyber security.

Proactive Monitoring

Our AI-driven technology monitors your domain names and public DNS services, which are increasingly targeted by fraudsters, and alert your firm to unusual activity.

Real-time insights & transparency.

Track the progress of your 24-month program anywhere, anytime via the Agio Governance Portal.
