NATIONAL REGULATORY SERVICES AND FORTRESS INFORMATIONS SECURITY JOIN FORCES TO HELP BUSINESSES TACKLE CYBERSECURITY COMPLIANCE
The collaboration between NRS and Fortress will offer clients the various components needed to implement a full cybersecurity program
LAKEVILLE, CT / ORLANDO, FL – March 6, 2018 National Regulatory Services (NRS), the leader in compliance solutions and services for financial services firms, and Fortress Information Security, a rapidly growing information security and risk mitigation company, have announced a partnership to offer a new cybersecurity consulting service. The combined proposition aims to ensure that organizations of all sizes are both protected from increasingly sophisticated cyber threats and also compliant with the rapidly evolving landscape of cybersecurity financial rules, regulations and guidelines.
The collaboration between NRS and Fortress will offer clients the various components needed to implement a full cybersecurity program – from the development of in-depth cybersecurity policies, to the ability to test for vulnerabilities and manage risk with third party vendors. The service, which will help investment advisors and broker-dealers deploy strategies to secure their data and operate in compliance, will be fully customizable to fit different business needs, risk profiles and budgets.
John Gebauer, President of NRS, said: “The increasingly sophisticated cyber threats facing organizations today have led to new and expanding regulations and compliance obligations, designed to protect consumers from highly damaging breaches and hacks. As the cybersecurity landscape evolves, it is essential for organizations to rapidly upskill and upgrade their compliance programs to ensure they are always operating in compliance with current legislation, and equipped to defend against emerging threats. We know this can be a significant challenge, which is why we have joined forces with Fortress Information Security to deliver a new tailored consulting service which answers the unique needs of broker-dealers and investment advisers.”
“Securing our clients’ technology environment and implementing the right policies and procedures is key to ensuring on-going compliance” said Alex Santos, CEO of Fortress. “Our joint offering with NRS enables our clients to obtain holistic compliance and information security expertise under one umbrella, and ultimately, helps them to secure the critical information that is at the core of a safe and secure financial system infrastructure.”
