Cybersecurity threats are increasingly targeting employees at private equity firms in an effort to compromise sensitive data, disrupt operations, and/or trick staff into performing fraudulent transactions that can result in significant financial loss. As a result, it’s critical that employees understand their role in protecting sensitive data and how threat actors perpetrate attacks. In this webcast for new PE associates, ACA Aponix’s Chad Neale and Raj Bakhru will discuss the cyber threats PE associates should be aware of, how to avoid/detect breaches, and actions they should take if they are targeted.
Discussion topics will include:
- Cybersecurity threats targeting PE firms and how to avoid becoming a victim
- Differences between cybersecurity and privacy incidents
- Proper response measures to targeted attacks from cyber threat actors
- Recent breach case studies at PE firms and techniques to avoid/detect similar breaches
