Managed Cybersecurity For Wealth Managers And Their Clients

CYBER CROOKS CALL THEM CANDY STORES - HIGH NET WORTH FAMILIES AND THEIR ADVISORS RICH IN MORE THAN JUST MONEY: BUSINESS DATA, PERSONAL SECRETS, CONNECTIONS, BUSINESS NETWORKS, INSIDER KNOWLEDGE, CLIENT DATA AND ACCOUNTS, TRADE SECRETS - ANYTHING THAT CAN BE LEVERAGED FOR VALUE.

 
FamilyMost experts agree, the high net worth community is a hot target for a variety of professional attackers – from lone wolf hackers, to criminal data brokers, to organized crime.
 
Protecting this target is much different than protecting the typical consumer. Most consumers are rarely the target of well-planned and persistent attacks using customized tools designed to bypass commercial security products.
 
And the impact of a successful attack on a high net worth target can be devastating – especially if the attack comes through a trusted advisor who simply wasn’t careful enough.
 

Privide is the first firm to offer a unique hybrid security solution, protecting wealth managers, financial advisors, and family offices; and protecting their high net worth clients.

Meet Some of the Team

Neal O'Farrell is one of the first generation of security entrepreneurs, fighting the first generation of hackers before most of today's security firms were even born. He's an award-winning expert who has advised governments, intelligence agencies, Fortune 500 companies and wealth management companies, and is a prolific author and speaker. Meet him.

Barak Engel got his first taste of security in the 1990s as part of the team that helped track down notorious hacker The Analyser. Since then he's worked with NASA, Barnes and Noble, Cost Plus World Market, LiveNation/Ticketmaster, bebe Stores and many others. As head of Information Security for Webex (now Cisco), Barak helped navigate the global communications giant through growing security and privacy challenges during some of its most hectic years. A sought-after writer and speaker, Barak recently authored “Why CISOs fail - The Missing Link in Security Management and How to Fix It,” published by Auerbach Publications.

Dave Price has more than 15 years experience in security and his specialties include website security, network scanning, and compliance. Dave is a long-time advisor to the Identity Theft Council, the award winning non-profit behind Operation Stop IT – Stop Identity Theft. More than a decade ago Dave helped create the entire employee security training program for the Center for Information Security Awareness, a national security training initiative in partnership with FBI/Infragard. That program has since been used by thousands of organizations.

Anne Madrid is a nationally recognized identity theft and fraud expert, a 20-year veteran of law enforcement, and one of the first cops in the country to specialize in identity theft. For nearly a decade she investigated and helped prosecute some of the most complex and expensive fraud cases, including many that involved organized crime, cartels, and motorcycle gangs. She has participated in both FBI and Secret Service task forces that took down major identity theft and fraud rings and was one of the first experts to sound the alarm about the Accurint (Lexis Nexis) data breach more than a decade ago, one of the very first high profile data breaches. 

It's All About Relationships

Whether you’re a financial advisor, wealth manager, or family office, you understand the critical importance of a trusting personal relationship. So do we. We’re a boutique security firm, with a singular focus, and not a global security provider serving every vertical imaginable. We believe in the importance of personal relationships, with you and with your clients. You’ll never deal with account or territory mangers and will always have access to the founding team.

Giving Back Matters To Us Too

Our CEO Neal O'Farrell has founded three non-profit initiatives dedicated to improving safety, security and privacy, including the award-winning Identity Theft Council; Schooled In Security, that introduces high school students to education and careers in cybersecurity; and Operation Stop IT, a national partnership with the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the American Bankers Association, AARP, Transunion and many others to fight identity theft at a community level.
