Building Cyber Resilience into Portfolio Firms with Security Awareness Training

Presented by

Mark Sangster, Alex Jinivizian

About this talk

Attackers understand the private equity and portfolio company security dynamic well. While these firms are wealthy, many portfolio companies are smaller organizations with limited security resources and lean security resources. The majority of cyberattacks begin with a simple phishing email and end with crippling ransomware outages, stolen data and irrevocably damaged business reputations. Although most companies provide some form of annual training, these compliance driven sessions focus on overly simplistic lures taken from public events that fail to represent the real danger of targeted criminal campaigns. Adding to the challenge, CIOs at private equity firms are hampered by a lack of visibility into all their portfolio firms. Phishing and security awareness training programs across their portfolio firms are almost always inconsistent.
