Cybersecurity Awareness Month: Spotlight on Training

Data breaches that result in thousands of American’s compromised information. Complex financial schemes committed by sophisticated cyber criminals against businesses and public investors.  Errant programming mistakes that lead to network-wide security threats.

These are just a few examples of incidents over the years that have resulted in tremendous harm to investors, and a major source behind why FINRA and the SEC continue to focus on the importance of implementing proper cybsersecurity provisions.
