Investor Cyber Due Diligence

More frequently savvy investors, family offices, and institutional allocators will send include Cyber Due Diligence requests for information regarding a manager’s cybersecurity program. In these instances, BW Cyber works on both sides of the equation (either to assist with the investor’ Due Diligence process or to assist managers’ responses to Investor Cyber Due Diligence inquiries. In either role, we develop Cybersecurity Due Diligence processes and/or Cyber Due Diligence responses based on a combination of existing program activities and regulatory requirements.

For managers, without disclosing any critical information, the response will demonstrate to potential investors how your organization’s cybersecurity plan and related cyber implementation activities have been implemented in the form of a continuous cybersecurity improvement program.

For the investors, we possess the detailed understanding to ask the right questions to identify any key risks (think breach, data protection, legal risk or wire fraud) as well as related regulatory compliance shortfalls that might affect an investment decision.

Cybersecurity Insurance Evaluation & Selection

While BW Cyber is not an insurer, we do understand the intricacies of cybersecurity insurance and bring a network of strong cyber insurance partnerships to our customers.

IT MSP RFP & Vendor Selection

Often asset management firms have a rolodex collection of IT support. In addition to the added management oversight it required for support requests and invoicing, when tallied together the costs are generally much higher than using a single vendor to manage the entire IT ecosystem. Further, if an organization is considering moving to a new IT Managed Service Provider (MSP), sole sourcing can have drawbacks such as no competitive pricing or required security controls baked into their proposal.

BW Cyber can shepherd the IT MSP selection process. Using a multi-phased approach, our consultants can help draft an initial Request for Proposal (RFP), collect and analyze proposals, and arm your organization with the knowledge necessary to make a fiscally sound and security-minded decision. Optionally, upon selection, BW Cyber can provide oversight of the migration and implementation stages which begin upon awarding a contract to a new IT MSP.
