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.
