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.

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.
