What will you learn about?

Like other issues that may impact dealer members as well as the financial services industry as a whole (like money laundering), Cybersecurity and Privacy is not just an issue for the compliance department to worry about and manage. Given the interaction of investment advisors and sales assistants as front-line staff with clients, investment advisors and dealer members are uniquely positioned to play a critical role in the detection and mitigation of cybersecurity and privacy issues. This course will support investment advisors and dealer members in identifying cybersecurity and privacy threats and help them to avoid falling victim to the perils that accompany such threats.
