Sadly, the hackers of the world have not let the pandemic get in the way of their nefarious activities.  In particular, BDs and RIAs have been primary targets.   In our prior blog postings, we discussed business continuity plans and the requirement these plans include cybersecurity provisions.   We believe that the SEC, FINRA, and the various states could begin to review these firms for cybersecurity issues as early as this summer.  Thus, the old adage– be prepared– has never been more true.  We strongly recommend that these firms consult with securities counsel to prepare for this regulatory onslaught.
