Hackers are Targeting
Wealth Management Firms

A Wealth Management Virtual CISO can keep
your data and clients safe.
Let's Meet

Did you know...

wealth management virtual ciso can help with SEC security audit prep


If the S.E.C. arrives to do a cybersecurity-focused audit, they'll ask you for detailed documentation to PROVE that you meet a list of 76 I.T. and cybersecurity requirements. 

This list can be very painful for wealth management firms who aren't prepared.   


Your clients' investment portfolios are VERY attractive to hackers.

Even if you're a small firm, you still have access to millions of dollars.  And hackers know that.

We've seen attacks that last weeks or months, where hackers really take their time to understand how to get to the funds. 


All of our wealth management clients work with I.T. firms, many of whom are excellent.

Yet when we get involved, we still find that they're missing 50-75% of what they need to pass an audit and stay safe.

Good I.T. firms will tell you that they're not compliance and security experts.  

How a Wealth Management Virtual CISO
can help

How do you eat an elephant?

One bite at a time.

Complying with the SEC is a big project.

We'll help you prioritize what to do first, what to do later, and how to save money.  

We're your accountability partner.

You don't need someone to hand you a 200 page report and then walk away.

That's what a lot of our competitors do.  

We help you build a plan and stick to it.  

Unlimited support.

You can reach out to us anytime.

We provide our clients with unlimited support.  

Whether something goes bump in the night or your hear something scary in the news, we're here for you.  

Compliance can be a little silly.

The SEC and state regulatory bodies can be vague, and leaves you with just enough rope to hang yourself.

We'll help you figure out where it makes sense to spend time and money, and where the regulation is just trying to make your life difficult.

It's a marathon, not a sprint.

We form long-term relationships with our clients, and help them to stay safe. 

We're not just showing up once a year.  

We're working with you to make sure your company is safe and healthy.  

You'll sleep better.

We hear this from clients all the time. 

How nice would it be to not worry about your client data? To know that you took the right steps to protect your business, your data, and your clients?

Here's what our clients think...

"Working with Adelia Risk provides peace of mind. I sleep better at night knowing that our client data is being protected. Josh and his team are responsive, highly knowledgeable and helpful. They take complicated topics and make them understandable. We love working with Adelia Risk!"

Stacey Sternberg
Parsons Capital Management

"Like most investment advisors, I wanted to worry less and prepare for our next audit. Other vendors offered confusing "one size fits all" solutions. Since working with Adelia, we've built a policy that we understand and can achieve! We passed our most recent audit with flying colors."

Charlie Jackson
Jackson Money Management

"Before we hired Adelia, I thought our IT people (me) had the cybersecurity thing covered. 'We' were wrong. Josh and his team helped us find the gaps, close the gaps and document everything so we're as buttoned up as we need to be for our clients and the SEC."

Wealth Management Virtual CISO
frequently asked questions

What is a Virtual CISO?

In large organizations, the Chief Information Security Officer, or CISO, is the guru of all things information security. 

They make sure that your cybersecurity goals line up with your business strategy.  They present to board members about cybersecurity. They manage oversight, and figure out what's missing.

Large organizations have had CISOs for years. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are realizing that virtual CISOs can help them too. 

It's kind of like hiring a marketing agency or a fractional CFO. vCISO services hit the ground running. 

You get industry experience without the cost of very high-priced FTE.

What makes you different?

Here's what our vCISO clients say:

1) Our plans are "right-sized" for businesses with 10-300 employees.  Our competitors can charge tens of thousands of dollars per quarter.  

2) No long-term contracts.  Life is too short to work with unhappy clients.  Cancel anytime with 30 days notice.

3) No extra services.  Our prices already include tools that other vCISO firms make you buy separately.

4) We're not boring.  Information security people can be awfully dry.  Not us.  

What does the Virtual CISO service cost?

Eleventy-billion dollars.

Just kidding - our price varies based on the size and complexity of your organization and the urgency of the project. It's tough to quote a price without having a conversation first, even if it's just an email conversation.  Fill out the form above to start the conversation.  

I have fewer than 10 employees - can you help me?


We do have some clients smaller than 10 employees.  The ones who get value out of working with us already have a relationship with a good I.T. firm, and they want our help making sure that they're doing everything they should.  

Do you think we might be a
good match?

We help over 100 of the best financial services, healthcare, and manufacturing companies across the U.S. with their cybersecurity.
