We live in an age where cybersecurity attacks pose both an ongoing and mounting threat to personal data. As a fiduciary that acts in our clients’ best interest, BCM takes cybersecurity seriously, ensuring that we maintain the highest standards for protecting our clients’ private information.
Following cybersecurity guidance published by the SEC in 2020, BCM worked with Rader Solutions (“Rader”) for over a year to design and implement a cybersecurity program that allows us to meet our fiduciary duty to our clients. The combination of BCM’s SEC compliance expertise with Rader’s technical expertise has resulted in what we believe to be a strong program for protecting client data. Some of the features we have implemented include:
-Monitoring of all network traffic on BCM’s system using firewalls, intrusion detection, email security, and content filtering.
-Use of software to detect incoming fraudulent emails that help prevent unauthorized software and malware from gaining access to BCM’s system.
-Implementation of a vendor cybersecurity management program and ongoing review of vendor cybersecurity efforts.
-Implementation of multi-factor authentication, wherever possible.
-Implementation of strengthened email encryption.
-Implementation of a mobile device management program.
-Ongoing employee training on a variety of cybersecurity best practices.
These standards are built on a framework to deal with cyberthreats as they constantly evolve. As such, we continue to remain vigilant and regularly review our cybersecurity program—maintaining the goal of protecting your sensitive information.
