Foreside, which provides regulatory and compliance service and technology solutions will offer tailor-made cybersecurity consulting programs and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solutions for all of its 2,000+ Investment Advisors, Broker-Dealers, and global asset managers clients.

“Investment advisors and broker dealers are a common target for threat actors, as they handle highly sensitive client information.

BlueVoyant recently raised $68 million in funding led by Temasek. The company’s team includes former government cyber officials with extensive frontline experience in managing cybersecurity on behalf of the National Security Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Unit 8200 and GCHQ, together with private sector experts. Founded in 2017 by Fortune 500 executives and former Government cyber officials and headquartered in New York City, BlueVoyant has offices in Maryland, Tel Aviv, San Francisco, London and Latin America.
