FMC Conference Call – Cybersecurity Best Practices

December 2, 2016

New York:  Family Management hosted a Cybersecurity Briefing for its clients this morning, to highlight the latest threats and issues affecting individuals and corporations online, and offering practical steps that can be taken to mitigate the risks.

Guest speaker Marc Pantoni, from Precision IT, provided an overview of the current environment and recent trends in cyber-related targets and attacks.  In equal parts informative and terrifying, Marc outlined the importance of personal awareness of prevailing threats and detailed some of the most recent scams and cyber-crimes happening in the US and around the world.   Finally he provided some specific actions that people can take to reduce the threat of being a victim of a cyber-attack.  The key topics, best practices and resources for further information can be found in the attached Guide, that we are pleased to share.
