The Future of Financial Advisors: Why Secure Remote Access Is Imperative

With technology becoming the staple that it is in the world today, a massive amount of Financial Advisors have made the move online, and secure remote access has become increasingly imperative.

Financial Advisors

Remote access is the ability to gain access to a computer or network from a remote distance. For corporations with people at branch offices, telecommuters, or travelling employees who need access to the corporation’s network, this can be a huge benefit. However, for professionals that consistently deal with sensitive data such as Financial Advisors, the risks shine through almost as bright.

According to a survey carried out by the Investment Adviser Association, ACA Compliance Group, and Old Mutual Asset Management, three-quarters of financial compliance professionals now cite cybersecurity as one of their firm’s top issues.

Dealing with highly sensitive and confidential client data on a daily basis, a Financial Advisor ultimately holds the key to their client’s financial life. Assuring security should be a top priority – not top issue.

Unfortunately, however, key issues keep arising for remote advisors regarding their security. A few of the most substantial setbacks and risks being faced by remote Financial Advisors include:

  • General Security
  • Speed of Access
  • Ability to Print
  • Breaches
  • Identity Theft of Clients
