In response to the recent National Exam Program Risk Alert, published by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of Compliance and Inspections and Examinations (OCIE), Agio has announced a refined Security Risk Assessment offering that directly meets the compliance requirements put forth by the SEC. Planned for execution this fall, the SEC’s assessments will look at the securities industry’s level of ‘preparedness’ against security threats, as well as gather information about their past experiences.
When asked how Agio will support the industry to address the SEC exams, Randall Bennett, Managing Director of Agio’s Security Division stated, “Our Security Risk Assessment, which we’ve been offering for over 10 years, has now been refined to reflect the level of security control maturity outlined in the SEC’s Risk Alert, directly addressing their target concerns. Specifically, we’ve aligned our gap analysis framework of controls with the SEC’s governance. Agio has always taken a holistic approach to our security solutions, and we will continue to respond to industry regulation as it evolves. Ensuring our clients are protected and ahead of the curve is priority #1.”
