Forbes: Asset Managers Can Justify Active Fund Fees Through Activism On Governance

At a time when cyber is rising in prominence as a critical business risk, asset managers as a group are coming off another year of shrinking fees and stock underperformance.

International Finance: Asset managers ‘lack fundamental’ knowledge of cyber risk: FCA report

Ryan Dodd, CEO of Cyberhedge, believes: “The FCA report that asset managers lack fundamental understanding of cyber security risk, while welcome, is simply not strong or good enough. Asset managers are the custodians of critical information, they make key investments in the interests of UK citizens and are paid to understand and assess risks, yet they appear unable to do so—even for their own businesses.

The Actuary: Asset management bosses have limited knowledge of cyber risks, FCA warns

After conducting a multi-firm review, the regulator found that company bosses are instead likely to delegate responsibility for cyber security to their IT departments. This could limit the extent to which IT strategies are independently challenged, according to the FCA, which said cyber security should be the responsibility of a “business as a whole”.

Finance Derivative: It’s time to elevate cybersecurity as a macro risk equal to finance

Cyber threats have undoubtedly become one of the greatest risks facing companies today. Exemplifying this, Marriott International has been dominating the headlines since the end of November when it revealed the details of more than 500 million customers had been stolen. And yet despite the scale of the incident, it is only the latest in a long line of high-profile episodes in recent years, with Uber, British Airways and Facebook among other breaches in 2018 that have resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in financial losses.

CNBC: Tech stocks may stay under pressure as investors weigh the data privacy and cybersecurity risks

For investors thinking of buying the dip, we suggest you consider two parallel trends in 2018. In first half of 2018, “FAANG” stocks drove 50 percent of the S&P 500 gains, while deregulation momentum in the U. S. suggested the tech regulation happening in Europe would stay in Europe. But in the last six months, tech has given away all its gains, and attitudes toward tech regulation in the U.

Nasdaq: Three Steps That Will Lower Your Cybersecurity Risk

It’s a common misconception: Having a ton of the latest technology is the solution to all of your cybersecurity challenges (which are likely to only get worse this year and beyond). Just throw more tech at the problem, and it will—somehow—go away. If only that were true, it would be an easy way to prevent an enormous threat to the revenues of many businesses, big and small.

Luxembourg Trade & Invest: Start-up Expertise For Safeguarding Data

Virtually all organisations today possess data of some kind, such as information about their clients, and are possible targets of cyber criminality. They are therefore faced with the challenge of handing cybersecurity issues correctly, which is far from easy. “Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly complex, and probably too complex for most small and medium-sized companies,” confirms Paul Such, CEO of Hacknowledge and one of the speakers at the event “Meet the Cyber Future” organised in October 2018 by Luxinnovation during Luxembourg’s Cybersecurity Week.

CNBC: The red hot ’FAANG’ trade is officially over, now bet on your fellow ’MAAN

As investors look for new acronyms to express investment themes its worth focusing on the fantastic ‘FAANG’ trade (we add Apple to ours) performance and why its days are numbered. Investors are correct to be concerned about the future direction of FAANG stocks. After all, together with Microsoft, these companies accounted for 50 percent of the gains for the S&P 500 in 2018, as well leading the recent declines.

Six major internet companies and internet-service providers, including AT&T, Twitter and Alphabet’s Google, Amazon and Charter Communications will detail their consumer data privacy practices to a U. S. Senate panel Wednesday.

Forbes: Think You have Cybersecurity Taken Care Of? Think Again

If you learned that homes with your same model of alarm system were being broken into 32 percent more often this year than last, you might no longer think your system is secure enough. Yet many companies assume their IT infrastructure is still secure, despite the fact that cyberattacks jumped 32 percent between the first quarters of 2017 and 2018, according to a Positive Technologies report.

CNBC: Facebook is down 20%, but investors aren’t focused on the key issue — CNBC

Almost a week after Facebook reported second-quarter earnings, when it lowered its outlook on revenue and raised its forecast for expenses, the stock is still down 20 percent.

European Investment Fund: Cyberhedge: translating cyber-speak into CFO

If the primary asset of your company is oil, gas or minerals, you will probably spend a lot of time and resources on protecting it, right? Studying the geology, politics, the technology, and taking steps to make it more secure. But what happens if your primary asset is data? I started asking around and it didn’t take long to see that there’s really no standard approach to protecting “data as an asset”.
