This firm signed on as an iCorps' Encompass Program client, with benefits including maintenance from mid-level consultants, IT monitoring of all systems and servers, IT leadership from a senior consultant, and procurement and account management. After doing so, they began their digital transformation, migrating to Office 365 to improve employee workflows, data organization, and more.
The firm was also looking for a security strategy that could adapt to changing industry compliance standards put forth by the Financial Industry Regulation Authority (FINRA) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). They wanted to be an early adaptor of New York State's 23 NYCRR 500, a sweeping cybersecurity regulation going into effect in 2019. Through strategic security initiatives, their company is now poised for a seamless journey through the changing compliance landscape.
