Cybint and Opus Connect Partner to Bring Critical Cybersecurity Expertise to Financial and Investment Institutions

CYBINT NEWS / NEW YORK / JUNE 11TH, 2019 Global cyber education leader, Cybint Solutions, and portfolio and private equity-focused member association Opus Connect, are taking a stand against cybercrime and digital fraud, offering an unmatched suite of advanced skills training, tools and best practices for financial and investment professionals.

There is an ever-increasing depth and diversity of online information within the financial sector that requires a thorough understanding of how to navigate the web to conduct investigations, KYC reviews, and deep-web due diligence.  Consequently, professionals must understand cyber terminology, threats and opportunities to protect themselves and their clients. The Cybint and Opus Connect partnership fosters that understanding for Opus Connect members through:

  • Cyber training, education and simulation – Role-based cybersecurity training offered online in an advanced simulated platform or live sessions with experts. Training includes advanced specializations, simulated labs, statistical reporting, and certificates.
  • Strategic risk analysis and cyber due diligence services – Customized risk analysis and cybersecurity consulting services are available from Cybint’s team of military trained, and industry security and intelligence experts.
Cybersecurity for Finance Investment

Additionally, professionals have access to Opus Connect’s exclusive and expert educational webinars and roundtables. Most recently, the company hosted roundtables for financial professionals in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles during which Cybint CEO and global cyber expert Roy Zur held sessions on cybercrime and digital fraud, introducing attendees to best practices, industry trends, and how to help prevent a cyber-attack.

“There are few industries impacted more by cybercrime than those in our sector,” said Lou Sokolovskiy, CEO & Founder of Opus Connect. “Part of our charter is to equip our members with the resources and tools to protect their organizations and clients, and we’re exceptionally pleased to count Cybint’s best-in-class offerings among those resources.”

“The pace of change in this industry is incredible, which can make it difficult to stay abreast of the best practices and knowledge necessary to keep your organization and clients safe,” added Zur. “We’re committed to partnering with Opus Connect to ensure its members have access to the resources they need.”
