TOTAL DIGITAL SECURITY NOMINATED FOR THE FAMILY WEALTH REPORT AWARDS 2018 – Best Cybersecurity Provider for Family Offices.
Total Digital Security, one of the USA’s foremost cybersecurity providers for non-managed environments, has been shortlisted for the Family Wealth Report Awards for “Best Cybersecurity Provider for the Family Office.”
Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the awards were designed to recognize companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2017’.
Commenting on the firm’s nomination, Mr Brad Deflin, Founder and CEO, Total Digital Security said: "Having started in 2013 as an early innovator bringing advanced cybersecurity directly to individuals and families, we are delighted to be recognized with these prestigious awards. The nomination from the Family Wealth Report is a testament to the hard work and thousands of hours the team and I have spent helping families and family offices with one of their top risk management challenges today.”
ClearView Financial Media’s Chief Executive, and Publisher of Family Wealth Report, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to the shortlisted firms. He said: “The firms who have been shortlisted in these awards are all worthy competitors, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards are judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards will recognize the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management. Our aim is to make these annual Awards one of the brightest, and keenly contested highlights in the wealth management calendar.”
Winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner, which will be held in New York on March 8, 2018 at the Mandarin Oriental.
