Protecting Customer Data and Your Computers (Part 1)

Savvy financial adviosors know that “bad things can happen” on the internet. As a trusted professional, you must take steps to safeguard your computers and your customer data [particularly their Non- Public Personal Information (“NPPI”)] from unauthorized access and potential loss. The SEC has mandated that for Registered Representatives and Registered Investment Advisors, establishing unique user accounts, using complex password protection and maintaining appropriate anti-virus software are all required computer protection procedures. Additionally, you must also maintain a “firewall” on all internet-connected computers. Simply put, without a firewall, your computers sit “naked” on the internet and are exposed to any potential threats.

Centaurus Financial Offers Cutting-Edge Training for Newly-Independent Advisors

At Centaurus Financial, we strongly believe that our growth is your growth – our success is derived from our “organic growth” strategy which is driven by our industry-renowned Brokerage Design & Development (“BDD”) Quantum Leap Workshops.

While independent financial advisors are uniquely positioned to act in the best interests of the clients, you are also challenged with the responsibility of building and managing their own business. Centaurus understands this challenge and has created the most robust educational platform for independent financial advisors in the industry. While competitors spend most of their resources head-hunting for top branches and paying for those efforts in handsome sums, Centaurus has chosen to dedicate its valuable resources to an educational platform that turns good advisors into great advisors.
