LCG Advisors and Abacode have partnered to bring a cybersecurity due diligence package designed specifically for the financial services sector

LCG Advisors is one of the nation’s leading third-party due diligence and transaction advisory firms, performing more than 1,000 engagements annually. Their clients consist of institutional lenders and investors including large commercial banks, specialty finance companies, private equity groups, family offices, and acquisition-oriented businesses. LCG’s suite of services assist those capital providers and acquirers in assessing and mitigating risk on new transactions and also within existing portfolios. 

“As a strategic partner to highly active, leading firms within the financial services and business sectors, we’ve witnessed a remarkable shift in how risk is being assessed.  Cyber-risk went from being an afterthought to one of the top areas of risk and focus when getting deals done.” said Brian Smith, Managing Partner at LCG.  Mr. Smith also stated, “Since we’re already focused on and imbedded within the transaction space, with this new partnership we’re able to efficiently provide cyber-risk assessments without overly burdening an already complex process.  In addition, we’re able to look at cyber-risk in conjunction with the traditional financial and business risks”

Paul Epstein, Managing Partner at LCG, commented: “Our clients, which consist of the majority of the nation’s largest financial institutions, are faced with increased levels of risk and regulation along with a market that is highly competitive. This partnership with Abacode allows us to quickly address a critical need within an industry that typically evolves and adapts very slowly.” 

Michael Ferris, Abacode CEO, stated: “We have seen first-hand the enormous financial burden of what not performing the correct vulnerability assessment can have on a business.  Cybersecurity assessments are much different from traditional IT audits and are critical to identifying vulnerabilities and risks within an organization. This is why our partnership with LCG Advisors adds so much value to all parties involved.  The entire team at LCG worked extremely hard to ensure that, together, we developed a product that was cost-effective but also met the needs of the entire industry.  It is the right solution at the right time.”

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
