    * Do you understand the regulators and standards that impact your firm?

    * Are you confident that your firm is prepared for the inevitable breach?

    * Do you have an incident response plan in place in the event of a breach?

    This guide will walk you though implementing cybersecurity best practices across multiple resources.  Don't be reactive, download this guide and take a proactive approach to developing the strategy you need to protect your client and your practice.
