Today, NPC will be presenting at Aligned Capital Partners Inc. (ACPI) Practice Management Day at the Oakville Conference Centre. "Aligned Capital Partners have done an outstanding job embracing top-level security strategies, and through education are ensuring their advisor network and partners are well prepared for the innumerable cyber threats facing professionals today. Aligned Capital Partners and their advisors are taking the responsible route, before a threat arrives," says Larry Keating, President and CEO of NPC, who will be presenting.
Attacks have reached near epidemic proportions and are extending beyond surreptitiously encrypted endpoint computers to server lockouts, confidential information extortion and persistent worm infections for repeated ransom demands. He will also outline the current state and near-term outlook for these threats, the distribution methodology, defence strategies, as well as the ethical conundrum of paying criminals that funds more criminality.
Larry will present to ACPI advisors about the Trends in Cyber Attacks in the financial services industry to help them recognize the threat landscape and learn what they can do to secure their practice.
Larry will also be on the cybersecurity panel at the Business Integrity Workshop on October 24th along with Sean Shore (Chief Compliance Officer in the financial services industry, Compliance & Regulatory Law) and Jenna Rinaldo (Vice President at Aon), to discuss the reality of cyber attacks in the financial services industry.

About Aligned Capital Partners Inc.
Aligned Capital Partners Inc. (ACPI), a pioneer in the investment dealer community in Canada, has been providing independent investment advice to retail investors since 1987. In 2012, faced with a challenging environment for small investment dealers, a strategic renewal was undertaken by Christopher J. Enright, Michael Greer, Donald Flack and Carl Fraser. Collectively, they wanted to accelerate change and introduce a more innovative approach to deliver wealth management services to clients. The objective was to diverge from the norm and create a suite of services that focused on the needs and interests of the client, the advisor and the wealth management firm.
