David Edwards, Heron Financial

NY-based wealth management firm Heron Wealth didn’t want to make headlines by being hacked.

Cyber security is more important than ever, especially in the financial industry. Heron’s President and Wealth Advisor David Edwards knew that without the right security, it would only be a matter of time before they were hacked.

“The reason why you should outsource your IT, as opposed to keeping it in-house, is because the outsourced team will be looking at 50 firms a year, and any weird situation that could come up, they will have seen it before and will know how to solve it,” said Edwards. “So that’s what you’re paying for; you’re paying to have this vast inventory of knowledge available to you so that you don’t worry about technology.”
