Cyber Managing Director Bill Dixon describes Prescient’s cyber capabilities for private clients, as well as his recent podcast appearance
Founders Counsel Podcast
Prescient’s Bill Dixon, Cyber Managing Director and Head of the new Prescient L.A. office, recently joined Doug Mandell of Withersworldwide to discuss the importance of cybersecurity for family offices and private clients. Matthew Bogaard, founder and CEO of Bogaard Group International, and Sabrina Ross, Privacy and Public Policy Director at Facebook, were also guests on this podcast, which translated top-of-the-line security practices down to a practical level. The major takeaway: basic digital literacy and security awareness are the most comprehensive ways to protect yourself and your family.
The full podcast is available here, and also touches upon family office security management, common sources of corporate threats, and strategies for dealing with scams once they have already occurred.
Dixon’s points on the podcast extend further into the work that he does within Prescient’s Cyber practice. In addition to cyber consulting, he specializes in the following services for family offices and high net worth individuals.
Prescient’s Executive Digital Protection (EDP) service is a three-phase program designed for high-net-worth individuals, executives, and other high-profile individuals. Prescient beings with an extensive assessment that details any and all personal information a client, as well as their family members and associates, have exposed across open, deep, and dark web sources. Any information capable of being delisted from these sources is flagged and, if possible, taken down during a second data removal phase. In addition, Prescient provides recommendations as to how to mitigate the exposure of any especially sensitive information, such as breached passwords or social security numbers that have ended up for sale on the dark web. A third phase of ongoing monitoring is also available for EDP clients looking to maintain a long term sense of their data’s exposure, as well as their online presence generally.
Due to the health concerns, political turmoil, and infrastructural delays of the COVID-19 pandemic, travel has never posed as many risks. Leveraging in-house foreign language fluencies, proprietary cybersecurity tools, and decades of investigative experience in over 110 countries, Prescient produces in-depth travel briefings and risk assessment reports for executives and private clients traveling at home or abroad. When necessary, reports are supplemented with on-the-ground security efforts, cybersecurity consulting, and emergency planning assistance.
