Challenge: elevating cybersecurity visibility in private equity investments

In the fast-paced world of private equity, a leading firm found itself grappling with a significant challenge: limited visibility into cybersecurity and risk posture of its diverse portfolio companies. This firm, renowned for providing expert oversight and advisory services, was in dire need of a solution that would enable them to monitor activities, status, and trends in security, risk, and compliance across their investments with precision and ease. The lack of comprehensive compliance information and reliance on manual processes for governance—such as confirming policy enforcement or building programs—hampered their ability to safeguard their investments effectively.

Solution: implementing RegScale for streamlined cybersecurity oversight

In their quest for a solution that could meet their stringent requirements, the firm chose RegScale for its promise of rapid and effortless implementation. RegScale’s continuous controls monitoring (CCM) platform included governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) alongside threat categories, all delivered with the convenience of extreme automation and multi-tenancy. This feature was particularly attractive as it allowed for the segregation of data among the investment companies, simplifying processes within a single, cloud-native platform. Moreover, RegScale’s promise of real-time visibility into security, risk, and compliance status and trends through intuitive dashboards and reports was exactly what the firm needed to overcome their previous limitations.
