External IT, the leading provider of secure cloud solutions to financial services firms including RIAs, breakaways, asset managers and family offices, is hosting an hour-long webinar on technology solutions specifically for family offices including security, compliance, integration, mobility, and business continuity. It will be led by Justin Kapahi, Technical Director of External IT, and will feature guest speaker Steve Draper, Head of Technology Operations and Data Security Network of Family Office Exchange (FOX).

"Many family offices struggle with adapting more modern forms of cloud technology, leaving these organizations and their clients vulnerable to potential cybersecurity risks. Some of the unique qualities that make a family office successful, such as an inclination to adhere to tradition and time-tested process, conflict with the need to remain nimble from a technological perspective," said Sam Attias, Managing Director of External IT. "This webinar will help address those concerns and delineate the advantages of leveraging cloud computing technology, specifically in line with the needs of the family office client. As cybersecurity breaches become increasingly prevalent, no one can afford to be digitally complacent," concludes Attias.

Attendees of the webinar will come away with a broader perspective on how cloud computing can help family offices elevate their client service offering, offer heightened security, increase data protection, and allow for better intra-office efficiency. The webinar will also highlight the inherent risks that family offices may be harboring by not modernizing their technology, both from a safety and from a client retention perspective.

The webinar takes place on Thursday, April 7th at 11a EDT. To register, please visit
