‘We’ve invested many millions in tech,’ says Dave King, founder of Digitalis. The firm’s technology mitigates online reputational, physical and cyber-security risks for UHNWs and their families.
Launched in 2009, Digitalis mines clients’ online information, advises on potentially risky data and works to remove or diminish it. After a cyber-attack, the firm also monitors if and where data has been published online.
‘We know within six minutes, and help lawyers jump into action, before an investigative journalist splashes it on a tabloid,’ explains King who also advises political institutions. ‘The bit I like most is being in the office of a prominent chairman and their reaction is, “I didn’t know you could do that”.’
