MIke raises a lot of great points on a topic none of us gets excited about but could cripple us when we least expect it. Especially in the world of cross platform integration that many RIA practices are exposed to like Single Sign On, its an acute problem. One breach at the front door can ripple through almost every application used by a practice. Kudos to Mike for getting Kate Upton, Jennifer Lawrence and Kirtsen Dunst mentioned in RIA Biz. That’s got to be a first!
