Charles Square Awarded Best Cybersecurity Provider 2022

Proud to have received the prestigious Hedgeweek Award for Best Cybersecurity Provider 2022.

On 30 March 2022, Charles Square (CSq) was recognised as ‘Best Cybersecurity Provider’ at the prestigious Hedgeweek European Awards 2022 held in London. Siv Sivasamy, New Business Director, and Barry Cohen, Director, accepted the award on behalf of CSq.

“We are thrilled to have won against such tough competition. This award is a tribute to the hard work and dedication our team has put in over the years”, said Cohen.

CSq has focused heavily on providing internal and remote IT security services to clients, largely in response to the hybrid working model that has become the norm since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We are ISO 27001 certified and this ensures that all of our controls, processes and procedures are carried out to the highest standard”, continued Cohen. “Built to secure your world, our fully managed IT security package, in addition to our outsourced cybersecurity management and focus on regulatory compliance & strategic cybersecurity requirement, sets the standard for IT security in finance companies and hedge fund managers amongst others”.

Don’t just take our word for it.

“We switched to CSq last year, and their service has exceeded our expectations. The transition was smooth, and all went to plan and budget. They really understood our business needs and worked with us to provide a cost effective and flexible solution.

When we need support, an experienced local technician can escalate as needed. It’s like having an in-house infrastructure team but, most importantly, without the overheads.”

What are the Hedgeweek European Awards

Annually, the Hedgeweek European Awards recognise excellence among European fund managers and service providers across a wide range of sub-categories. More than 100 fund managers and other industry professionals, who form part of the Hedgeweek userbase, vote online to determine the winners from the shortlisted nominees in each category.

The fund manager categories include a wide range of hedge fund related investment strategies and fund types. The service provider categories cover all the key areas of the broader hedge fund industry ecosystem.

The voting and selection process culminates in a prestigious awards and networking event hosted in London, United Kingdom, at which the category winners are celebrated for excellence in their specific fields.
