PPS victim to malicious cyber-attack

15 March 2021 PPS

PPS’s security experts have confirmed that the company has fallen victim to a malicious cyber-attack. An independent forensic investigation into system disruptions since 9 March 2021 currently shows no evidence that any data has been compromised. Our IT experts are now focused on restoring full functionality.

There are a number of alternative processes already in place as an interim measure to minimise the impact to clients. PPS regrets the delays some members are currently experiencing.

The security of our systems and data is our foremost priority.

QUESTION

Do you believe this is the toughest period for financial advice in many years?

ANSWER

Yes, it’s hard to navigate the challenges and difficult to adapt. I’m struggling.
No, I have managed to navigate the challenges and have adapted. I’m good.
50/50. I just feel like whether we like it or not, we have to ready ourselves for change… be resilient and scale for the future. It’s not about survival of the fittest anymore but survival of the quickest. We just have to move on with life.
