Paul Abel


I have been working in the IT industry for the last 22 years. With the last 15 years specializing in the IT and Cybersecurity provisions for financial services firms. Over this time, I have gained a huge amount of knowledge and expertise working with hundreds of alternative investment firms throughout the UK, Europe, US and Asia. I have supplemented my experience with industry specific qualifications such as The Henley Business School Executive Hedge Fund Program and most recently the CISSP certification in addition to a degree in Computer Science. I have a unique blend of skills, experience and qualifications which allow me to consult and advise clients of various sizes on all items relating to Cybersecurity ranging from Technical and Operational controls to Policies and Incident Response. I currently hold the position of Principal Consultant at ACA Global whereby I manage the Cybersecurity programs for Registered Investment Advisors globally. Prior to joining ACA Global, I spent time with Edge Technology Group (UK), Richard Fleischmann & Associates (RFA) and Drawbridge Partners.
