Greenhill Case Study

Greenhill is a global independent investment bank that advises corporations, partnerships, institutions and governments on matters that include financing, restructuring, raising capital, and mergers and acquisitions. From 17 offices on five continents, the firm uniquely focuses on client services versus investing, trading, underwriting or lending. Greenhill’s team of managing directors averaging over 25 years’ experience provides seasoned insight to all major industries and markets. They have built a reputation for independence, discretion and providing unconflicted advice, particularly in cases of shareholder activism.Greenhill has steadily and strategically grown its services and footprint since being founded in New York City in 1996. It remains mid-market in size, a factor that presents security challenges, according to CIO John Shaffer.

“It’s important to be prepared in an ever-changing threat landscape populated by threat actors plus staff who bring their own devices and connect them from home,” Shaffer explains. “That presents a major challenge for our team to ensure that our data remains our data, and to affirm our employees’ home networks do not become a bridge for getting into our corporate network.”
