The breach this adviser experienced compromised the personally identifiable information of about 100,000 individuals, which included thousands of the firm’s clients.

The “safeguard rule” enforced by the federal securities require that all registered investment advisers have written policies and procedures designed to protect their client’s records and information.  This “safeguard rule” was broken by R.T.
