How We Protect You

Morgan Stanley has built a leading cyber defense organization in-house, drawn from former senior professionals at government security agencies and the technology industry. We work nonstop around the globe to defend your digital assets and monitor the threat landscape on your behalf.
Our participation in many government and industry forums helps us gather insights and improve our defenses. Our Fusion Resilience Centers around the globe detect and respond to cyber threats on a 24/7 basis.
When someone logs in to your account, we evaluate the login and flag unusual or potentially high-risk activities in real time to identify indications of attempted fraud.
Our digital tools are built with the security of client assets and data as a top priority. All login sessions to Morgan Stanley Online and the Morgan Stanley Mobile App have end-to-end, high-grade encryption.
We offer strong authentication options to verify your identity and protect access to your accounts, including device registration, one-time security codes and more.
With VoiceID, we use a voiceprint—like a digital fingerprint—to seamlessly confirm your identity when you call our Service Center.
As a complimentary benefit to clients with a Morgan Stanley CashPlus Account, we offer a package of identity and credit protection services.
In the unlikely event that cyber activity breaches our security measures, we will reimburse you for losses on your Morgan Stanley Wealth Management accounts that are a result of the unauthorized access to our systems through no fault of your own.
