Agenda | Location

This event will consist of a series of Seminar presentations, followed by a Panel Discussion. The Seminar presentations will each focus on a unique cybersecurity challenge faced by the financial industry. The Panel Discussion will field questions from the audience, share best practices, and more. Read on for a full description.

Seminar | Cybersecurity threats and attacks are on the rise. Products and technologies promising protection proliferate. Yet financial services firms continue to suffer brand-damaging breaches that reduce productivity and cause compliance concerns. This seminar provides a comprehensive view of the threat landscape, and offers a cohesive look at effective cybersecurity strategies and best-practice operations. We’ll cover zero-trust security, risk assessments, cloud security, and other timely topics.

Participants will walk away with an updated awareness of the current and future threat universe. They’ll receive actionable recommendations and best practices for securing their enterprise infrastructure, applications, and operations. And they’ll gain an understanding of third party risk and how to reduce it.

Panel Discussion You have a cybersecurity strategy, architecture, framework, and operating model. You’ve got the policies and processes in place to ensure your enterprise is compliant and resilient. But how do you know if your approach to either is best-in-class?

This lively and informative panel session discusses the practical and actionable issues around the real-world operations and best practices for cybersecurity, compliance, and resilience.

Participants will learn:

  • What best-in-class security operational metrics are, and how to achieve them
  • How to evaluate cybersecurity technologies on the basis of risk
  • Best practices for key security processes and policies, including incident response, third-party risk assessment, and other foundational processes
  • How to staff and manage a cybersecurity team effectively
