“Seeing the Elephant: How Infosec, Compliance, and Legal Teams Can Work Together to Enable Effective Risk Management”

Date: August 6, 2014 | 8:00am – 10:30am

Event Description

We’re all familiar with the old adage of the three blind men and the elephant. But what happens when the three men work pool their efforts and share their observations? They gain a comprehensive picture of the elephant—and make it possible to harness its power.

That’s essentially the challenge facing many financial services firms today. Infosec, compliance, and legal all have different—and equally valid—views of the risk landscape, and what companies should do about it. But that’s no longer acceptable. In a world in which imperfect compliance can carve billions off a company’s market capitalization, blindly feeling one’s way is no longer sufficient. Infosec, compliance, and legal teams need to engage with each other for the greater good of all.

Join the WSTA and Nemertes Research to hear from this world-class panel of legal, compliance, and information security experts. We’ll engage in a lively dialogue with each other, and with the participants, to capture best practices in cross-silo teamwork. Attendees will leave with an arsenal of ideas and insights they can put to work right away in their own organizations.

This event is open to WSTA Financial Firm Members Only
