“When it comes to cybersecurity, the old adage that what got you here, won’t get you there holds true,” says Johna Till Johnson, CEO of Nemertes and WSTA content committee chair. “Practices that worked effectively in the past will no longer protect financial firms from coming threats.”
Financial services firms know all too well that cybersecurity threats are continually growing in power and sophistication. To counter those threats, cybersecurity teams and initiatives need to stay continually focused on the future: Only by putting in place forward looking defenses can they stay protected.
This event focuses on the cybersecurity strategies, technologies, and practices that will help financial firms fight the “next war” in cybersecurity—the one that’s just over the horizon.
