CYBER/DATA BREACHES - LATEST THREATS
Cybersecurity is not an information technology problem, it is a business issue.  The cybersecurity threat facing the financial services industry gets bigger by the day, as attackers become more sophisticated and attacks continue to increase exponentially.
The cyber threat landscape is evolving at a much faster rate than corporate cyber defenses are, and one misstep can cost a company billions in lost data, lawsuits, fines, as well as damage to reputation.  This new world order poses risk management and oversight challenges.  This session will help you understand the risks, and discuss what questions risk managers should be asking to help ensure their institution is prepared to respond when the inevitable occurs.  Are you thinking about the right risks? How has cyber insurance been performing for claims?
9:30 - 10:30 am
