Why You Should Attend 
Cyberattacks against the financial services industry and third-party entities that support the financial services sector have soared over the past few years, and the costs associated with such crimes have continued to surge. The current cyber threat landscape also has rapidly changed due to new geopolitical factors, COVID-19, and emerging technologies. In one of the most heavily regulated industries, regulators are demanding enhanced cyber vigilance within the financial services sector. Over the last two years, the OCC, FRB, FDIC, FTC, SEC, NYDFS, and NCUA have issued or proposed new cyber regulations, and these regulators have issued multi-million dollar fines on companies that have failed to comply with cybersecurity regulations and/or risk management obligations. The evolving threat landscape, increasing regulations, growing litigation and regulatory enforcement concerns, and skyrocketing cyber insurance costs, have fundamentally changed cyber risk management and compliance programs within the financial services industries.  In addition, corporate executives and boards of directors have not been immune to these enhanced regulations and costs as greater emphasis has been placed on cybersecurity governance and executive responsibility.  As cyber threats and regulations are rapidly increasing in the financial services sector, the concerns with managing these risks effectively have only increased. This program will review the cybersecurity threat landscape in the financial services industry, applicable regulations, trends in enforcement actions and private litigation, and best practices for designing and managing compliance programs, mitigating risk, and handling issues if they arise.
