Cyber-attacks are increasing in frequency and complexity, with financial institutions considered a major target by cyber criminals. No longer do you question if your organization will be breached, but when. Risk managers and second line of defense should be at the forefront of managing these risks, but with a traditional emphasis on technology leading the way in this domain, they are often in the state of catch up

INFONEX's Cyber Risk for Financial Institutions will address the evolving threat landscape in the financial industry, with an emphasis on shifting the conversation around cyber as an IT problem to one that spans the entire enterprise. Our faculty will emphasize the role of the risk manager and the specific actions that they can take to help their organizations stay ahead of the threats. They will tackle the relevant risk and control assessments to address cyber security risk and mitigating controls and provide you with guidelines for how to provide an independent challenge to the various cyber security risk assessments conducted by the first line of defence.

Hear what key risk and performance indicators and thresholds have been established for the federally regulated financial institution's key inherent cyber security risks and controls. Engage in scenario analysis to consider a material cyber-attack, mitigating actions, and identify potential control gaps. Learn how to leverage your risk expertise and appropriately assess cyber security risk within your organization's change management process.

With continued and increasing reliance on technology, the interconnectedness of the financial sector, as well as the critical role that financial institutions play in the overall economy, cyber security is growing in importance. As a risk manager, engaged in the discipline of threat mitigation, you are less daunted by emerging threats but you understand the importance of vigilance more than most. Join us in Toronto and learn how you can use your experience and insights in risk and protect your organization. Register today!
