Financial Services Information Security Network

April 24 – 25, 2017 | Lukton, UK

The Financial Services Information Security Network will bring together European information security leaders from retail banks, investment banks, exchanges, asset managers, hedge funds and payment service providers to network, share best practice and discuss the current and future pressures facing the industry as a whole in a private and discreet environment conducted under the Chatham House Rule.

Threat campaigns towards financial institutions are ever more sophisticated and with unprecedented press engulfing the industry, the modern day financial services’ CISO must drive innovation into their organisation’s risk and security operations to better combat the threat landscape.

With increasing pressure from the regulators, managing risk and providing clear transparency of the threat landscape as well as protecting the brand from unwanted media attention is proving more and more challenging.

Protection from external risk isn’t enough and with the primary attack methods of entry to the organisation now being through the internal user and suppliers, it’s time for the CISO leaders to re-address their awareness, engagement and third party risk programmes.

While regulatory compliance reigns as the primary focus for investments and objectives beating both re-active incident related and pro-active risk related drivers, combating the threat environment of today and tomorrow requires innovation in threat intelligence, user behavioural analysis, third party risk management, process collaboration and empowering the end user through (re)education to name a few.
