“Effective cybersecurity is as much an art as it is a science,” says Johna Till Johnson, CEO of Nemertes and Content Committee Chair for the WSTA. “While there are plenty of well-designed frameworks and methodologies, cybersecurity is a moving target. Connecting with other cybersecurity professionals and sharing best practices is a key part of staying up to speed.”
This event brings together cybersecurity professionals from across the financial services industry to review the threat universe facing financial cybersecurity firms, review operational security best practices, and highlight critical technology areas. Cybersecurity is a perennial challenge for financial services firms.
Even the most powerful and sophisticated cybersecurity teams are confronted by equally powerful and sophisticated hackers (many funded by nation-states). And while standards and frameworks such as NIST’s cybersecurity framework and the MITRE ATT&CK framework can provide helpful guidelines, many times financial services firms and themselves operating far ahead of these standards.
The best defense? Staying informed and ahead of the curve when it comes to technology, threats, and best practices.
