PANEL: Extending data security across the entire supply chain – Sophos

Sponsor: Sophos

Most financial institutions are linked to a complex web of third party vendors, each of which must be measured and managed. What efforts are being used to manage downstream supplier cybersecurity? How can increased diligence and investment into networked security mitigate exposure risk? How can such protection be used in tackling both internal and external threats?

Confirmed Speaker:
Senior Representative, Sophos

10:20 – 10:50 GMT
PRESENTATION: Tomorrow is today – how the “future of work” changes the security paradigm

 Financial Services institutions remain a significant target for cyber attacks, and continue to demand the utmost vigilance in terms of cyber security. While practices in the sector are often notably better than those witnessed elsewhere, there are still questions to be asked around the extent and sufficiency of safeguards. As the problems grow in scale and complexity, what does the current security paradigm look like and what can institutions do to protect themselves in the face of ever more sophisticated attacks?

Confirmed Speaker:
Steven Furnell, Professor of Cyber Security, University of Nottingham

INTERMISSION 10:50 – 11:20 GMT
11:20 – 11:50 GMT
PRESENTATION: Future-proofing innovation – Protecting your digital transformation strategy

How can cyber defence strategies be strengthened amidst a radically changing digital environment? What are the limitations of existing platforms, and how can digital transformation allow for greater networked security between peers? Where can platform providers assist in this integration?

Sian John, Director, EMEA/APJ Cybersecurity Strategy, Microsoft

11:55 – 12:25 GMT
PRESENTATION: Navigating the intricate balance between security & convenience

Customers want fast access to banking services, but it also needs to be fraud-safe. How do financial institutions manage this duality? Where does the burden lie in developing a resilient security culture? Can a pluralistic security environment, where the responsibility for security is shared across all aspects of development and operations, change this?

12:30 – 13:00 GMT
PRESENTATION: Taking the quantum leap – enhancing cryptography to tackle QIT threats

Quantum Information Technologies (QIT) are set to bring sudden and game-changing increases in computing capability. What are the use cases for QIT in financial services? Where are the key threats for FS institutions, specifically with regards to data integrity and asset confidentiality? How can adapted cryptography ensure successive securitisation for financial institutions?

INTERMISSION 13:00 – 13:40 GMT

13:40 – 14:10 GMT

PRESENTATION: The importance of effective due diligence for financial M&A

With more complex threats than ever, a workable cyber security strategy requires a strong approach, that also remains compliant with regulatory data and operational standards. Against the backdrop of the technological innovations taking place, how can we best balance compliance with security? Where are the current and potential future roadblocks to this? What solutions are there available to assist?

Confirmed Speaker:
Sergiu Sechel, Cyber Security Manager, EY

14:15 – 15:00 GMT
PANEL: Effective planning – how to be secure in an age of uncertainty

Sponsor: KnowBe4

With cyber attacks against financial institutions up to record numbers, cyber criminals have a perfect combination of global crises and technologocial developments to penetrate complex security systems. In what ways must cyber defences be adapted to counter existing and emerging threats and minimise risk of compromise? How have criminal penetration methods, such as DDoS or Ransomware, become more sophisticated, and are current security measure sufficient? What external solutions are available that can help combat these ever-adapting threats?
