MII Webinar Series

Cyber Resilience in the Financial Sector - Preparing for the Covid Cyber Storm

Tuesday, 12/8/2020
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM CST

The impact of Covid-19 (C19) on cyber risk is like a confluence of forces producing the ideal conditions for a cyber related storm that could impact critical functions and industry ecosystems. The global economy is in chaos, dealing with an unprecedented crisis affecting all supply chains and literally transforming society. Cyber threat actors have taken advantage of this “opportunity” with International, European and National law enforcement agencies reporting huge increases in cybercrime and fraud related activity.

It’s a new era and as we endeavour to “rebound” into a new normal, we have to be cognisant of a number of facts. Operational models have changed and therefore the cyber related risks have too. Our new greater reliance on the Internet, the digital economy and digital architecture is reflected in a new supply chain. The ubiquitous adoption of remote access technologies to enable WFH (Work from Home) practices often deployed on residential networks and personal devices perhaps did not always follow the normal assurances of enforced policies. The reality today, is that the “pre-Covid-19 cyber strategy” may not be aligned with the new business model of today.

As we deal with this “C19 Cyber Storm” we enter the “new normal” it is an imperative for boards to make risk informed decisions. They need to reassess the digital dependencies of their organisation and risks accrued to restore their risk profile to an acceptable level.

Join Paul C Dwyer, president of the ICTTF - International Cyber Threat Task Force as he outlines the challenges facing organisation’s and the 10 key steps they can take to transition to the “new normal”. This webinar will showcase content from the CCRO Certified Cyber Risk Officer course delivered in partnership with the ICA.
