Over four years since the now-infamous Bangladesh Bank cyber heist, where hackers attempted to transfer close to $1 billion from the NY FED account belonging to Bangladesh Bank before walking away with over $60 million, and cyber threats against the financial sector have only grown in volume and sophistication worldwide. With the forcedly hurried shift towards remote working due to COVID-19, hackers are enjoying a much larger attack surface against financial service institutions with alarming success rates. How can security professionals better prepare against cyber heists?

Leading technical and legal experts will lead a webcast anchored in real-world cases, covering the most successful attacks, why they worked, and immediate steps security teams must consider to keep pace with cybercriminals. Our panelists merge large enterprise, federal government and regulatory backgrounds to address issues from various perspectives, covering cyber terrorism, ransomware, access mining and more.
