Cybersecurity in the Financial Industry – Presentation (IIAC Blog)

On November 9, 2015, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Knowledge Bureau’s Distinguished Advisor Conference. The topic of my presentation was Cybersecurity in the Financial Industry. I set out the six elements of an effective cybersecurity plan. I described the sophistication and global dimensions of the cyber threat and the serious consequences of such an attack to firms and clients.
