The FINOP Exchange is so excited to have Dan and Mike speak about Cybersecurity
The Woodlands, Texas (PRWEB) July 25, 2014
An expert in the field of corporate securities law for over 30 years, Daniel LeGaye is proud to unveil the presentation that runs the gamut on cybersecurity issues impacting broker-dealers and investment advisers. Partnering with fellow speaker, Michael Schaps, this presentation aims to shed additional light on a topic that continues to climb in relevance.
“Over the past year, there has been an increased level of attention focused on cyber-attacks and their impact on broker-dealers and investment advisers, both by law makers, regulators and law enforcement agencies. Due to the perception that the financial markets represent the heart of capitalism, they have evolved into a significant target for hackers and terrorists, both to misappropriating assets and sensitive information, but also corrupting data and or causing operational disruption,” says Daniel LeGaye, CEO of LeGaye Law Firm. “When it comes to online security, 2014 will be a difficult year for financial service providers.”
The comprehensive presentation will feature numerous topics related to cyber security including, but not limited to pharming, identity theft, mobile access, protecting client information, proposed legalization and standards, and latest hacker and cyber security scams. Speaking on the point of latest scams, Daniel LeGaye says, “The sophistication of the cyber criminals and terrorists has been increasing in both their technical expertise, as well as their utilization of computer software that is readily available to promote new generations of malware.”
The FINOP Exchange is a secure virtual community designed to provide a quarterly roundtable discussion for FINOPs and finance professionals to share ideas, best practices, network, and stay current on industry regulations. To offset administrative costs, a membership fee of $175 is assessed annually.
