“Financial firms are both prime targets and among the most sophisticated companies when it comes to cybersecurity,” says Nemertes’ Johnson. “At this annual event, we share best practices and war stories that keep Wall St. firms ahead of the cybersecurity curve.”
Wall St. firms are no strangers to cyberattacks. Virtually every major firm has experienced its share of attacks, and these days most firms are among the most sophisticated organizations on the planet when it comes to defense. That said, a solid defense is no longer enough. Effective cybersecurity initiatives select from a solid portfolio of cybersecurity response solutions, including advanced analytics, automation, and next-generation threat intelligence. Share ideas with your peers, and pick up best practices from thought leaders among the vendor, analyst, and financial community to ensure your cybersecurity response is at the pinnacle of timeliness and effectiveness.
