"The threat environment has never been more dangerous," says Johna Till Johnson. "Virtually every financial services firm is under attack. To effectively respond to this evolving universe of threats, cybersecurity professionals need to stay up to speed in the latest technologies and best practices."

"Balancing data security compliance with impending regulation challenges can be daunting for even the most advanced banking and financial firms," said Ajay Arora, Co-founder of Vera. "We're thrilled to be speaking at this WSTA seminar to help today's firms gain the necessary resources and knowledge to comply with regulatory guidance for encryption, access rights, and data loss prevention, while also promoting better security awareness. Our time is now and it's up to us to ensure more seamless, secure collaboration when sharing our most sensitive data with customers, partners, and employees all over the world."

Seminar Overview

It’s no secret that cybersecurity is a growing headache for Wall Street firms. Even with world-class talent, state-of-the-art automation, and best practices, attackers find a way in. And in fact, the attackers may already be inside, infecting endpoints, workloads, services and physical devices that are operating below the radar of conventional security operations.

This seminar provides an overview of the most critical threats facing Wall Street firms today, and zeros in on the blind spots that even the best organizations often have. It covers the next-generation architectures that leading-edge organizations are increasingly adopting to deliver defense-in-depth in a zero-trust environment. It addresses the critical bellwether cybersecurity technologies—including advanced endpoint security, IoT security, analytics, and machine learning–and how to deploy them effectively. Finally, it covers some of the legal and financial moves you can make to reduce risk, such as what to look for (and what to avoid) in a cybersecurity insurance offering. You’ll come away with an actionable plan for accelerating your security initiative and providing best-in-breed protection.
