Managing Cyber Threats

10 am - 10:50 am ET
Speaker: Jeffrey Korte, Director and Executive Sponsor, Community Institution & Association Council, FS-ISAC

No single organization can successfully remain isolated in today’s charged cyberspace. Criminal organizations and nation-state actors are increasingly prevalent within the U.S. critical infrastructure. Changes that normally happened gradually over years are now implemented within weeks.

In this presentation learn how cybersecurity teams in financial services have had to adapt strategies and operations to the onslaught of digitization of products, services, and work while contending with fraudsters capitalizing on fear and uncertainty. Learn how the FS-ISAC and its Global Intelligence Office are responding to these threats by furnishing institutions with information and tools to help level the playing field against modern adversaries.
