Cybercrime has rapidly become a top risk for Boards, management and regulators, while consumers are also more aware of cyber risks and demanding greater protection of their personal information. With an increasingly complex security environment, cyber-attacks are also becoming more elaborate and difficult to detect. Businesses need to ensure that they have robust prevention and detection methods in place focusing on solutions that can reduce enterprise risks while also helping organisations operate in a digital world.

This seminar will consider the issue of Cyber Risk from two perspectives, that of the regulator who has the dual mandate of protecting consumers and ensuring the prudent regulation of financial institutions. The other perspective is that of a professional IT services provider who works with industry who will give an overview of the technical considerations for cybersecurity.

This seminar is aimed at a wide audience, including Data Protection Officers, Compliance Officers, IT Professionals, Risk Professionals & the senior management of regulated firms.

Joern Dobberstein, Inspections Manager, Banking Supervision Onsite Inspections will discuss the Central Bank’s expectations regarding cybersecurity risk, give practical examples of cyber security issues his team has encountered, discuss the importance of policies and procedures and what to expect in a Central Bank inspection.

Dave Anderson, Head of Consulting, Ammeon will discuss causes of technology related breaches, both internal and external sources, suggest a field guide for reducing internal source breaches and matters to consider when using the private and public Cloud.

This session will be chaired by Aisling Clarke, Director ACOI and Chair of ACOI’s Data Protection & Technology Working Group.
