Cybersecurity: The Weakest Link (Incident Response Scenarios) (General Session)
Wednesday, October 11th: 2:00 – 3:15 PM

A chain is only as strong as its individual links. And sometimes those links can break under pressure. Is there a weakness in your cybersecurity chain which could cause a operational or technical disruption? This session will explore everything from phishing schemes to outright cyber attacks in an engaging simulation that will cover roles, responsibilities, and what to do in the critical first moments. Compliance Professionals need to know the terminology, but bring your Chief Technology Officer along to better understand how compliance teams and IT can work together in protecting the Firm!
