As financial systems become more dependent on technology — a trend accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic — cyber criminals are lurking, looking for vulnerabilities in systems to steal data and funds. Financial institutions of every size have a responsibility to protect customers’ sensitive information from these wrongdoers. In this webinar we will discuss one of the most prominent cyber threats to our digital systems — ransomware attacks. Our speakers will provide invaluable insights on implementing systemic defenses to mitigate ransomware risks as well as advice for damage control after an incident.
Scrutinizing recent ransomware attacks to identify contributing factors such as outdated software, weak IT oversight and deficient data backup/recovery systems
Coordinating with cybersecurity teams to conduct ransomware risk assessment, including both internal and external threats, and detect and correct areas of vulnerability
Designing post-attack plans to notify stakeholders and law enforcement, guide contact with hackers and file cyber-SARs tailored to regulatory advisories/requirements
