The Financial Services, Security & Risk Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for senior security, risk, resilience and operations executives across EMEA region.

This roundtable, facilitated by Dataminr, addressed the need for effective data and risk management within Financial Services.

The threat of financial penalties is ever-present, and cybercriminals are amplifying their efforts to extort organisations and expose their data for profit. Increasingly, these attacks can also threaten physical security systems. How does real-time threat detection enhance operational resilience?

Managing operational & data risks in a real-time world

As financial organisations continue to take their operations online, the effective administration and protection of virtual assets is now more critical and challenging than ever. The interconnectedness of cyber and physical threats means that a converged security approach is essential.

As seen recently at Morgan Stanley and Citibank, a lack of rigor in data management can result in heavy fines. Concurrently, cybercriminals are amplifying their activity following the outbreak of COVID-19; the recent cyberattacks on global organisations such as Tesla demonstrated how this can expose physical security systems.

These incidents make it abundantly clear that a data-driven strategy is necessary to adapt to the evolving risk landscape, and a previously untapped resource could spell the difference: publically available data. Curating and analysing it, in real-time, could redefine the way corporate risk is addressed for years to come.

  • With trillions of bytes of open-source data created every day, does your organisation have an effective curation strategy to find the information that matters?
  • How confident are you that you receive the right insights into evolving threats, physical and virtual, with enough time to deliver robust crisis management
  • How are your operational security challenges being addressed by your digital transformation strategy?
