Digital transformation initiatives remain the top priorities as financial services organizations look to innovate and improve their digital customer experiences. Business innovation and growing customer base have resulted in the proliferation of new applications, supporting micro-services, and massive amounts of sensitive data that is exchanged. These new distributed applications have greatly expanded attack surfaces, making them ripe targets for fraud and advanced cyber threats such as ransomware and supply chain attacks.

While these attacks continue to pose threats to the financial industry, the security professionals are also being challenged to keep up with compliance, customer data privacy and protection, GRC, and advanced threats including ransomware, hacks, and data-stealing malware.

It is critical, now more than ever, to establish centralized GRC programs, continuous threat modelling and assessment, and Zero Trust-based cybersecurity controls.

Key Takeaways:

  • Modern approaches to Governance, Risk and Compliance
  • Using Zero Trust principles to protect apps and APIs in highly distributed environments
  • Integrating cybersecurity controls and threat modelling into DevOps pipelines  

Moderated by Dr. Bob Mark, Managing Partner Black Diamond Risk & Regional Director PRMIA, where experts will discuss approaches to Cybersecurity and GRC Requirements in Modern Application Environments.
