About this talk

2016 saw the first Data Breach Unicorn with the loss of over 1 Billion records from Yahoo. How do we move forward in 2017 when the risks continue to increase, cybersecurity controls continue to under-perform, and cybersecurity professionals continue to be thrust into purely defensive positions in most financial organizations? This keynote we will explore the new normal for cybersecurity at financial institutions and FinTech companies, the latest attacks and trends & controls, and how to enable business through cybersecurity.
