Regulators and lawmakers consistently point to cybersecurity as one of the biggest threats facing the banking, or any other industry, for that matter. The UBA brought together a stellar lineup of speakers from IT, security, legal and law enforcement for a virtual IT & Cybersecurity Conference to provide bankers with insights into the current landscape and strategies to mitigate risk.
A common thread throughout the presentations was that IT organizations should not exist in a vacuum but rather need to collaborate with business partners to maximize the bottom line. And it is imperative to have incident response and disaster recovery plans in place … before you need them.
Attendees were also able to choose fascinating breakout sessions throughout the day, including presentations on topics like the Dark Web, Ransomware, Social Engineering, Tabletop Exercises, and Secure Work from Home Environments.
We’ll never be able to eliminate cyber threats completely, but we can lower vulnerabilities by being proactive, flexible and collaborative.
