On Monday 14 March, COOConnect and SuMi TRUST are delighted to be hosting a webinar, Cyber security - what fund managers need to know

Cyber security has emerged in the last 12 months as the least appreciated and most intractable threat facing the fund management industry. Attacks by cyber-criminals are now routine, breaches commonplace, and extortion the principal aim. These attacks seem to be increasing, as the criminals switch their focus from better protected organisations. Our panel explores what threats managers face, and the practical steps they can take to mitigate them.

The topics to be discussed include:

  • Assessing the scale of the risks your organisation is facing
  • Types of attack that can be expected (e.g. denial of service, data theft, loss of assets)
  • What investors look for in due diligence investigations
  • What safeguards regulators expect fund managers to have in place
  • Structuring effective internal processes and procedures
  • Ensuring service providers do not put your data and assets at risk
  • In-house versus vendor solutions to cyber-security shortcomings
