Financial institutions are a constant target for cybercriminals. The long-term impact of a cyber attack could be substantial loss of revenue, valuable data or other company assets. Litigation costs and reputational damage could also result in immediate material loss of shareholder value. Combined with other technology threats to banking channels, such as skimming and ATM malware, financial institutions face significant challenges to protect their clients.

The purpose of this seminar is to describe for financial institutions the steps that can be taken proactively to detect and respond to financial cybercrime attacks. It provides a unique perspective by combining insights from industry experts with the experience of prosecutors and judges who have investigated these types of crimes.
