Cybercriminals thrive on instability, and 2021 has so far offered rich pickings: from the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus pandemic to economic and technological disruption as we adapt to the digital age, this year has been dominated by an increasingly complex threat landscape for financial services firms.

As employees shift towards a hybrid working model in the long term, companies have struggled to keep data safe across on-premise and cloud storage, with siloed legacy systems adding to the compliance and security headaches presented by a disparate and digital-first workforce.

Meanwhile, hackers -be they state-sponsored or operating from their bedroom- are deploying ever more sophisticated approaches to target vulnerable customers, carry out fraud and infiltrate core systems, all of which mean that FS firms are locked in a race to stay ahead of their invisible adversaries.

With all of this in mind, FStech presents the third annual CyberSecurity Live conference, bringing together experts from key institutions, regulators and government - along with the leading tech firms - to debate these pressing issues and more.

The day-long session, taking place online, will bring together keynote speeches, interactive demonstrations and lively panel debates.

We'll be assessing the current state of financial services cyber security preparedness and answering the biggest questions facing those in charge of protecting their organisations.

You’ll learn how to cut through the hackers' jargon, hear from watchdogs and trade bodies about how they’re working to prevent attacks, and get a peek at the latest software and hardware innovations to keep your reputation intact.
