This event is dedicated security forum for NSW, exploring the most pressing issues of cybersecurity, resilience and diligence in the financial services industry.

Join us as we help you to navigate the key post-pandemic trends coming up in 2022, including digital transformation accelerating cyber-attacks, data security concerns with the next phase of Open Banking, and partnering with key stakeholders and financial regulators to shape security practices.

Going into 2022, cyber-attacks remain the most difficult threat and risk in the financial services industry despite significant advances by the sector to boost cyber defence, vigilance and resilience. Cybercriminals are still one step ahead of the game, increasing the precision, sophistication and intensity of their malicious attacks along with the take-up of digital products and services providing ample opportunity for cybercrime.

Facing continuous surges in cyber threats especially in 2021, the financial services industry recorded the second-highest number of data breaches across all sectors, leaving leaders trapped in an unending battle for control against criminal hackers. Not only are network breaches and data loss on the line, but security teams have the ultimate duty to protect customer privacy and secure the prime assets of institutions.

• Digital identity and access management
• Threat intelligence and management
• Breach detection and prevention
