Keynote - The Hacker’s Blacklist: 7 Ways to Keep Hackers Out of Your Practice and Protect Clients

8:30 AM - 9:30 AM
Disinformation campaigns. AI-enabled ransomware. Cyber blackmail. Weaponized “Internet of Things” devices. The cyberthreat landscape is shifting in new and critical directions – and it impacts the financial sector more than any other industry. While monetary gain still drives cybercrime, the accumulation and exercise of geopolitical and marketplace influence is the latest holy grail. Criminals are strategically leveraging potent tools, from fake news for stock manipulation to ransomware and cyber blackmail techniques that lock up, publish and then destroy vital client files. A common mistake is to think that “I.T. has taken care of these threats” or that evolving trends won’t affect an advisory practice like yours. And that is where the danger lies.

In Cyberthreat 2020 John Sileo will connect the cybercrime dots from past lessons to future threat vectors. From there, you will learn defensive next steps and how to inspire a deep culture of security to keep your organization out of reputation-altering headlines.
