Silver’s CEO Fizza Khan moderated a timely discussion on the growing threats of Cyber Security in the financial industry on a Webinar hosted by the CFA Society of New York on April 2, 2020.
On March 13, 2020, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (a division of the Department of Homeland Security), issued an alert regarding the increase in cyber threats due to the world’s workforce going remote as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. The alert highlighted the importance of companies hosting an enterprise virtual private network (VPN) solution to connect teleworking employees to a company’s IT network to achieve business continuity. The panel of senior leaders from various facets of the financial services and cybersecurity industries shared firsthand experiences of how their companies are communicating and conducting business remotely, shared best practices regarding the precautionary measures that should be taken to ensure staff are working securely and that there is thorough monitoring of communications across the mix of company issued and personal devices.
