Why This Course?

Cybersecurity is about protecting our institutions, customers and communities from those who seek to do us harm. Cyber-attacks have the potential to affect our national security, economic growth and consumer confidence. Every financial institution,  regardless of size or geographic location has a responsibility to enhance their cyber resilience and strengthen their security  posture.

The Cybersecurity Leadership Seminar for Banking Professionals will provide participants with the tools and knowledge required to enrich their existing information security program, champion cybersecurity and transform their institution.

The 2017 course will reflect the current state of cyber security and cover new laws and regulations, including the NY DFS Cybersecurity Requirements for Financial Services Companies, the May 2017 update of the FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool, as well as new cyber threats and actors, and new technologies.

  • Cybersecurity BOD dashboard report template
