The Hanlon Financial Systems Center at Stevens Institute of Technology, in partnership with the New Jersey Chapter of the Information Systems Audit and Controls Association (ISACA), will host FinCyberSec 2016: Managing Financial Cybersecurity on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at the Stevens Hoboken campus. The one-day conference will explore technical, regulatory, process and human dimensions of cyber threats faced by financial systems and markets.  

Financial cybersecurity is a complex, systemic risk challenge that includes technological and operational elements. The interconnectedness of financial systems and markets creates dynamic, high-risk environments where organizational security is greatly impacted by the level of security effectiveness of partners, counterparties and other external organizations. The result is a high-risk environment with a growing need for cooperation between enterprises that are otherwise direct competitors. There is a new normal, one of continuous attack pressures that produce unprecedented enterprise threats that must be met with an array of countermeasures.Experts from industry and academia will explore a range of cybersecurity topics impacting financial enterprises, including the following:

  • The threat and vulnerability landscape confronting the financial sector
  • Risk assessment practices and methodologies
  • Cybersecurity data analytics
  • An in-depth discussion of financial order routing risks related to cybersecurity
  • Governance perspectives including executive and board considerations
  • Information sharing requirements, challenges and benefits
  • Incident response, investigations and computer forensics considerations for financial organizations

The Financial Cybersecurity Project is a research initiative of the Hanlon Financial Systems Center at Stevens.  The project examines critical topics concerning the safeguarding of financial systems and markets against emerging cyber threats to information, technologies and operations faced by financial institutions that continue to increase in complexity and sophistication. The need for strong collaboration between industry, government and academia has never been greater.
