Cybersecurity Webinar Archives

Today's cyberattacks are designed to be fast-moving. Malware and Ransomware can infect a single device in a matter of minutes. They are designed to move laterally through the network. Between when you go to bed at night and wake up in the morning, your organization can lose access to the data and systems that support your business operations. It's important for financial institutions to stay informed about the latest threats, how threat attackers work and reliable options for prevention, detection and remediation. To help you do this, we have created a series of on-demand webinars featuring our cybersecurity experts.

When Ransomware Strikes -
The Steps To Take When Faced With A Ransomware Attack

Mar 31, 2020 |  Online - 2:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time

Just when we thought ransomware was passé, it seems to be making a strong comeback. A lot of the ransomware we see is automated and we know it is part of a larger campaign, but some of the most destructive ransomware is part of a sophisticated, targeted operation.It usually happens in the middle of the night. Not necessarily because "It must be the Russians!" but because cybercriminals have fully reconnoitered your network and will initiate the encryption of your files when someone is least likely to sound the alarm.

This is exactly why ransomware attacks hit on Friday afternoons and over three-day weekends. Cybercriminals need the encryption process to execute thoroughly and without interruption. Like burglars casing a home, they strike when they know they’re least likely to get caught.

Monday morning at eight o'clock, you receive an urgent call from your head of IT – employees across your organization are locked out of their computers, vendors are asking why billing is interrupted, customers and members aren't able to access their accounts.

During this webinar our presenters will reveal:

  • Who should you call when your organization is hit?
  • Who can you tell what information and when?
  • What are the immediate steps you should (and shouldn't) take to mitigate harm to your business operations and infrastructure?
  • What does an Incident Response team do to facilitate business recovery?
  • Do you have stand-alone cyber insurance or perhaps a cyber endorsement to another policy?
  • Do you know how cyber insurance can help the situation?

Preparing For Cybersecurity Threats You’ll Face In 2020

Being aware of the threat landscape can help you understand how best to build your defenses to combat them. In this webinar you will hear our cybersecurity experts reveal:

  • A look back at the cybersecurity threats from 2019
  • The threat landscape for 2020
  • Trends in ransomware, malware and other viruses
  • The state of cyber threats aimed at financial institutions
  • Steps to take to stay ahead of the attackers

The Anatomy of a Cyberattack

Ransomware is a prevalent and extremely profitable form of attack that is spreading at an alarming rate. Recent reports indicate there is a ransomware attack every 14 seconds. Unfortunately, financial institutions are prime targets. Make no mistake, your institution is at risk. Once even a single victim's computer is infected, ransomware can expand and hold an entire organization hostage. An attack can cause downtime, data loss and possible intellectual property theft, bringing your organization to its knees. The good news is you can tailor your cybersecurity defenses to put you in the best possible position to limit your institution's exposure to the risk of serious cyberattacks.

What Every Financial Institution Should Know About Cybersecurity Preparedness

Cyber events require an organized response. When an attack happens, how you respond and how quickly you react can greatly influence the impact of the attack on your organization, finances and reputation. Cybersecurity events are not resolved in a vacuum. Resolution often requires a joint effort between technical and non-technical teams in order to address all facets of risk posed to the organization.

During a cybersecurity event, time is of the essence with risk and liability the organization faces increasing by the minute. Preparing for these types of events is one of the best ways to streamline response and reduce risk.

Has Compliance Caught up With Security?

We know compliance has never really been a good measure of real security. There is a discrepancy between the inadequate understanding of cybersecurity and point-in-time reports versus real-time visibility, awareness and plan to contain attacks. This disparity has always been clear to CISOs and IT security professionals, but measures have never been taken to better align compliance with security.  Is this finally changing? 

During this webinar, we will discuss the current state of cybersecurity regulations and what the future regulatory landscape is going to look like. We will also explore specific new mandates, what they mean in the real-word and what the financial services industry is doing to respond.


Tales From the Dark Web

Cybercriminals are well-funded, organized and increasingly sophisticated, leveraging dark web chat forums and government-grade software tools. Few know this better than former CTO and Senior Special Agent of the FBI's Cyber Division, Milan Patel. Milan has seen those cyberattacks firsthand and has led numerous high-profile cyber investigations.

During this webinar Milan, along with Fiserv security consultant, Nayan Patel, will share these tales and the cybersecurity trends every financial institution needs to know to combat the evolving threat landscape.
