Cyber Liability Preparedness for Asset Managers (Webinar)
US asset managers have been under stealthy attack from cyber-criminals intent on intercepting trading strategies in order to profit from front-running and other illicit maneuvers.
That hidden cyber-crime trend was highlighted last week when an unnamed US-based hedge fund was reported to have been hacked and its stream of high-speed trade data intercepted by cyber-criminals. They, in turn, apparently used the data to make their own trades first. Given this trend, it is not surprising that the SEC Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations announced that its 2014 Examination Priorities will include a focus on cybersecurity preparedness.
In the wake of the above exam initiatives and these alarming breaches, do you feel confident about your firm's approach to cybersecurity?
Please join Willis, Eze Castle Integration and Pillsbury Winthrop and Shaw on Thursday, July 17th at 12 p.m. EST as we discuss practical advice around how investment firms can prepare for the SEC cybersecurity exam questions. Can firms effectively use technology to shore up their defenses and how does cyber liability insurance work?
