The New Statesman’s 4th annual Cyber Security in Financial Services conference is back to take place on the 23 -24 November 2021.
Whilst we eagerly await a return to live events and networking, the health and wellbeing of all involved must remain our priority, so considering the ongoing developments and concerns around the pandemic, the conference will return in 2021 as a hybrid event.
The pressure is on the financial sector supporting business in the ‘return to normal’ or the ‘new normal’ as well as handling this transition themselves. Banks must remain competitive amid digital transformation and the recent explosion in cyber-crime, not only whilst upholding the strongest information security systems but also while adapting to the impact of the pandemic and Brexit. Additionally, the complications of tight data regulations continue to evolve, as well as the sector opening to challengers. The New Statesman Cyber Security in Financial Services programme will address these challenges, opportunities and more that the sector faces whilst maintaining its cyber resilience.
The conference presents the opportunity to showcase your organisation and engage with influential decision-makers. Attendees can share ideas, innovations, initiatives and take part in virtual chats and private 1-2-1 conversations. There will also be the opportunity to engage with presentations on the main stage, and in Q&As with the speakers and sponsors.
Thought leaders and senior figures will present throughout the day to examine current regulations, key trends, and developments.
