The cloud offers economic, competitive and collaborative benefits to financial services. But the sensitive and regulated data kept by financial services requires heightened security measure. In this session, discuss the challenges and benefits of moving to the cloud. Look at how the changing threat landscape creates risks to traditional security practices. Examine current security trends affecting financial services and approaches to protecting sensitive data:
• Prioritizing and overcoming challenges to the cloud
• Embracing the cloud with full visibility while managing shadow IT
• Identifying gaps and ensuring regulatory compliance through the cloud
The parade of discussions regarding the Business Impact Analysis and Business Impact Assessment (collectively, the BIA) continue to play out across Business Continuity, Risk and Security industry events, discussion boards, articles, blogs, etc. Discussion topics include streamlining, mechanizing and integrating the BIA with the Risk Assessment, and eliminating the BIA altogether as proposed by select new BCM and Security methodologies. This discussion will look at the necessary convergence and major expansion of the BIA across multiple risk disciplines supporting a fundamental business intelligence and requirements driven contribution to all of these risk domains, supporting Information Security, Data Privacy, Incident Management and Operational Risk (by example).
Importantly, the BIAs that are performed today by standalone BCM teams are increasingly becoming out of date and insufficient as business continuity, technology operations and the business are called upon to address recovery from cyber-attacks.
