9:00 am - 9:40 am Integrating Emerging Technology in Financial Services

Fintech is disruptive technology within financial services that impacts how it operates including mobile payments, money transfers, fund raising and asset management.  This disruptive technology is changing what needs to be secured. Securing in an Internet of Things environment means a much wider attack surface with extra security challenges.

In this session examine:
•Eliminating time consuming and repetitive tasks
•Using machine learning to model user, device and network behaviors
•Expanding beyond rules and signatures to mitigate evolving attacks

10:15 am - 10:45 am Business Meetings

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

11:15 am - 12:00 pm Creative Solutions for the Skills Shortage- Developing Talent and Culture

Paul Raines - CISO, United Nations Development Programme
The number of security openings exceeds the number of people available to fill them.  A security culture needs to be embraced prior to technical security work.  Within the security industry there is a problem of empathy where the victims of the cyber security breaches are punished.  The whole world, which utilizes security systems, needs to be engaged to be effective. The true diversity of people who use the systems must be protected and represented.  This means the security teams needs to include the variety of cultures and thinking protected.  Clearly cyber criminals do not discriminate based on gender and strategies must be implemented to create and inform a growing, strategic workforce and pipeline.  In this session, explore efforts for achieving a truly diverse industry and ways to recruit and retain diverse talent including women and minorities.
In this session:
•Planning long term with staff development and culture awareness
•Widening talent searches outside of IT
•Creating and empowering cross-functional teams
