    Cybercrime’s cost to the global economy in 2016 has been cited at $450bn with Asian companies accounting for more than $81bn. ASEAN has recently witnessed several high profile cyber-attacks including infrastructure attacks, denial-of-service attacks and other issues around the protection of data.

    Cyber is business and business is cyber. More than 70% of banking and capital market CEOs identify cyber insecurity as a threat to their growth. Financial Services firms are now being hit by security incidents 300 times more frequently than businesses in other industries and 33% of all lure stage attacks target the financial services industry.

    This 1-day programme will examine how banks’ response to cybercrime has rapidly evolved from the focus on a single malicious agent, or single points of attack to pivotal innovations in machine learning and artificial intelligence commanding unprecedented and in some cases, unlimited budgets. Participants will learn how banks are designing emergent strategies to improve relentlessly, measured by costs, efficacy and reductions in risk. Both traditional attack methods and advanced emergent attack methods which model corporate hierarchies will also be learnt.

  • Programme Outline
    Morning Session
    • Profiles the cyber security threat landscape, reviewing global and regional cyber-attack trends in cyber-attacks in EMEA, APAC ASEAN & MENA
    • Cyber risks to the banking sector arising from consumer led, context driven mobile first economies are assessed including public and private cloud, banking API infrastructures, payment infrastructures, consumer behaviour, counterparties and suppliers, and legacy systems 
    • After a study of recent prolific cyber-attacks considering banks, legislators and regulators responses, participants map a cyber-attack scenario deploying traditional and advanced persistent threats. They consider the attacks’ impact on governance, review security practices, establish clear metrics and formulate a cyber-attack information sharing response.
    Learning Outcomes
    • Threat landscape: Recognise current threat levels and distinguish the severity of emerging threats 
    • Measure operational discipline: Review security practices, patch, and control access points to network systems, applications, functions and data 
    • Test security effectiveness: Establish clear metrics. Use them to validate and improve security practices.
    Afternoon Session
    • Advances in security automation are analysed and their key benefits profiled including integrating diverse products, reducing detection-to-response time and raising the productivity of talented security engineers who constitute a scarce resource
    • Cutting edge research and development in human led artificial intelligence defences are considered 
    • Advanced defensive capabilities to detect and counter evolving and mutating threats inside networks are detailed in a series of case studies from leading artificial intelligence labs 
    • Participants map a genuinely global level risk mitigation engagement recognising that, whilst banks have developed some of the most sophisticated risk mitigation capabilities, threats are evolving rapidly and often have international dimensions
    Learning Outcomes
    • Security Automation: Identify reductions in detection-to-response time & increase cost efficiencies in deploying skilled engineers
    • Innovation in human led artificial intelligence: Understand the key operating principles of emergent human led artificial intelligence defences. Monitor emergent global threats and the applications of technologies outside of the banking sector to banking cybersecurity.
  • Methodology
    The programme features lecture discussions to introduce live cybersecurity data and concepts. These are complemented by experiential learning with threat and response mapping methodologies focused on measuring costs, efficacy and reducing risk. Participants will be able to develop an understanding of cyber security innovation whilst managing banks' regulatory compliance and investment risk in project based scenarios.
