Risks, Threats and Preparedness: Part I of the SANS Financial Services Survey

  • Wednesday, 26 Mar 2014 1:00PM EDT (26 Mar 2014 17:00 UTC)
  • Speakers: G. Mark Hardy, John Pescatore, Jack Daniel, Ed Dembowski, Scott Gordon

John Pescatore moderates this exciting survey webcast series. In this Part I webcast, SANS will share what types of attacks industry participants are suffering from and how prepared they feel they are to fend off attacks. Hint: Financial institutions are not as prepared as we thought they'd be. Only 16% felt very prepared to fend off attacks against financial accounts.

Of those that were able to quantify attacks on their organization, 44% suffered direct loss against impacted financial accounts, and an additional 36% said they had experienced direct losses due to denial of service interrupting their business.

Attend this webcast and learn what types of attacks are succeeding, their effects and their regulatory impact. In our Part II webcast, held March 27 at 1 PM EDT, we will go over the second half of the survey results and cover drivers for security programs and wish lists for strengthening those programs.
