Bankers will explore how to assess the efficacy of their threat and vulnerability programs, and will learn practical, actionable steps they can take to determine if a sound risk management process is in place, especially against the backdrop of escalating threats and changing regulatory viewpoints. Hernandez will cover how to take corrective actions if necessary, help bankers understand where threats originate and how to combat them, and share cybersecurity predictions for 2018.
