Date: 21st April, 2016 Time: 06:00 pm - 08:30 pm
Responding to Financial Crime, Increasing Cyber Security

Experts from PwC, Fieldfisher, BNY Mellon and Origone delivered a seminar on financial crime and cyber security at our evening seminar on 21 April.

Andrew Clark and David Choi, both Partners in PwC's Financial Services Risk and Regulations Practice, addressed the increasing pressure that banks are facing from regulators as they try to respond effectively to threats from financial criminals, and the technological solutions that are available to banks, particularly in their dealings with high risk clients and correspondent banking relationships. Their presentation is attached below.

Antonis Patrikios, a Partner in the Privacy, Security and Information Law Group at Fieldfisher described the changing legal requirements on cyber and data security, and the issue of 'mandatory breach notification'.

Dan Crisp, the Global Chief Information Risk Officer and Head of Technology Compliance  at BNY Mellon, described a range of technical responses that banks are using in the face of ever greater cyber threats.

Jonathan Partouche, the CEO of Origone, outlined the latest cyber threats that his firm is seeing, and some of the technological solutions that his firm offers in response. His presentation, which is attached below, shows examples from the 'dark web' of criminals trying to acquire confidential information that they can use to steal from or defraud clients.

The seminar was followed by a buffet dinner that enabled participants to mix with the speakers and raise individual issues and questions.
