Seminar on cyber security and financial crime

We held an evening seminar on cyber security and financial crime on 14 March, at our offices in Upper Grosvenor Street. The event was sponsored by Mishcon de Reya and FTI Consulting. 

The speakers were:

Adam Epstein, Partner, Mishcon de Reya

Joe Hancock, Head of Cyber, Michcon de Reya

Paul Henninger, Senior Managing Director, FTI Consulting

Malcolm Bodey, Assistant Director, Standard Chartered Bank

The seminar was introduced and moderated by Simon Hills, Director of Prudential and Capital Risk at UK Finance.

The speakers provided practical examples of how banks, and especially medium sized banks, can realistically prepare for, and recover from, cyber attacks.They also considered regulatory expectations, and the extent to which banks of different sizes and with different business models need to address their cyber and financial crime challenges in different ways.

The seminar was followed by a buffet dinner. Photographs from the event can been seen on the Gallery page of this website.
