Protecting yourself against the latest threats in ransomware

14:10 – 14:40 GMT

Leveraging AI technologies to prevent, detect and respond to attacks

AI will be a powerful tool for both attackers and cybersecurity professionals but if deployed correctly it can future proof your protective mechanisms. This session looks at how AI in cybersecurity can work in practice and what is needed to maximise its value.


14:50 – 15:20 GMT

Crisis planning: what to do when a breach occurs

Much focus is placed on the protocols and solutions which protect financial institutions from security attacks and breaches, but what about when an unfortunate attack does take place? This panel discussion will take a look at the protocols and responses of financial institutions when attacks and breaches do take place, how this response can be improved and why the recovery from an attack is just as important as the protection in place to prevent them.


15:30 – 16:00 GMT

Creating a culture of cybersecurity in your organisation

When it comes to protecting your organisation from malicious attacks, driving the right behaviours in your people is just as important as having the right technology. Too often though, cybersecurity measures are treated as a chore, with poor compliance exposing organisations to risk. What are the keys to embedding security and preparedness in your culture?
