On November 9, 2015, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Knowledge Bureau’s Distinguished Advisor Conference. The topic of my presentation was Cybersecurity in the Financial Industry. I set out the six elements of an effective cybersecurity plan. I described the sophistication and global dimensions of the cyber threat and the serious consequences of such an attack to firms and clients. The presentation also gave me an opportunity to explain the IIAC’s role in raising awareness and assisting dealer Member firms to put in place defenses to counter the cyber threat.
