Cyber Security Threat Looms: How Money Managers Can Protect Themselves

CFA Society New York presents a broad range of cyber-threats, and how to avoid them, at “The Cyber Security Threat and How Money Managers Can Protect Themselves” event.

On Tuesday, June 27th, join CFA Society New York—formerly known as CFA Society New York (CFANY)—for “The Cyber Security Threat and How Money Managers Can Protect Themselves.”

This event, hosted by CFA Society New York’s Business Management Group, will explore a critical issue facing money managers–cyber security–and what they can do to protect themselves.

The discussion will be led by subject-matter experts from the FBI, DTCC, technology firms, compliance specialists and money managers.

“Cyber-risk presents money managers, and the overall financial system, with tremendous challenges from a financial, regulatory and reputation standpoint,” said Robert Akeson, Chief Operating Officer of Mirae Asset Securities (USA) Inc. “CFA Society New York has assembled a group of experts who will speak to the broad scope of these challenges and offer achievable solutions.”

This event will help members and others to understand the severity of the cyber-security threat and take steps to prepare for it.

“Cyber security can no longer be considered a distraction by management, or merely relegated to the IT department,” said Arthur Vaccarino, Chief Technology Officer of IONIC Capital Management LLC. “It’s the responsibility of every person in the firm to take an active role in mitigating the risk.”

Money managers will be pointed toward the most crucial potential concerns and what steps they can take to protect themselves.

“While the onslaught of cyber-attacks continues to adversely affect the financial services industry with almost no end in sight,” said Michael Brice, Principal of BW Cyber Services. “I’m confident that money managers can remediate the most pertinent of these risks that either affect their business now or will in the very near future.”
