The UK Financial Services Cyber Security Summit

The UK Financial Services Cyber Security Summit

15 July, 2014. America Square Conference Centre, London

Keynote Speakers include:

Karen Bradley MP, Minister for Modern Slavery and Organised Crime, Home Office; Ciaran Martin, Director General for Government and Industry Cyber Security, GCHQ and Andrew Gracie, Executive Director, Bank of England.

20% Discount for HSRC Members

Not only do individual financial institutions face a very real and present danger from cyber-attacks, the vulnerability of the infrastructure of the UK’s financial markets is also a major concern, since significant disruption of these markets could cause chaos to the wider economy, as well as to the reputation of the UK as a leading international financial centre.

This conference examines cyber security issues in the round, not only at the level of individual organisations, but more broadly in the context of their interrelationship with the main financial markets, such as the cash, derivatives, securities and fund management and insurance markets, since financial institutions need to understand how these markets will respond to cyber-attacks and what the implications will be for the organisations that participate in them.

The summit programme addresses the issues identified in the Bank of England’s “Waking Shark II” findings (their simulated cyber-attack exercise for banks), as well the areas that GCHQ identified as weaknesses for financial institutions that manage funds, such as asset managers and insurance companies. The programme is also very relevant for infrastructure providers, financial intermediaries and the advisory community.


The expert speaker panel will cover the following topics:

  • An update on the Government’s cyber-security strategy
  • The rapidly developing scope and nature of the threat to cyber-security
  • Conducting an effective risk assessment across the firm
  • The role of the regulators in relation to cyber-security
  • What constitutes compliance for regulated firms?
  • Legal initiatives relating to cyber-security and cyber-crime
  • Best practice cyber-security
  • Establishing effective mechanisms for sharing intelligence and lessons across the financial services industry
  • Availability of insurance solutions
  • Resilience of London’s infrastructure to cyber-attacks
  • Cyber-security issues in the cash markets
  • Countering cyber-crime in the derivatives markets
  • Protecting the securities markets from cyber-crime
  • Cyber-security in the fund management and insurance markets
