FIBA, an international center for financial excellence, will host its 31st Annual Financial Security Conference in Miami on October 3 and 4, 2016. In partnership with FELABAN (Federación Latinoamericana de Bancos), the leading financial security conference attracts more than 600 industry leaders from 45 countries, facilitating knowledge exchange through targeted panel discussions, break-out sessions, live cyber attack simulations and continuing education credits.
Former New York City Mayor, Rudolph W. Giuliani, joins this year’s CELAES conference as a keynote speaker. During the general session on Monday, October 3, he will kick off discussions around why the financial services industry has become one of the preferred targets of cyber crime. Specifically, he will focus on the preventative measures that can be taken to control access to systems, protect data on those systems, and educate employees on sound cyber security practices.
In addition to Giuliani, representatives from leading Fortune 500 companies like Visa Inc., Barclays, Bank of America, IBM and Microsoft will educate participants on emerging threats and best practices to proactively defend against increasingly sophisticated adversaries.
Boasting strong partnerships with regulators, policy makers and members from more than 18 countries, FIBA’s 31st Annual Financial Security Conference is the leading event of its kind working to enhance information-sharing and collaboration across banking and non-banking institutions for the common goal of combating cyber crime.
