As the increasing number of high profile cyber breaches demonstrates, it is critical for asset management firms to have strong IT security capabilities, such as cyber security protocols and testing, integrated into the firm’s systems and operations. Bridging the gap between operational risk and cyber security is one of the key areas of development. This panel will outline key cyber security requirements, particularly what regulators are looking for in their examinations, and what practical steps buy side firms can take to integrate data security and cyber resiliency into operational risk. The panel will speak about cyber related key risk indicators, and touch cyber security insurance.
