About this Event

The IA “Cyber Resilience for Investment Management Forum” will bring together influential and highly experienced cyber security experts and Chief Information Security Officers from member firms to discuss the latest cyber challenges within the industry. This year’s forum will provide insights on how to strengthen your organisational response to the threats that are on the horizon.

Following the publication of the joint Bank of England, PRA and FCA Operational Resilience Discussion Paper and FCA Cyber, Technology & Resilience cross-sector survey findings, cyber and overall operational resilience has become an increasingly prominent focus of the Investment and Asset Management industry in the UK after recent high-profile cyber attacks and increased reliance on technology and outsourcing. Firms are now prioritising cyber resilience to ensure they are protected against internal and external threats.

Attending this event will provide you with insight into:

  • The regulatory focus on the importance of understanding and addressing cyber risk.
  • Industry practices to build cyber resilience.
  • The IA’s Cyber Resilience Work Plan.

Who should attend?

This event will bring together senior figures from across the industry and provide opportunity to explore key cyber resilience challenges investment management firms face.
