Managing Operational and Cyber Resiliency
To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set up for the delivery of our courses. Please note we therefore have a limited number of spaces available and these will be assigned on a first come, first accepted basis. We recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.
Today, cyber and operational resilience require an approach that goes beyond being just the concern of the information security group or operational risk management teams. Today, the preferred approach is a three-lines-of-defence model. The first line of defence is the business units and information security having the direct accountability for owning, understanding, and managing cyber risks. The second line of defence is the risk management team providing functional oversight and the third line is internal auditing,providing the assurance function - you are doing what you committed to do.
New threats will emerge from people, a widening attack surface, and enhanced communications. People will soon be easily tracked from their car, TV, or sneakers, making employees the easiest access point. The attack surface will dramatically expand with internet connectivitytouching everything from light bulbs and alarm systems to appliances andpacemakers - making them vulnerable to manipulation. Digital communicationwilladd additional functionality and controlbut also create new vulnerabilities. The next wavewill change digital data tocompromise its integrity so you no longer believe what you are seeing in your own system.
The course will focus on resilience and cyber wellness, including how the three lines of defence model will need to actively change to meet these new challenges. This includes: Adapting intelligence driven strategies, quantifying cyber security risks, and integrating the oversight of cyber security risk with operational risk and enterprise risk management. Financial institutions will need to change the role and reporting relationships of CISOs, facilitate tighter communication and collaboration between business partners and customers, and reduce central points of failure through new technologies. Innovation can help lead to more rapid identification of threats and faster and more efficient recovery processes using artificial intelligence. These cyber and operational risk initiatives can be backed up by creating security cultures and developing security by design within institutions.
