Aspects of cybersecurity to prioritize and defend against evolving cyber threats

Managers and employees must have a strong understanding of what cybersecurity is and how to stay ahead of risks to reduce exposure to attacks. In this course, we explore the techniques and motivations behind common cyber-attacks to equip you with the skills and awareness to protect companies and their employees, clients, and shareholders from a host of cyber threats, such as malware, ransomware, spoofing, social engineering, remote access, viruses, trojans, DDOS, phishing, business email compromise, and more. Today’s cyber threats are increasingly advanced and complex. Therefore, it is more important than ever for companies to maintain an active effort to understand and mitigate the probability of such breaches.

Responsibilities and procedures for reporting and responding to Security Incidents

Exchange Analytics has developed this course with best practices for employees and firms in mind with specific requirements for Financial Services to drive regulatory compliance and be well-versed in industry-specific requirements governing the financial sector. For a holistic approach to Enterprise Risk Management, the participation of all employees in developing a strong understanding of cybersecurity threats is essential. In this course, we’ll cover how to stay in compliance with regulations around FINRA, SOX, GLBA, SEC, CFTC, NFA, and more. We’re leveraging years of real-world expertise to help firms align with control standards such as NIST, ISO and FFIEC.

Grow your expertise in protecting customer data from cybercriminals

The stakes are especially high for companies that retain customer consumers as cybercriminals seek to exploit any vulnerability in security, technology, and protocols given the potential of gaining access to vital data and assets for monetary gain. Financial firms are the most popular target for cybercriminals with the vast majority of cybercrimes targeting financial data and personal information. Our authors have significant experience in managing compliance and regulatory requirements at financial institutions and interacted with federal regulators on compliance, risk, and examination matters.
