Why attend

The financial sector has a well-deserved reputation for being ahead of the curve on cybersecurity - but being on the cutting edge isn't easy, and its maturity is down to necessity.

AKJ Associates has been hosting high-level, content-driven cybersecurity conferences all over the world for 20 years. Over that time, we've met and worked with thousands of key security, fraud and compliance stakeholders within the global financial sector. We know the community, and we know its challenges.

The inaugural edition of Securing Financial Services, held as an entirely virtual conference under Chatham House rules in 2020, was a great success, and we are looking forward to returning for our second edition!

Join us at this virtual conference to:

Stay up-to-date with the latest developments 

The security landscape has always been fast-changing, and the financial services were likely better prepared than most - but the current situation and particularly its impact on Cloud strategies is unprecedented. Our speakers will be sharing insights into the strategies and technologies which can be put in place to maintain high standards of security without compromising efficiency.

Find out how your peers in other organisations are meeting their goals

Hear from fellow experts within the sector about how they are addressing business priorities and operational objectives in order to reduce risk, protect data, ensure compliance and strengthen security posture - both in the short-term as we cope with the public health crisis, and in the long term as well.

Understand how 'best practice' is evolving and help drive the debate forward

Hear case studies that detail how security frameworks and methodologies are being applied in the real world to help lines of business and the board defend against threats, take advantage of new opportunities, increase productivity, enable agility and decrease cost.

Network and engage with your industry peers

Some of the most valuable insights come from discussions with colleagues in other areas of expertise or organisations structured differently, who can offer new perspectives on the challenges you face. The Securing Financial Services summit will feature a number of discussion formats to allow attendees to discuss their challenges, experiences and insights with fellow experts from various backgrounds, firm structures, and areas of expertise.

This event will feature expert speakers from financial services and the market's leading service suppliers to deliver:

  • Critical and unique insights that can inform the direction of business, technology and security strategy
  • Practical steps that can help assess exposure to, articulate and proactively mitigate the impacts of emerging risks
  • Examples of proven approaches that can ensure commercial objectives are met in a secure, compliant manner
  • Guidance on future issues and challenges to consider as part of the enterprise decision-making process
