Financial services companies are the #1 target for cyberattacks. According to the Verizon 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report, 62% of data exposed in breaches comes from the financial services industry. Why? Because these institutions hold a treasure trove of customer information. And financial services companies are 300 times more likely to experience a cyberattack compared with other sectors.

In this time of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, how can security leaders of financial institutions best protect customer data, business assets, and access to essential financial services from cybercriminals?

In a casual, conversational virtual roundtable, Semperis leaders and financial services security experts will discuss current security and identity management challenges facing financial institutions.

Attendees are eligible to receive 1 CPE credit.
