The first day of EBF’s Innovation & Cyber Thursdays is devoted to cyber security and resilience, the basis underlying every field of digital innovation. Taking place during the European Cyber Security Month and building upon the previous annual editions of the (physical) EBF Cybersecurity Conference, this year’s digital event aims to provide to explore the rapidly evolving cyber trends and challenges for banks.
As Covid-19 has substantially affected our society and accelerated digitalization in every field of the economy, lessons learned from the pandemic crisis and its impact on the resilience of the banking sector will be among the points of focus of the day. Additionally, with new EU legislative developments and international initiatives underway in the field of digital operational resilience for financial institutions, policy-makers, field experts from banks and international stakeholders will share their insights on how to better address the ICT risks of an increasingly interdependent financial ecosystem. The European and international priorities and proposals for facilitating efficient and timely cyber info sharing among market participants, an important tool in identifying and mitigating cyber threats, will be another subject of the day.
