Session Descriptions

A Vision for Your Bank

Trent Fleming | CEO, Trent Fleming Consulting

While the day-to-day pressures of managing balance sheets and regulatory requirements seem overwhelming, smart banks sense that the weight of competitive pressures make it even more important to develop and execute on strategies that will ensure their success. This session will look at emerging trends in banking products and services, and provide keen insight into developing the infrastructure, tools, and staff needed to deliver them successfully.

E is for Exposure: Appendix E & Controlling Mobile Services Risk

Michael Berman | CEO, Ncontracts

Financial institutions don’t have complete control of the mobile channel. App developers, mobile network operators, device manufacturers, specialized security firms and other non-financial third-party providers all play a role making risk management critical.

This session will guide you through the FFIEC’s Appendix E: Mobile Financial Services to help you (1) Recognize the role third-party providers play in mobile financial services, (2) Devise strategies to identify, measure and mitigate the risks presented by the mobile channel, (3) Discover the role contracts play in mitigating third-party risk, (4) Address compliance and reputation risk, and (5) Understand the importance of the board and management in enterprise-wide risk management.

Incident Response Planning and Execution

John Coleman | EVP, Chief Information Officer, Grandpoint Bank

This panel will focus on three areas of incident response:

  • The technical aspects of IR (i.e., steps following a breach)
  • Vendor contracts and retainer agreements for cyber vendors
  • Cyber insurance: preparing for what types of coverage your institution may require and what is most common; and, how to make the most of those coverages.

Designing an Effective Business Continuity Plan Testing Program

Tracy Hall, MBPC | IT Assurance Manager, Wolf & Company

There is often confusion as to how to develop a multi-year business continuity plan testing program. Financial institutions are overwhelmed with putting a program in place. Using your Business Impact Analysis (BIA) can define what the testing program should be without adding unnecessary complexity and negatively impacting efficiency. Attendees of this presentation will learn:

  • How to use your BIA to inform your multi-year BCP testing plan
  • What components should be included and what could be left out
  • Where to start to get the most effective and manageable program
  • How to satisfy requirements for incorporating risk assessment results into your test plan

Top Effective Cybersecurity Controls

Chris Akenson, CISSP | TraceSecurity

This session will review priority cybersecurity technical controls and will explain why they are effective in reducing cybersecurity threats.

FinTech and RegTech: Challenges and Opportunities

Walt Mix | Managing Director & Financial Services Practice Group Leader, Berkeley Research Group

R. William Wilson | President & Chief Executive Officer, California Business Bank

R. Russell Meyer | Co-Founder, The Meyer Shaffer Company LLC

Shirish Netke | President & CEO, Amberoon

The session will provide practical perspectives from practitioners and experts.

Cybersecurity & Vendor Management: Don’t Put Your Institution Next in Line for a Cyber Attack

Michael Berman | CEO, Ncontracts

With higher regulatory expectations regarding cybersecurity and vendor management, banks have more risks to manage than ever before. This session will discuss the impact of breaches on financial institutions along with regulatory mandates that hold your executive and board responsible for your vendors’ cybersecurity and disaster recovery resiliency. This session will also touch on the requirements of the FFIEC’s Cybersecurity Assessment Tool and provided information on how the FFIEC, OCC, FDIC and Fed mandates overlap regarding vendor management.

Dodd-Frank Update

Walt Mix | Managing Director & Financial Services Practice Group Leader, Berkeley Research Group

Aligning ERM Governance with Risk App Statements

Michael Cohn, CPA, CISA, CGEIT | Director, WolfPAC Solutions

Select your asset category and dig deep into the elements of a successful enterprise risk management governance structure as it aligns with your risk appetite statement. Hear leading practices surrounding risk ownership, accountabilities, controls, measuring, monitoring and reporting. In addition, you will walk away from this deep dive knowing the difference between risk appetite and risk tolerance.

Enterprise Risk Management

Carlos Pereira | PwC

This session will cover the risk assessment process and will loop it in with the audit’s validation of operating effectiveness over the controls identified via the ERM’s risk assessments.

The Evolving Cyber Threat

Jensen Penalosa | Special Agent, Federal Bureau of Investigation – Cyber Squad

The Cyber threat has evolved over the years and it is important to understand our adversaries and their motivation. From organized cyber gangs looking to make a profit to nation-states who are trying to gather our secrets, Cyber threat actors are getting better at what they do and we need to evolve with them. This presentation covers various actor types and how the FBI is adapting to the threat. Collaboration is key and will make the difference as we move forward to combat various Cyber threat actors.
