Course description

Cyber-Security for FCA Regulated Firms

The latest disclosures about serious cyber security breaches affecting UK financial institutions and their customers have emphasized the scale of the threat. Yet it is estimated only 1 in 5 firms communicate effectively with executive management about cyber-attacks, weak cyber-security features repeatedly in FCA disciplinary cases and Boards continue to devote insufficient time and resources to this critical issue. The implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has added an additional layer of complexity and potential risk.

The FCA rules, guidance and ‘standards’ for cyber-security are still vague and principles-based, despite the increasing sophistication, volume and variety of cyber-attacks affecting regulated firms. Adding to the challenge are the different standards and requirements in the US and Europe, which need to be navigated by firms whose activities are conducted cross-border.

This practical course is designed primarily forCompliance,RiskandLegalprofessionals in small to medium sized regulated firms who number cyber-security among their responsibilities. It will also be of value toITspecialists who are new to cyber-security in a FCA regulated environment. It will help you keep up to date with developing best practice and the evolving rules, guidance and standards in this fast changing and increasingly important area of business and regulatory risk.

Specifically, attending will help you:

  1. Review the impact of regulatory developments and priorities concerning cyber-security, with a particular emphasis on what can be learned from market leading developments in the USA
  2. Update and refresh your knowledge of the current threat landscape and regulatory requirements
  3. Assess the appropriateness of your governance arrangements for managing cyber-security risk
  4. Understand the effectiveness of a well-constructed risk assessment
  5. Audit the effectiveness of your cyber-security controls
  6. Understand how meeting the requirements will affect your business and client interactions
  7. Consider how you can evidence the effectiveness of your cyber-security arrangements
