Austin AFP February Meeting     


Topic: Cyber Risk Mitigation for the Financial Services Industry (Banks and Credit Unions)

Financial services institutions require a cybersecurity strategy regardless of size to counteract the growing threat of digital cyber risk. In the face of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, a comprehensive plan is essential to safeguard sensitive financial data, prevent unauthorized access, and maintain transaction integrity. Proactive cybersecurity measures not only shield clients' assets but also preserve the institution's reputation. By addressing potential risks, a well-defined plan establishes resilience, fostering customer trust, ensuring regulatory compliance, and sustaining the stability and security of the financial system.
