COUNTDOWN

Nigeria is the largest economy in Africa with banking assets worth N42.68tr (£73.33bn, $92.72bn). There is also a considerable spend on ICT managed services including vendor procurement, this data isn’t publicly available but runs into hundreds of millions of naira. As Nigeria continues to diversify her economy and technologically transform, innovative businesses are not immune to cyber-attacks and data breaches. These include phishing attacks, malicious software embedded at payment interfaces, crypto jacking (victim’s computers to mine cryptocurrency) and ransomware attacks resulting in billions of Naira lost. Cyber Security Regulations and best practice have come to play a major part in driving security requirements being implemented by the anticipated conference audience. Regulations such as the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Cyber Security Framework and the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation (NDPR) have raised the importance of security and data privacy among Nigerian companies. Making cyber security a board room agenda item for Nigerian companies.

Introduction and overview of the Financial Services Cybersecurity Sector Profile


The Profile is a scalable and extensible assessment that financial institutions of all types can use for internal and external (i.e. third party) cyber risk management assessment and as a mechanism to evidence compliance with various regulatory frameworks globally. When surveyed two years ago, Chief Information Security Officers from financial institutions indicated that nearly 40% of their time, and their teams’ time, was spent reconciling various cybersecurity and regulatory frameworks. For financial institutions, if the Profile approach is implemented, accepted by regulators for use, and maintained, the benefits of focusing cybersecurity experts time on protecting global financial platforms, rather than compliance activity, will be significant. For an industry already burdened by a shortage of adequately skilled individuals, reducing this percentage by streamlining compliance is a tremendous benefit.

Panel Discussion - Importance of security awareness in the financial sector and different models


Business regularly run security awareness simulations on employees and create awareness campaigns for customers but evidence about their operational effectiveness is divisive. In addition the culture of fear it engenders can be counterproductive (shaming those who fail) leaving the security team overtaxed. We will explore security awareness training as a whole, discuss the effectiveness of simulation exercises as a key component and review alternate approaches that may have better results.

Presentation - Mitigating Cybersecurity risk in Digital Transformation


Financial inclusion requires digital transformation, cloud adoption and mobile which offer many advantages for innovation but means on-premise security architectures are being replaced. This potentially creates uncertainty of those learning new security architecture approaches with the introduction of new attack surfaces. How do cybersecurity leaders ensure they don't curb innovative drive and strategic business initiatives while at the same time ensuring the key tenants of a security regime remain robust and within risk appetite.
