Assessing Cyber Resilience

To be held on Thursday, September 20, 2018

With support from the CISI


  • Daniel Nunn (FCA)

  • Stephen Bonner (Deloitte)

  • Ryan Dodd (Cyberhedge)



Cyber resilience is a hot button topic: the ECB has published its ‘European Framework for Threat Intelligence-based Ethical Red Teaming’ (“TIBER”); the BoE has announced an intent to conduct cyber stress testing; the industry has its own initiatives in hand, such as the London Office for Rapid Cybersecurity Advancement to fund up-and-coming Infosec firms; and the FCA and BoE have a joint consultation underway entitled Building the UK financial sector’s operational resilience.

Plenty to chew on. To discuss the cyber landscape from the regulators’ perspective (and what is keeping them up at nights) we are delighted to welcome Daniel Nunn. Daniel is the Technical Lead for Technology Resilience and Cyber at the FCA, responsible for leading the Authority’s cyber approach to the 58,000 firms it supervises and coordinating its strategy with the other financial authorities. He knows his onions.

But how can senior managers and external investors be confident that firms are doing a good job on cybersecurity? And what levers can they pull to ensure their firms stay ahead of the curve?

To kick off the response to Daniel, and to share their own thoughts on what managers and investors can be doing, we are pleased to welcome:

  • Stephen Bonner, partner in Deloitte’s Cyber Risk Services practice. Stephen has over twenty years of FS cyber experience (most recently as head of information risk for Barclays), and has spent the last six years as a partner at major cyber resilience consulting practices. He is a multiple award winner and member of the Infosecurity Europe Hall of Fame.
  • Ryan Dodd, founder and CEO of Cyberhedge, which specialises in quantitatively evaluating how cyber risks can impact on shareholder value. Ryan has over a decade’s experience in developing proprietary risk models and allocating risk as a fund manager and institutional investor, and is a contributor to CNBC.

So, come and share your own thoughts/concerns/hopes. Just let us know by emailing or by phoning us on 020 7621 1056. As usual, there will be wine and sandwiches.

Sincerely yours,

Andrew Hilton
