Banks are confronting a perfect storm of changing consumer preferences, evolving employee demographics, and technological disruption that accelerates with each passing quarter. Upstart fintech companies, evolving millennial consumer and business behaviors, and a shifting regulatory framework present both challenges and opportunities that threaten to unravel the banks that are unprepared but supercharge those that are nimble and well situated to take advantage of this complicated environment.
Managing cybersecurity and privacy risks supports new business opportunities. To help enable executives to better manage cybersecurity, this presentation will cover key topics such as threat trends and risk landscapes, cybersecurity governance, regulatory requirements, board reporting, cybersecurity metrics and key risk indicators, and managing M&A risks. Discover key cybersecurity takeaways and participate in an interactive Q&A session on cybersecurity concerns.
Chief Economist Dr. Lindsey Piegza will look at the pace of the economic recovery and what it means going forward for overall growth, interest rates, and monetary policy. She will cover macro-economic trends in consumer behaviors and in the manufacturing sector in addition to new Federal Reserve policy initiatives and potential economic effects of these changes.
