PARIS, FRANCE, October 18, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Linedata, the global solutions provider dedicated to the investment management and credit industries, is pleased to announce that Ray Pompon has been selected as a speaker at the ELFA Annual Conference to address cyber-security issues. The session is entitled "Cyber-Security: How Financial Institutions Can Withstand the New Reality" and is scheduled for Monday, October 24th at 11:00 a.m.
The scale and frequency of cyber attacks on financial institutions is enough to take anyone by surprise. Even amidst a number of high profile attacks on global organizations, businesses and governments, there are still millions which go unreported. Recent research suggests that over 317 million pieces of malicious software were created in 2014: a number which will only continue to rise.
These attacks take a number of forms and the effects can range from inconvenient to disastrous for a business. Perhaps of greatest concern to most companies are those attacks which seek to exploit security vulnerabilities in order to access sensitive data, especially that belonging to customers. In the hands of cyber criminals, this stolen data can be used to commit financial fraud, identity theft and extortion.
Ray is also the author of a newly released booked entitled, "IT Security Risk Control Management: An Audit Preparation Plan".
