Cybersecurity Takes Center Stage at CELAES 2016

FIBA will host its 31st Annual Financial Security Conference in Miami on October 3 and 4, 2016. In partnership with FELABAN (Federación Latinoamericana de Bancos), the conference attracts more than 600 industry leaders from 45 countries, facilitating knowledge exchange through targeted panel discussions, break-out sessions, live simulations and continuing education credits. Industry’s senior security professionals will educate participants on emerging threats and best practices to proactively defend against increasingly sophisticated adversaries.    

“The staggering increase in information security breaches today is consequently putting our economy at risk of permanent damage,” said FIBA CEO, David Schwartz.  “It’s no longer enough for organizations to solely rely on the traditional defensive approach. Instead, companies need to strategize offensively, getting out in front of this rising problem, strengthening their cybersecurity posture.”

Former New York City Mayor, Rudolph W. Giuliani, joins this year’s CELAES conference as a keynote speaker. Serving as Global Chair of Greenberg Traurig Cybersecurity, Privacy and Crisis Management Practice and Founder of security consulting company, Giuliani Partners LLC, Giuliani brings decades of experience and expert knowledge of the cybersecurity space to this year’s event. During the general session on Monday, October 3, he will kick off discussions around why the financial services industry has become one of the preferred targets of cybercrime.  Specifically, he will focus on the preventative measures that can be taken to control access to systems, protect data on those systems, and educate employees on sound cybersecurity practices.

In addition to Giuliani as well as representatives from leading Fortune 500 companies like Visa Inc., Barclays, Bank of America, IBM and Microsoft, the following industry icons will be in attendance, providing insights on a variety of topics:

  • David Stelzl – Speaker, author, coach, High Tech Sales & Marketing Strategy, CISSP- will dive deep into his latest book, “Digital Money, The Executive’s Guide to Stopping the Greatest Transfer of Wealth in History – Your Data,” sharing the most common mistakes made by companies in regards to data security.
  • Andrés Gil – Partner, Cyber Risk Services, Enterprise Risk Services, Deloitte & Co S.A.- will explore how digitization is reshaping the concept of security and privacy in the 24/7 connected world in which we live.
  • Sergio Piñon – Senior VP, Director of Security, Ocean Bank- will discuss the vulnerabilities of mobile phones, highlighting the role they play in bank’s transactional channels; detection and containment of threats and tools and processes to mitigate the risk.
