Financial Services to Host Webinar to Plan for Coronavirus Response

The Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC), in conjunction with CUNA and other financial trade organizations, will host a webinar-based exercise Thursday, March 12 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.

The goal of this exercise is to give institutions an opportunity to practice and adapt their technology and cybersecurity resiliency plans for large-scale, work-from-home scenarios in the event they are quickly needed. During the webinar, subject matter experts will provide insights on each of the five topics as the basis of discussion. Each topic will include a limited set of pre-defined questions designed to elicit key information. Additionally, certain benchmarking data will also be gathered from participants via a survey tool for real-time feedback ending with a Q&A.


Topic 1: Country/local escalation levels, led by Brian Hansen, executive director, FS-ISAC APAC and Greg Gist, VP exercise programs, FS-ISAC
Topic 2: Technology for widescale work-from-home, led by Amanda Cody, chief information security officer, FS-ISAC
Topic 3: Regulatory issues and business challenges of work-from-home, led by Tom Wagner, managing director, Financial Services Operations, SIFMA
Topic 4: Human capital challenges, led by Hansen and Amy Boerner, director, Human Resources, FS-ISAC
Topic 5: Second-wave planning, led by Gist.
