FINANCE   DO NOT MISS SESSION GISEC MAINSTAGE LIVE HACK DEMO: Ethan Hunt on a Budget
Identity Verification Providers (IVPs) are an essential piece of many financial workstreams for KYC/AML. IVPs are also prevalent for age-gating, account recovery, and limiting account creation. The reduction of customer friction in this space leads to corner-cutting; usability and support of these services outweighs the need for a watertight product. In this talk, I will demonstrate how, with around $800 US, it is possible to defeat all of the compensating controls on modern IVPs.

FINANCE   “Lets Risk it” GISEC MAINSTAGE Multi millions spent each year by the security industry yet the outlook for 2024 and beyond continues to worsen.

What’s the problem, where are we going wrong? Are we focusing on the right things, are we assuring our risks are understood and managed effectively? Are we learning and improving or stood still? This presentation puts the introspective lens on the industry to provide thoughts and answers.
Why do we continuing to fall victim to similar attacks?
Are we overly focused on compliance to the detriment of effective risk management?
Are we compliant but not secure?

Do we over complicate things?

Ransomware Attacks - A growing inconvenience in the financial sector.
Financial organizations shelled out an average of $2.23 million to recover fully after a ransomware attack. Ransomware attacks on financial services increased from 55% in 2022 to 64% in 2023. The topic is old, but these attacks are still prevalent and growing even more. The finance industry was the seventh most targeted sector for ransomware attacks during the first half of 2023. The side implications of the attacks are much higher than the attack itself.
