State-of-the-Field Conference on Cyber Risk to Financial Stability
The Third State-of-the-Field Conference on Cyber Risk to Financial Stability will generate a robust discussion led by experts across the financial and cybersecurity fields and government, academic, and private sectors. Members of Columbia SIPA’s CRFS Project and partners at the Federal Reserve Bank of NY will serve as moderators of each panel. They will draw on CRFS’s research, publications, and lessons learned from previous workshops to guide the conversation.
The conference will begin on 28 April 2022 with a keynote by Eric Goldstein, Executive Assistant Director for Cybersecurity for the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. This will be followed by a panel discussion on “Geopolitical Cyber Risks to Financial Stability” which will consider the conditions ten years after Iran’s ‘Operation Ababil’. The day will conclude with a fireside chat with Phil Venables, the Chief Information Security Officer for Google Cloud.
On 29 April, the conversation will focus on industry perspectives, commencing with a keynote by Tammy Hornsby-Fink, the Chief Information Security Officer for the Federal Reserve System. This will be followed by panel discussion on “What Are We Learning?” and, “What Are We Doing?” when managing and mitigating cyber threats to financial stability.
