Monday, September 28, 2020, at 14.00 – 15.30 Vienna time (CEST)

To support our member countries in their efforts to deal with the economic consequences of the Corona pandemic, the JVI has launched a new webinar series.

The next webinar focusing on financial stability issues will take place on Monday, September 28, 2020, at 14.00 – 15.30 Vienna time (CEST). 

The topic of the webinar is:

Covid-19 – the Challenges to Cybersecurity 

Mr. Tamas Gaidosch, Senior Financial Sector Expert (IMF)
Gerald Dinca, IT Security Professional (Bank of Romania)

Based on recent special IMF notes, this webinar discusses the cybersecurity of remote work as a key challenge in the pandemic for both industry and regulators. Given the widespread shift to working remotely for a prolonged time and the inevitable vulnerabilities in this process, new and more cyberattacks have emerged and the trend is expected to continue. What are some of the exploited vulnerabilities and how are institutions targeted? How can supervisory authorities respond effectively and help the financial sector maintain and improve cyber resilience under these circumstances? Do authorities need to adapt regulations or change their approach to supervision? What are some lessons learnt so far? The webinar addresses these main questions aiming to explain in an accessible way often deeply technical issues that can make or break the cybersecurity of remote work.

The webinar will be moderated by Reiner Martin, Lead Economist (JVI)

Participants are encouraged to ask written questions to the presenters using the webinar’s chat forum.

The webinar will be held in English.
