Join MHA, Baker Tilly and a leading financial services professional, Alex Shapland to discuss the cyber risks that are facing the banking sector today.


This special fireside chat webinar will see our panel of specialists talking about the critical cyber concerns for the industry while providing considerations around key cyber security measures.

In today’s world, the banking sector operates on exclusively digital platforms. This naturally puts the sector at high risk from any form of cyber-attack or IT system failure. In addition, a number of firms do not operate on a single, common IT platform, increasing the overall risk of a cyber event causing debilitating effects to both the IT infrastructure and the company’s finances. This webinar sets out to provide insight around the risks faced and how businesses in this space can become more resilient to such risks.
