SEC, FINRA, and CFTC Zero in on Cybersecurity — How You Can Prepare

12 November 2015 Web Conference Past Event
Please join Foley Partners Stephen P. Bedell, Kathryn M. Trkla, and Aaron K. Tantleff for a web conference entitled, SEC, FINRA, and CFTC Zero in on Cybersecurity — How You Can Prepare.

With threats coming from a variety of increasingly sophisticated attackers, cybersecurity is — and will remain — a key area of focus for regulators. On September 15, the SEC’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations* (OCIE) issued new guidance outlining areas of cybersecurity risk to be addressed by registered broker-dealers and investment advisors in their systems and procedures.

This web conference will include topics such as:

  • Cybersecurity risk alert — summary of key issues 
  • Impact on broker-dealers and investment advisors 
  • How the SEC will examine firms for compliance, and the key controls and procedures the OCIE is looking for 
  • R.T. Jones Capital Equities Management, Inc. case 
  • NFA’s new Interpretative Notice Regarding Information Systems Security Program — Cybersecurity, and what it might mean to you 
  • Steps you can take to safeguard your firm’s data 
  • Why having an air-tight compliance strategy is crucial

There is no cost to participate in this web conference, but advance registration is required. For more information, please contact Brook Radford at
