Why Should you Attend
On September 15, 2015, the Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations (OCIE) issued the 2015 Cyber security Examination Initiatives. One of those initiatives relates to how financial firms are conducting due diligence reviews of their Vendors. Many firms are not prepared to conduct this type of due diligence on the firms they partner with. Many of the third party vendors, such as the firm's CPAs, program providers and outsourced IT firms may not even realize they are subject to this type of scrutiny from their clients, or even understand how to answer their questions. With cyber security and privacy Issues being an on-going area of concern for all areas of finance, the third party vendor and risk assessment will be a focus of regulatory exams as well as a significant business process for years to come.
