A joint advisory statement published in April by the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre and the US Department of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, shows that cyber criminals and advanced persistent threat (APT) groups are targeting individuals and organisations with a range of ransomware and malware. It is expected that the frequency and severity of COVID-19 related cyber-attacks will increase over the coming weeks and months.

Against this background, City & Financial Global is pleased to announce this virtual roundtable series.  The programme has been designed to address the key issues that have been identified as being of most concern to your organisation during this period of increased cybercrime activity. You will receive practical advice on how to prevent COVID-19 related and other malicious cyber activity and how to deal with the incidents if they have already happened.

Over the past year, the payments industry has been evolving and expanding, with digital payment services and transaction volumes growing across the globe. The competitive landscape is being redefined by the entry of non-traditional providers, the evolution of new solutions provided by financial institutions and the development of strategic alliances that cross traditional sectoral boundaries. Over and beyond this transformation, there will also be major convergence around: products and solutions linked to payments; technology platforms and clearing capabilities that will be increasingly global in nature and reach; and of the operation of global securities and currency markets. In addition, we are likely to see integration of regulatory regimes that today are still often fragmented.

To discuss these issues and more, City & Financial is running its professional virtual roundtable series on Payment Systems Regulations and Innovation, next 3-5 June. This series comprises five webinars, which will cover all aspects of payments innovations, including the regulatory framework, in the context of the new challenges brought on by the current global crisis.

Featured Testimonials

“We’ve worked with the C&F team on many conferences relating to accountability, the team here are exceptionally good at organising events. A broad and diverse mix of delegates and that’s of most interest because that’s why people come to conferences; to peer to peer network and talk, you have to have enough people of the right calibre in the room, and that’s what City & Financial do differently to other conference organisers”.
Carl Redfern, Compliance Director, Redland Business Solutions Ltd
“Interesting discussion around Brexit and the implications for the energy sector. I think it’s got a excellent range of speakers from academia, politicians as well as industry speakers, which helps getting that spread”.

“Also if you look at the delegate list, it’s great for networking to see the wide range of delegates from across the UK who are in attendance”.

Lawrence Slade, Chief Executive, Energy UK
“As ever with City week it’s a fantastic gathering of senior people from across the industry talking about the key issues that we need to deal with as practitioners looking at both where the opportunities for the industry are, what the challenges are that we need to meet, but also being able to talk to policy makers, with regulators and with others to share our experiences, our perspectives and our thoughts to look forward to the future”.
Miles Celic, Chief Executive Officer, TheCityUK
“It’s the largest Brexit conference I’ve seen for at least two years, and I think that it’s a very great mix of people; in terms of seniority and in terms of spread and geographically, because it’s not just people from London, some people are coming from outside (London)”.
Jonathan Herbst, Partner and Global Head of Financial Services, Norton Rose Fulbright
“I would like to say a massive thanks @cfconferences for pulling together so many experts for the event yesterday. Felt like the Glastonbury of Conduct with headline acts, great content and sell-out crowd. Plenty of content for us to go away and act on our journey to regain trust”.
Robert Longmuir, Client Governance, Aberdeen Standard Investments
“I think City & Financial events, certainly in the Brexit sphere are the go to event”.

“I can’t say very much about the other ones, because if I’m completely honest, I don’t go to any other ones, this is the go to conference each year”.
