ACFE "Fraud and Cyber Security Panel Discussion" (September 27, 2017)

Financial institutions are tackling financial crimes daily, trying to keep up with the innovative technical methods criminals use. Fraud, theft and other bad acts are increasingly being perpetrated in Cyberspace, making security breaches not a matter of if, but when. How your business protects against Cyber crimes can make a difference if it is not sufficiently protected.

Please join the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners NY Chapter (NYCFE) and New York Metro InfraGard for a seminar on the significant obligations of companies in preventing and detecting frauds related to financial crimes hosted by Herrick, Feinstein LLP.

Our distinguished panel will offer best practices for building up your corporate defenses against financial crimes, including those perpetrated electronically.

They will talk about a wide range of related Cyber crime topics during the panel discussion, including:

  • How effective controls can manage fraud, money-laundering and other complex financial crimes
  • Why analyzing the financial patterns to detect these crimes is vital in preventing fraud
  • What detective methods are used that lead to investigations
  • Case studies investigated by law enforcement within the financial crimes unit
Our panel will include:
  • Moderator: Richard M. Morris, Partner; Information Governance Group; Herrick, Feinstein LLP

The panel will address an Incident Response scenario involving a complex computer intrusion, discuss each entity's role in the response process, and provide insight into the U.S. Government's priorities and objectives within the Cyber mission space.

The mission of the NY Metro Incident Management SIG is to support InfraGard's mission to protect critical infrastructure and preserve life in the event of an incident using well-defined procedure to provide resources to our communities. This shall be encompassed with three primary responsibilities:

  1. Create and maintain a series of processes and/or procedures -- akin to an SOG/SOP -- to execute with the bureau, local law enforcement, emergency services and our membership in the event of any serious incident, whether man-made or natural, whether malicious or accidental, whether it affects everyone or just a few in a significant manner. Such SOGs/SOPS should include criteria for triggering the procedure, guidelines and stages of escalation as well as criteria for returning to normalcy.

  2. Create and maintain a resource catalog - akin to an ITIL service catalog - of contacts (bureau, local law enforcement, emergency services and our membership) documenting both skills and services that can be provided in the event of an incident.

  3. Regularly communicate with the bureau, local law enforcement, emergency services and our membership either through conference calls or seminars to disseminate and remind our membership of the SIGs capabilities to support InfraGard's mission to protect critical infrastructure and preserve life in the event of an incident.

Protect Our Infrastructure
Individuals protect our country! One person can make a difference. Since our nation is comprised of systems (people, businesses, buildings, highways, farms, communications, etc.), it is important to sustain and continually improve system operations. One way to ensure these systems continue to benefit the people, is to protect them from natural disaster, human error or terror; and set up recovery actions in the event misfortune can not be avoided. The protection of our nation is a collaborative effort in which all citizens hold some level responsibility. Your contribution(s) are absolutely invaluable. Join InfraGard Today!
