The Business Agenda

Tuesday, April 15 -16, 2021

Dear Executives, 

Cyberattacks are the fastest growing crime globally and predicted to cost the world $6 trillion annually in the next 2 years.

One of the most affected industries are finance and banking along with manufacturing, healthcare, government, education, transportation and energy. Governments and some other public sectors are severely underfunded and lack the knowledge to deal with the current situation.

To help them and the most affected industry, banking and finance, we have put together the Financial Institution Edition of Annual Nordic IT Security (NITS) summit.

‘Know Your Enemy: Understand, prepare for and proactively protect against the latest cyber threats’

To ensure your cyber defence is ready to deal with the evolving risks, you need to understand the cyber threat landscape. What are some of the critical events in the cybercriminal ecosystem that drives new threats? What should you prioritize first, and how can you apply the knowledge of the threat actor’s tools and techniques to improve your defenses and understand the cyber threats that pose the most significant risk to your organization?

In this joint keynote between Mandiant Threat Intelligent and Mandiant Consulting Services, we will cover the current cyber threat landscape, key trends observed and obtained during research and incident response and talk about how you can apply the threat actor knowledge proactively inside your organization.

The keynote will focus on three topics:

  • Current Cyber Threat landscape
  • Threat Actor Spotlight: FIN11
  • How to operationalize cyber threat intelligence into proactive defense and be better prepared for the next cyber threat.

Shifting security left while building a Cloud Native bank

Building a digital bank requires a unique combination of agility and speed while maintaining the highest level of security. Lunar, a digital challenger bank in the Nordics, has always had technology and agility as a differentiator. Lunar was built for the cloud, with Cloud Native principles, such as microservices, containers, and container orchestration amongst others. In this presentation Kasper will present some insights into the principles on which the Lunar infrastructure was built on, the continuous focus on security, and how application security is shifting left and becoming a developer concern. Kasper will discuss the challenges faced and conquered in the process of transitioning from a fintech startup to a bank with its own banking license.
