  • Presentation on Cyber Resilience by Paul Williams, Senior Technical Advisor, Bank of England
  • Panel: Cyber Security versus Cyber Resiliency.  The financial sector’s ecosystem has been built on interconnectedness, with the flow of information through financial market infrastructures (FMIs) critical to health of the markets and the wider economy.  How does the cleared derivatives industry manage the security of that information, and how do market infrastructure providers maintain resiliency from the threat of deliberate or accidental impact to their systems, especially when they operate across a variety of jurisdictions and different regulatory requirements?
    • Moderator: Tessa Jones, Regulation and Industry Technology Manager, FIA
    • Paul Williams, Senior Technical Advisor, Bank of England
    • Russell Wing, Head of Information Security, LME
    • Burim Bivolaku, Director, Information Security, ICE
    • Jonas Ullmann, Head of Market Functionality, Eurex
    • Sara Sayeed, Associate, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
  • Fintech: Regulatory presentation on sandboxes by Michael Merz, Managing Director, Ponton
  • Panel: Blockchain, Smart Contracts, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning – these are just a few of the fintech developments that have the potential to disrupt the cleared derivatives industry.  How does the industry adopt innovation yet manage the potential risks that it brings?  Our panel will discuss the real-life challenges that the industry faces, not just from the perspective of understanding and adopting new technology, but also how they remain compliant with global regulatory requirements.

    • John Ho, Head Financial Markets, Legal, Standard Chartered Bank
    • Brett Hillis, Commodities and Financial Markets Partner, Reed Smith
