During this exercise, participants will examine:

  • Operational risks associated at FCMs dealing with a large number of trade breaks, and the daily back-office processing deadline for transactions, leading to potentially delayed regulatory reporting;

  • Staff and skill sets required to address the impacts of such a disruption;

  • Appropriate timing and content of messages to clients, counterparties, regulators, etc.;

  • Reputation management; and,

  • Escalation path from IT to senior management, incident response teams, regulators, etc.

This cybersecurity workshop is ideal for individuals fulfilling client service, compliance, legal, operations, information security, information technology, risk, trading, treasury and senior management functions.

The workshop wraps up with a post-mortem conference call on Thursday, November 14, to discuss lessons learned and feedback on the event.
