“Navigating the Cybersecurity Risk Landscape in the Financial Sector”

From the Democratic National Committee to Yahoo!, high profile cyber breaches have dominated the news this year.  Criminal cyber schemes like the Business Email Compromise and ransomware attacks are plaguing businesses of all sizes.  What is the role of a "business" person in understanding and addressing the risk? What do you really need to worry about at work and at home? What can you do to keep your business and family safe? Join us for an interactive discussion.

Speaker:  Jenny Menna, Vice President and Cybersecurity Partnership Executive, US Bank.

Jenny leads collaboration initiatives with industry and government to advance the cybersecurity posture of U.S. Bank, and the financial sector as a whole.   She also leads U.S. Bank’s Information Systems Security Intelligence, cyber exercise, education and awareness, and Business Line Information Security Officer teams.  Her industry leadership roles include the Global Cybersecurity Alliance Advisory Board, the Financial Top Level Domain Board of Directors, the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center’s Threat Intelligence Committee.

Prior to joining U.S. Bank, Jenny held a variety of executive leadership positions in the Department of Homeland Security component responsible for securing federal civilian, state and local government and critical infrastructure networks, as well as for coordinating cyber incident response.  Her responsibilities ranged from industry outreach to front-line operational and technical activities – including serving as US-CERT Director, to leading national-level policy initiatives. She received awards for her work under both the Bush and Obama Administrations, and the inaugural Excellence Award from the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center for her leadership in advancing state and local government cybersecurity.  She is a Certified Information Security Manager (CISM).
