Customized Client Reporting Is Rapidly Becoming the New Normal
Date: Jun 24, 2014

Buy side firms have always been challenged when it comes to providing reports to clients. Today, clients are demanding more transparency than ever before and their requests for custom reports are becoming more common. How large are the client reporting challenges for buy-side client reporting organizations? According to a recent survey by Wall Street & Technology and UBM Tech, 54% of buy-side decision makers said that they were challenged by providing timely responses to client data requests, and 47% had difficulty producing custom reports. The increase in non-standard, or custom, reporting requests is straining the capabilities of most firms. How can buy side organizations respond to client demands in a timely manner? Can existing reporting systems and approval procedures handle the volume of custom requests, or is new technology needed?

The webcast will cover:

  • The challenge with increasingly customized client reports
  • Technology that can help buy side organizations meet client reporting demands
  • Results from Wall Street & Technology's Client Reporting study, and more  

To hear the answers to some of these questions, and more, join Wall Street & Technology, UBM Tech and VistaOne as we discuss the findings from the study and highlight best practices for client reporting in an exclusive webcast.

Denial of Service and Data Breach Attacks: How Industry Information Sharing Helps Defeat Cyber Threats
Date: Sep 26, 2013

View archived webinar
Since September 2012, large-scale DDoS and application layer attacks have targeted insurance companies, asset managers, brokerage firms, credit unions, small banks, and large banks. Many financial firms’ online services have been affected for days with direct impacts on new revenue, account openings, customer service, and brand value.  

The US Federal Government recognized that sharing information about attacks and defenses—within and across industries—was essential and authorized and encouraged the formation of industry forums (2003 Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7). One of the oldest and largest of these organizations is the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC), a non-profit industry association.

Join this webinar to hear Denise Anderson of FS-ISAC describe how the organization facilitates the dissemination of critical information through a variety of channels, and why other industries might benefit from these approaches.

You will also gain “from the trenches” insights from Mike Smith, Director of Akamai’s Security Incident Response Team, on how to defend a financial institution against large-scale DDoS and data breach attacks. In a typical week, Akamai enables companies to defend against numerous attacks of up to 30 Gigabits per second.  Mike will also provide an update on Akamai’s latest threat intelligence, including an update on the latest large scale DDoS attacks (Phase 4 of Operation Ababil).

Register now to learn:

  • How FS-ISAC has helped banks defend against DDoS
  • The benefits of participating in an information sharing forum
  • The latest attack methods, tools, and approaches
  • Blocking techniques for both network and application layer attacks
  • Why some defenses fail or result in performance degradation
  • Best practices for mitigation of DDoS attacks and data breaches

Join us live to discover the benefits of industry information sharing forums and much more.
