NASAA to Hold Cybersecurity Event with Reps from FBI, SEC, and Treasury Department
The North American Securities Administrators Association will hold a day-long cybersecurity roundtable on June 23th to discuss the latest developments in cybersecurity and how small- and mid-sized investment adviser and broker-dealer firms can help protect client information.
“Cyberattacks continue to be one of the greatest threats to our financial sector and should be a top priority concern for entities regulated by NASAA members,” said Mike Rothman, NASAA president and Minnesota commissioner of commerce.
The roundtable will feature representatives from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Department of Treasury, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, state securities agencies, and financial services industry representatives for a discussion of cybersecurity issues for securities regulators and regulated entities.
The roundtable will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Spire Event Center in Washington, D.C. Seating is limited and on a first come-first served basis. For those unable to attend in person, NASAA is offering a virtual, live-streaming version of the roundtable.
NASAA is the oldest international organization devoted to investor protection. Its membership consists of the securities administrators in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the provinces and territories of Canada, and Mexico.
Organized in 1919, the North American Securities Administrators Association is an investor advocacy association whose membership consists of 67 state, provincial, and territorial securities administrators in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Canada, and Mexico.
