In this episode of the IIF Global Regulatory Update Podcast, we host four McKinsey senior financial leaders - Justin Greis, Lamont Atkins, Soumya Banerjee, and Lauren Craig. All featured McKinsey speakers have vast experience and influence in the world of cybersecurity and emerging technology: Justin is a Partner leading cybersecurity work in North America within the Risk & Resilience Practice, Lamont is a Senior Advisor, Soumya is an Associate Partner, and Lauren is an engagement manager and cybersecurity expert.

The focus of the conversation revolves around findings of the joint IIF/McKinsey 2024 Report on Futureproofing Cybersecurity and Emerging Technology, titled: “The Cyber Clock is Ticking: Derisking Emerging Technologies in Financial Services.” Topics include the challenges and opportunities financial services firms face in adapting to the rapidly evolving technology landscape and the associated cybersecurity risks.

The episode delves into themes such as the changing cyber risk landscape, the benefits and risks of emerging technologies, the relevance of cloud and edge computing, the impact of generative AI and the importance of cyber risk management strategies. The group also discusses key questions for organizations to consider in enhancing their security posture. The podcast concludes with suggestions for listeners to enhance their own cyber resilience in the face of evolving technological landscapes.
