BCAC Vendor Management & Cybersecurity Webinar 

BCAC is pleased to announce a half-day webinar on Vendor Management & Cybersecurity. 

Topics that will be covered include: 

Best Practices for Third-Party Risk Management

Financial institutions continue to seek outsourcing relationships in an effort to gain efficiencies, meet evolving customer needs, and manage cybersecurity risks. Similarly, many financial institutions are researching and considering partnerships with fintech companies. Join Wolf IT Manager Jason Clinton for an informative session as he covers the fundamentals of third-party risk management, common issues encountered during audits, as well as how your organization can adapt to the rise of fintech.

Preparations to Mitigate and Respond to Ransomware

Estimated global losses from cybercrime rose to $1 trillion in 2020, according to a report by McAfee. There’s also been a recent rise in ransomware attacks plaguing industries, leaving institutions either scrambling to remediate negative impacts or generate new preventive measures. Cybersecurity breaches can have severe financial, operational, and reputational consequences, and it can be difficult to defend your organization against these risks when hackers are consistently updating their methods to infiltrate your systems and steal confidential information. 

We’ll dive into recent trends in ransomware—looking at where it is now, where it’s going, and steps you can take to protect your organization. From detection and prevention strategies to effective response procedures, we’ll detail what you can do to secure your systems before attacks happen, and what you need to do during an attack to contain and mitigate damage.


We're pleased to have as our presenters Jason Clinton, Manager - IT Advisory Services Group and Sean Goodwin, Manager - IT Assurance Services Group from Wolf & Company, P.C. 

Jason is a Manager in Wolf’s IT Advisory Services group, where he is responsible for coordinating and executing IT audit services for financial institutions, healthcare SaaS organizations, and fintech organizations. He has 10 years of experience providing IT audit services and specializes in vendor management and facilitating and performing System and Organization Controls (SOC) readiness assessments and reports.

Sean is a Manager in Wolf’s Information Technology (IT) Assurance Services group where he is responsible for coordinating and executing cybersecurity and IT audit services at client locations for financial, healthcare, educational, and investment planning clients. Sean leads Wolf’s security assessment and PCI DSS teams.
