COVID-19 is having a dramatic impact on the nature of market, credit, financial, and operational risks facing companies. Information about these risks is evolving at a rapid pace. To help risk managers stay informed of the latest developments and address the challenges associated with COVID-19, GARP has launched a podcast series featuring lively discussions with thought leaders and experts.
Our first interview is with Ed Amoroso, currently Chief Executive Officer of TAG Cyber LLC, a global cyber security advisory, training, consulting, and media services company supporting hundreds of companies across the world. Ed recently retired from AT&T after thirty-one years of service in the cybersecurity space.
In recent years, financial institutions have proven to be vulnerable to cyberattacks, leaving risk teams scrambling. With more work pushed online than ever before due to COVID-19 – and hackers finding new ways to exploit networks - understanding new and evolving cyber risks is even more critical today. How can cyber risk and risk management in general keep up with the sophistication and scale of potential attacks against company systems in a work environment that has already been disrupted? What role do CROs and risk managers play in this battle and what role do cybersecurity professionals play in risk management in the future.
