Launch of AIMA's Guide to Sound Practices for Cyber Security


Cyber risk is a growing concern for institutions, individuals, and financial markets. In recent years, it has surged to the top position in the list of global risks for business with regulators also paying increased attention to financial institutions’ cyber security planning.

With this in mind, the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) has published the latest iteration of its Guide to Sound Practices for Cyber Security.  AIMA’s guides to sound practices comprise the widest body of sound practice output and guidance on the alternative investment fund industry.  Each guide relates to a specific area and is used by particular individuals or teams to assist them in implementing sound policies and processes in their firms.

The Cyber Security Guide sets out principles that investment managers should consider when developing a cyber security programme as part of its overall compliance and operations. Among other things the updated Guide includes further discussion around cloud technology and new threats, and a general update to the various elements of an effective cyber security programme.

This event will provide an opportunity to hear about AIMA's Guide to Sound Practices for Cyber Security and to hear directly from chief information security officers and cyber security practitioners on cyber risk and resilience measures in the asset management sector.

Speakers include:

• Lawson Caisley, Partner, Allen & Overy LLP  

• James McGinnigle, Head of Information Security, Marshall Wace Asset Management

• Maya Goethals, Senior Manager and Cyber Lead for Investment Management, Deloitte

• Jamie Smith, Director, International Technology, Eze Castle Integration

• Katherine Buller, Chief Security Officer, GSA Capital


This event will be held under Chatham House rule.
