International Financial Institution - Security Symposium- CDS2 provided subject matter experts to an International Financial Institution to collaboratively identify and address emergent business continuity risks through the development of a series of case studies that challenge both the financial services industry and firms' ability to prevent, detect, respond to and recover from significant challenges to the financial sector's increasingly complex and interdependent systems.
