Mortgage advice and distribution

22 February 2018, London

Keeping track of developments in the broker world is becoming increasingly challenging, with new business models and cutting-edge technology appearing all the time. How building societies respond to these challenges will be just as important as understanding the implications of a whole raft of regulatory changes over the past year, with yet more to come.  Hear the views from leading experts in the broker industry and from building societies on the key developments in 2018 and beyond at this seminar.


Cyber risk - the human factors

28 February 2018, Warwick

A speech by the FCA’s Head of Technology, Resilience & Cyber in January 2018 make the FCA’s expectations on building cyber-resilience very clear. The FCA expects all firms to protect themselves from many attacks, identify threats, and vulnerabilities, detect attacks that are successful and know how to respond to and recover: to contain any disruption, restore lost service or protect vital data - quickly.  This event will examine the human element of cyber risk more closely, taking delegates through the main risk factors in human behaviour that creates opportunities for cyber-criminals, how to spot warning signs and what to do if you identify that your society is at risk.
