Splunk, Sibos, and Cybersecurity - It’s history in the making!

In a series of firsts, Splunk is a sponsor at SIBOS, a premier financial services conference, that also for the first time will take place in London, a key buying center for the industry.

Business leaders and influencers from the global community with converge on the forum to network and explore the latest thinking on the theme, “Thriving in a hyperconnected world – challenges and opportunities brought on by technology, digital ecosystems, and the proliferation of Big Data.” And Splunk is excited to get in on the conversation!

On Thursday, 26 September, James Hanlon, Head of Security Specialization EMEA, will be speaking on a topic near and dear to our hearts - cybersecurity.  In his talk, “How to Rob a Bank: Cybersecurity and Analytics to Save the Day”, James will explore the nefarious ways in which modern-day bank robbers, armed with AI and ML technologies of their own, are infiltrating banks, and share how analytics and automation are indispensable to creating a cybersecurity arsenal to meet these challenges.
