March 14, 2017

On March 14, Nicole Friedlander was quoted in a Bank Director article titled “Cybersecurity: What the Best Banks Do to Protect Themselves.” The article discussed the ways in which banks mitigate cybersecurity risk and devise plans to handle inevitable data breaches. “Even big institutions with the most robust cybersecurity procedures will find it tough to protect themselves from every threat. Cybersecurity is about risk mitigation, not risk elimination. There's no silver bullet,” Nicole said. She discussed the need to regularly update plans for dealing with breaches, saying, “Companies are constantly changing. They have new employees, infrastructure and systems. The incident response plan has to be tested and updated to reflect that reality. Otherwise it's like having a fire exit plan for a building you no longer work in.''
