It’s no longer a matter of if your organization experiences a cyber-attack, or even when. It’s becoming a matter of how frequent and how impactful of a disruption those cyber-attacks are. If organizations aren’t prepared, then core services can be impacted. This presentation will provide an overview of current cyber threats targeting the financial services industry, an overview of a cyber-attack methodology, the Department of Homeland Security’s new Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and no-cost resources available for building operational resilience.

Mr. Gilbert serves as a Cybersecurity Advisor in the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). He supports the Cybersecurity Advisor (CSA) program and CISA’s mission through the goal of strengthening the security, reliability and resilience of the Nation's critical cyber infrastructure and serves in this role across the states of Virginia and West Virginia, as well as the District of Columbia.

As a CSA, Mr. Gilbert conducts various cyber preparedness, risk mitigation and incident response coordination activities though public and private partnerships and outreach efforts in support of CISA’s mission. Prior to this appointment, Mr. Gilbert had served as a senior analyst with the CSA program’s headquarters where he led the development of various tools used by the CSA program to measure and strengthen the cybersecurity management capabilities of critical infrastructure organizations.

Mr. Gilbert has been with CISA, and the Department of Homeland Security for over 9 years and has over 14 years of experience in cybersecurity spanning the commercial, federal civilian, and DoD communities.
