TOPIC: Financial Real-Time Threats: Impacting Trading Floor Operations
This presentation will aim to illustrate how individual application or network layer threats, if combined correctly, can impact the workload between the “pit” and departments such as settlements, processing and accounting. Stemming from the lowest level of internal threat, systems on, or behind, trading floor operations can be manipulated in ways that might even go unnoticed. Such impact is possible due to the shear complexity of the enterprise applications used, as well as the ways in which they are inter-related.
