The recent past has seen the Indian government take giant strides towards creating a cashless economy. While the increasing
digitisation adds economy and convenience to the bankers and the customers, there lurks silently, the menace of cybercrime.
The success of the 98% cash economy into a cashless economy depends primarily on the risk, governance and compliance
standards developed by banks. With the recent bank heist involving the major banks of India, Indian banking and financial
market is fast becoming the target for cybercrime syndicates. It is time for banking sector to advance their cyber security

The 3rd Annual CISO Summit 2017 is taking place on 14th July 2017 at The Lalit, Mumbai, India to address the dynamics of cyber
security and risk management in the Digital Business Era. The event will be a congregation of representatives from national, and
