We hope you enjoyed the recent Jack Henry Connect conference in San Diego! Building connections is at the heart of what we do, and we were thrilled to be back in person this year with four action-packed days of connecting with you through a host of networking events, social activities, technology exhibitions, and more dynamic speakers than ever before.

During the conference, Jack Henry’s risk and fraud experts stayed busy, presenting over 25 timely sessions on a variety of subjects related to the challenges faced by today’s community and regional financial institutions. Sessions focused on key trends, hot topics, and innovations impacting the financial services industry today regarding fraud and risk management. 

To recap, here are a few highlights from our highly attended Reducing Risk and Fraud sessions at the conference:

A Day in the Life: Cyber Defender Edition

Jack Henry’s Yonesy Núñez, Chief Information Security Officer, led the main stage session providing insight into the crucial steps cyber professionals take when identifying and managing zero-day vulnerabilities, which have increased drastically over the last year and require rapid orchestration of any security team in order to combat risk.

Cybersecurity Trends Driving Regulations in 2022 and Beyond
