Sheltered Harbor & Cyber Recovery
Speaker: Jim Shook, CISSP, CIPP/US – Director, Cybersecurity & Compliance Practice
Sheltered Harbor was formed in 2015 as a nonprofit, industry-led initiative to guide U.S. financial institutions to decrease the risk of a cyberattack compromising customer data and interrupting normal banking services. The Sheltered Harbor ecosystem comprises participating institutions (U.S. banks, credit unions, brokerages, asset managers), national trade associations, solution providers and service providers dedicated to enhancing the stability and cyber resilience of the financial sector.
Jim combines his computer science degree and experience with over a decade as a practicing attorney, helping customers to better understand cybersecurity requirements and best practices, from regulatory and legal concerns to the technical details. Today his practice focuses mainly on ransomware and destructive attacks, and combating their impact with our Cyber Recovery Solution. Jim has been the driving force behind Dell’s relationship with the Sheltered Harbor initiative and serves on its Joint Steering Committee, and is a long-time participant in the Sedona Conference working groups on electronic information and cybersecurity and privacy.
