CFTC’s Massad on Cybersecurity and Automated Trading Controls

U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman Timothy Massad spoke with Bloomberg Markets at the Milken Institute Global Conference today about current and future efforts of the CFTC. Massad defended the value of the Dodd-Frank reforms which he said are largely in place and simply being fine tuned at this point.

1. Cybersecurity Controls
2. Automated Trading Controls to Prevent Market Disruption
