  • Policy is the corner stone of any risk-based security programme. Policies are put in place not only to govern the way organisations operate, but also to mitigate risks, and as such require board level backing and sign-off. Yet when it comes to security programmes information risk, both internally and externally, is often presented in terms un-meaningful to the board of directors. Using real world example, this session will present a model for effective risk-based security that engages senior executives.
  • The digital and physical selling environments are converging fast in the apparel and footwear sectors.

This webinar can help provide insight into why those outcomes occur and how to avoid.

  • Rishi Dave, CMO of Dun & Bradstreet, shows how marketers achieve remarkable results through Account Based Marketing (ABM). Account Based Marketing techniques upset the concept of “generic” relationship development. Instead, collaborative sales and marketing that’s “data inspired” strengthens the creation of personalised experiences delivered through the content supply chain. In fact, a study conducted by a well-known analyst group found that companies using D&B data manage campaigns 46% more effectively, close deals 29% more effectively, and generate 10% more revenue.

  • Traditional methods of identity verification are contributing to lengthy and expensive KYC and onboarding processes. Technological advances, regulatory requirements and business necessity are leading organisations to a point where they have to rethink the way identity works.

    With so many financial services institutions embracing digital, the big challenge is bringing together information about each client, from multiple systems, to create one accurate client identity. Achieving this, while demonstrating robust and compliant KYC capabilities, is causing costs to spiral.

    In this exclusive webinar Jodie Paula Cohen, producer of the acclaimed Identity & KYC conference, catches up with leading Identity expert Rob Laurence, Director of Innovate Identity, to gain some practical insights into how these challenges can be tackled.

    Questions will include:

    1) How close are we to being able to access digital information about identity in a consumable and trusted way, across industries?

    2) Which technologies should organisations be looking into, to support their identity and KYC processes?

    3) Is the blockchain a complete solution for improved identity verification, or just part of a wider solution?

    4) How can institutions ensure a user-friendly and compliant KYC and onboarding process?

    5) What are the challenges and benefits of putting in place a ‘financial services passport’?

  • Can Artificial Intelligence technology actually profit your business? Data visualizations and dashboards seem to be all the rage in financial reporting. But with headlines such as the ‘Robots are Coming’, it’s time to think differently about the way we use data and ask how can the robots help us? Businesses today have the tools to collect and present their data, but what’s still missing is the ability for the data to answer our questions directly, not via a dashboard where we still have to work out the meaning for ourselves. In this webinar we’ll discuss:

    •How AI can take you beyond the dashboards and let your data explain in words what’s going on.
    •How to embody your experts' knowledge in software, and automate it.
    •How AI can profit your business using NLG technology to automate reports such as FP&A reporting and loan credit reporting.
  • Digital technology has already disrupted many industries, and today it is the wealth and asset management space that stands on the cusp of a digital revolution. Consumer demand, increasing competition from new market entrants and regulatory pressures are driving the speed at which technology is being adopted within these sectors.
    Capacity constraints, cultural barriers and concerns over data insecurity have hampered the adoption of digital technology so far; but the tide is now turning....

    Jodie Paula Cohen, producer of the acclaimed Digital Technology in Wealth & Asset Management conference, catches up with leading researcher and analyst Amin Rajan to gain some insights into how the industry may evolve and where advantages will be gained:

    - How are new market entrants shaping the evolution of the sector?

    - How are clients responding to digital technology? What are their main concerns and demands?
  • The financial crisis saw a large number of firms suffer huge losses through a manual and disjointed approach to approving credit. Fast-forward to 2016, and things have shifted substantially. Government regulatory changes have demanded innovation – and marketplace lenders have risen to the challenge by using predictive modeling, data aggregation, and electronic payment technology to assess the financial health of consumers and small businesses.

    But these innovations don’t just help with compliance; new lending tech dramatically improves the customer experience by demonstrating that a lender truly understands the consumer’s credit needs. To this end, the industry is moving toward developing a single, unified view of the consumer – incorporating personal, transactional, application, and product-selection data collected from financial institutions – and using this data to perform rich analytics and needs assessment for borrowers. So armed, new-age lenders can leverage this alternative data to cross-sell other credit products at key decision points during the loan-application process – a win-win for both borrowers and lenders.

    In this webinar you'll:

    * Learn the trends driving change in marketplace lending and credit risk management

    * Build more accurate predictive ratings models based on alternative data sets

    * Get insight into the future of marketplace lending and credit risk management

    Speakers:
    * Scott Crawford, VP of Product and Marketing, Ascend Consumer Financial
    * Krishna Venkatraman, SVP of Data and Analytics, OnDeck
    * Terrence McKeown, Practice Manager, Credit Analytics, Envestnet | Yodlee
    * Evan Schuman, Moderator, VentureBeat

    Join us on February 24th at 10 am PT/1 pm ET for an animated discussion on the trends driving change in lending and credit risk management. Learn how to leverage new technologies and data analytics to improve credit decisions, collections, and portfolio management.

  • The JOBS Act and more recently the FAST Act have brought about a number of changes to the framework governing offerings exempt from SEC registration. More and more US and non-US companies are choosing to rely on securities offerings that are exempt from the US registration requirements. In part as a result of these and other changes, there are now more sources of private capital and “restricted securities” have become more liquid. As a result, many more promising companies are choosing to defer their IPOs and rely on exempt offerings to fund their growth. We will discuss the following:

    How the JOBS Act has affected private placements;
    Late-stage private placements;
    The Regulation A market;
    The final crowdfunding regulations;
    Other exempt offering developments, such as intrastate offering changes; and
    Resales of restricted securities through private secondary market transactions as well as reliance on new Section 4(a)(7).

  • Three years of Uptime Institute Survey Data illustrate the organizational shift in IT Infrastructure Efficiency Prioritization and Accountability. There are new faces at the IT table. And one of them is sustainability. Two years ago, a place at the table for sustainability would have been provocative, and perhaps evoked derision. In 2015, less than a tenth of enterprise IT stakeholders had confidence in corporate sustainability to affect IT efficiency and costs. One short year later, 2016 is a vastly different matter and the data suggests that the time of corporate sustainability in IT is here now: 70% of enterprise IT organizations actively participate in corporate sustainability efforts. Join us as we reveal additional insights from our Efficient IT research.
  • Conventional wisdom blames “human error” for the majority of data center outages: operator mistakes. The responsibility falls to the operator for failing to rescue a situation. But failure in most cases, can be attributed to poor management decisions (design compromises, budget cuts, staff reductions, vendor selection, a lack of appropriate procedures and resources) disconnected from the incident. What decisions led to a situation where front line operators were unprepared or untrained to respond to an incident and mishandled it?

    In this session you will learn about:
    •What causes data center outages
    •Management and Operations Deficiencies
    •A management framework to address behaviors and risks—independent of design
