    Join our guest, Dr. Ted Marra as he introduces his new strategic leadership course in Global Risk Academy.

    During the webinar we will cover:

    How does a truly strategic organization think? What is strategic thinking versus strategic planning? What are the vital few factors that will determine your organisation’s long-term success or failure and are they on your radar screen?

    Who should attend.

    People with 10 years management experience minimum up to and including C-Level in all disciplines responsible for strategic decisions or large scale operational issues - so they have large budget and many people reporting to them.

    Managers and senior management from all areas of the organisation having responsibility for planning and achievement of key business objectives.

    Why you should attend.


    - Reflect on how you got where you are as an organisation;

    - What factors were critical to your success? What factors were the basis for your success?

    - What held you back – prevented you from being even more successful?
    - What could you have done differently


    Understand what are the most critical factors that will better ensure your organisation is a “winner” in the future (e.g., next 3-5 years).

    Find out which ones you may be missing and what to do about it before it’s too late and you become just an “average or good” organisation when, with a little effort and the right strategic thinking and creativity, you could take the organisation to the next level of performance and move toward “greatness”.

  • Connected devices and the rise of invisible payments
    Connected devices and the rise of invisible payments Kevin Gordon, Lead Innovation Architect, Worldpay Recorded: Oct 17 2017 31 mins
    By 2020, five billion people will be online, with 25 billion devices and machines using the Internet. Many devices will share data and services, and the way we engage with them will fundamentally change. In a connected world, consumer expectations of executing transactions on a phone, tablet, VR device – or even a refrigerator – will be higher than ever.

    As time goes on, devices will become smarter and make more and more decisions for us. We’ll be able to create rules as users to tell our devices what we’re comfortable with them paying for automatically. The use cases for rule-based payment are endless!

    As such, the onus of creating frictionless download and shopping experiences while overcoming barriers between devices lies with each business. When it comes to recurring and subscription payments, the technology underpinning these user experiences across devices is critical. Seamless, simple, and secure are the watchwords of an IoT world.

    Don’t wait until 2020 to address consumer pain points and overcome technological barriers to IoT adoption. Tune in to the latest VB Live event and hone in on the fastest, best ways to prepare for the IoT world. After all, it’s already here. Attend this webinar and find out:

    •How companies are already dealing with device connectivity
    •How the challenges posed by IoT are being solved for today
    •Global consumer attitudes around payments made by devices
    •How payments will become ‘invisible’ or ‘translucent’ for users
    •Payment technology that will enable devices to make decisions

  • Image recognition with deep learning
    Image recognition with deep learning Layla Tadjpour, Data Science Consultant, Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California. Recorded: Oct 11 2017 39 mins
    In this webinar, we will learn about image recognition with deep learning. After a brief overview of what deep learning is, and why it matters, we will learn how to classify dogs from cats. That is, how to train a model to recognize dog images from cat images.

    We use Keras, an easy to use python deep learning library that sits on top of Tensorflow, and “fine-tuning”, a very important skill for any deep learning practitioner, to train a model to classify the images.

    Once we trained our model to classify dogs from cats images with high accuracy, we dig into the details of the trained model and look at its building blocks, i.e., Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), Fully Connected Block and activation functions to develop an understanding of how the deep learning model works.

  • How to Get More Personal Data Without the Risk
    How to Get More Personal Data Without the Risk Nathan Rowe, Chief Product Officer, Evident Oct 24 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Personal data is essential for your business - to enable trust and safety, to enable personalization of services, to enable growth of your business and to enable verification of identities. While obtaining and managing personal data is necessary, it can be extremely complicated, time consuming and risky. Handling or holding sensitive data can lead to major security threats. Companies are investing more time and energy to effectively acquire, manage and protect the personal information of their users and workforce to the detriment of their own business focus. Additionally, the regulatory requirements and liability that accompany any interaction with personal data continue to increase, putting additional strain on businesses to stay updated and compliant.

    From a user perspective, as individuals are asked to provide their information more broadly, security concerns and a loss of control become more prevalent, putting once-standard interactions at risk. These put even more pressure on businesses to protect their communities’ information as well as their brand equity.

    This presentation will discuss what challenges are faced by companies dealing with personal data related issues. We will cover best practices, real world examples and lessons learned as businesses look to increase their access to the answers they need, while reducing their risk and liability.

    Key takeaways
    - Best practices for how to share and secure personal information
    - Pitfalls to avoid as you grow your organization and expand offerings
    - Hear real world examples on how businesses engage with their communities and personal data

  • Reduce Friction and Cut Compliance Costs with Digital ID Verification
    Reduce Friction and Cut Compliance Costs with Digital ID Verification Joe Bloemendaal, Vice President, Sales EU, Mitek Systems; Chris Phillips, Compliance Department, Gain Capital Oct 25 2017 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The latest EU Anti-Money Laundering directive will significantly increase the frequency with which financial service providers need to conduct ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) checks. To maximise the effectiveness of digital transformation initiatives, financial services and other regulated industries must find effective digital identity verification solutions.

    Current methods for identity verification checks place an enormous cost burden on banks, payments processors, and lenders, as most methods rely heavily on manual processes. Furthermore, these processes are cumbersome for users, driving away potential customers.

    Figuring out how to balance the competing needs of compliance and costs against the expectations of today’s digital native users is key to any financial service provider looking to win and retain new customers.

  • Digital Coin Offerings: Recent SEC Guidance and Tax Considerations
    Digital Coin Offerings: Recent SEC Guidance and Tax Considerations Morrison & Foerster's Joshua Klayman, Jay Baris, Alfredo Silva, Daniel Kahan and Shiukay Hung Oct 31 2017 4:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Token sales, also known as ICOs, represent a new capital-raising method that is being explored by a variety of companies in the market. In the past few months, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has provided guidance concerning token sales. Although the SEC did not declare that all digital tokens constitute securities, it cautioned that certain tokens may be securities and that existing securities frameworks apply to token sales, notwithstanding that digital tokens may be distributed via distributed ledger technology.

    In addition, the IRS has published guidance relating to tokens that are “convertible virtual currencies” and has indicated that such tokens generally are treated as property for US federal income tax purposes.
    Token sales, and the legal and regulatory landscapes in the US and around the world with respect to digital tokens, continue to evolve.

    This webinar will explore the current legal, regulatory and tax landscape relating to token offerings and will consider the following:

    •What are digital tokens and how are they typically used and sold?
    •What guidance has the SEC provided regarding token sales, and what is the significance of that guidance?
    •What guidance has the IRS provided regarding tokens and what tax considerations are relevant to tokens and token sales?
    •What are some of the other legal matters that token issuers and their counsel should be aware of when contemplating launching token sales?

    Clearly, the onslaught of data, particularly big data, continues to cause many organizations to look for new ways in which to store, analyze, and manage that data. Cloud computing from public cloud vendors is often one place in which enterprises turn. Traditionally deployed and managed on-premises, databases are the lifeline of many enterprises. And while the cloud is appealing for a number of reasons, there are still questions on the minds of many organizations in choosing the right cloud partner to manage their database in the cloud.

  • Engaging Your Employees
    Engaging Your Employees Eugenie Biddle, NS&I and Jess Hardy, The Team Nov 8 2017 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    It is estimated that disengaged employees cost the UK economy £64bn through lost productivity, poor service delivery, and reduced discretionary effort. So consider the impact employee engagement makes to your bottom line, human and financial resources. What could be the positive impact engaged employees have on operational performance and profit? How can you leverage a compelling employer brand to ensure you attract the right talent for the right jobs? And how do you use internal communications to effectively inform, engage and inspire employees to thrive?
    Getting the brand right on the inside of the business will help maximise the brand on the outside. But it requires strategy and tactics to work together in harmony to create an employer brand consisting of loyal internal brand ambassadors, which in turn will have a positive effect on your company.

    We are used to regard intelligence in terms of rational and logical thinking, the ability to reason and analyse based on pattern recognition, facts and data. However, there are also other kinds of intelligence.
    One type of intelligence is so-called emotional intelligence which in many ways is related to what we typically know as empathy.

    Digitized identity verification - the future of ID & KYC Sarah Clark,Mitek Systems, Mike Montemarano, JP Morgan, Supriyo Guha, GENPACT Nov 14 2017 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Financial institutions from all over the world are facing increasingly strict regulations regarding the verification and authentication of their customers’ identity. Furthermore, with the increasing amount of data breaches, status-quo identity verification processes have not only been compromised but have also made complying with current regulations harder. This ever-changing environment has forced a tipping point for organizations to regard the adoption of new technologies for identity verification as a must-have rather than a nice-to-have.

    In the end, financial institutions must satisfy consumers’ demands for speed and ease of use to prevent them from going to the competition. To gain a competitive edge, remain compliant, and offer a frictionless and user experience, it is imperative for FIs to invest in technologies that bridge the compliance-convenience gap.
