  • 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

    Know your (cyber) enemy
    Technology advancements have changed the way financial services operate, but they have also ushered in new challenges and threats.
    What are the risks, how big are they and what is the impact? Eg. Data theft versus system shut downs – which has a greater economic threat?

    When financial services are attacked…
    Cyber criminals have exposed vulnerabilities of financial institutions to disturbing effect. Is it more effective for banks to counter cyber risks on their own, or collectively as an industry? Would it help to have a central regulator for bank cyber security? When assessing counterparty risks, how much weightage is placed on their cyber security controls?

    Responding to the cyber challenge – how financial services can best prepare
    The establishment of regulatory controls and standards can only go so far, and the industry itself need to do much more to improve the situation – getting the basics right in a legacy environment, sharing best practices, building a security-based culture etc…

    Looking ahead: Anticipating paradigm shifts
    How much closer are we to creating ‘unhackable’ systems? Can quantum computing or other technologies present a cost-efficient solution?

  • Insights with Cyber Leaders - Patrick Heuri
    Insights with Cyber Leaders - Patrick Heuri Amar Singh Cyber Management Alliance Recorded: Sep 22 2017 22 mins
    Insights with Cyber Leaders series brings you a fascinating Interview with Patrik Heuri former Global Head of Information Security Risk at HSBC Private Bank.

    Moving from an information security role into a cyber security role has been challenging. Patrik explains his thoughts in that when you think about information security, you think of it as a technical subject, and that’s correct. In fact, most project leads will, when they start as juniors, learn the necessary techniques and methodologies they will need to develop their expertise as an IT security officer. However, further down the line of their careers, Patrik believes that there is a requirement to better understand the legal aspects to cyber and information security, such as regulations and compliance, and the information production within the organisation. He adds that it will be of great benefit to anyone entering the information security/cyber security space to train and work with the legal teams on IT matters.

For this reason, organizations continue to invest in digital technologies to streamline operations and eliminate time-consuming online interactions in areas such as new account opening, loan origination and policy applications.

What if you could win—and wow—customers from those first moments and keep them engaged throughout the onboarding process?

    Mark your calendars for this upcoming webinar, where industry experts will share six best practices to help your organization win and wow customers:

    • Easy—Enable instant image and data capture via web and mobile technology
    • Accurate—Extract data from pictures of physical documents without error-prone manual entry
    • Automated—Invest in workflow tools to automate and track completion of process steps
    • Visible—Empower staff and customers with process transparency and timely communication
    • Consistent—Ensure data is complete and integrated across internal systems
    • Efficient—Meet expectations for speed, while effectively managing regulatory risks

    Forget Oracle, IBM or any of the other big-name, publicly traded acquirers that – until now --have always set the tone in the tech M&A market.

This is the first time in the history of the multibillion-dollar tech M&A market that financial acquirers have been busier than these strategic acquirers.

  • The Top 5 Myths of Archiving
    The Top 5 Myths of Archiving Bill Tolson, Archive 360 & Gopal Ramanujam, Actiance Recorded: Aug 15 2017 53 mins
    Suffice it to say that traditional email archiving is a mature technology category. However, more firms are looking at archiving today for the first time as their ‘keep everything forever’ strategies have failed. Others are motivated by a move to Office365, while some are looking for new approaches to address the growing challenges of social media, instant messaging, and rich media communications channels that are growing organically inside their firms.

    Whatever the driver, archiving remains misunderstood by many – both within IT and across business units. Join us and our guest Bill Tolson from Archive360 as we explore and attempt to clarify the top 5 archiving myths:

    • Archiving is primarily for email storage;
    • Archiving is only necessary for regulated firms;
    • Archiving leads to the risk of over-preservation;
    • Cloud archiving is more expensive and less secure than traditional on-premises archiving;
    • End-users don’t benefit from Archiving

    We’ll wrap up with a brief overview of how Actiance and Archive360 are enabling organizations to address these myths and achieve their information governance objectives.

  • Tackling the f-word: The smarter approach to ad fraud
    Tackling the f-word: The smarter approach to ad fraud Tal Dissension, VP Client Success US, Taptica Nov 15 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ad fraud isn’t becoming more prevalent -- the fraudsters are just getting slicker. From bot nets to device ID spoofing, the tricks are getting more sophisticated, and raking in more and more cash for the swindlers.

    Staying ahead of the fraudster’s learning curve is the key — and collaboration is the crucial element. While vendors and advertisers are directly impacted by fraud, tracking partners provide the technology to help fight fraud – all three players have to work together to circle the wagons.

    Making a game plan can be complex, when there are no clear benchmarks for defining or measuring fraud, as each player defines it differently and different benchmarks are needed for each app type, geo, traffic source, and so on.

    Join this VB Live event to learn how to tackle that complexity, how to define benchmarks, detect and manage fraud, and work with your partners to circle the wagons against the fraudsters.

    You’ll learn:
    * Who the stakeholders are, plus why and how is each is affected
    * The MMPs’ role in this ecosystem
