  • Employee Fraud: Understanding the Threat from Within
    Employee Fraud: Understanding the Threat from Within
    John Hawkin, Verafin Recorded: Dec 6 2019 42 mins
    Presented by Verafin

    In order to protect themselves from evolving external threats, financial institutions continue to strengthen their fraud controls by deploying fraud detection solutions across a variety of channels. However, it is imperative that financial institutions do not overlook the threat from within.

    Financial institutions are especially vulnerable to employee fraud, as fraudsters within the organization have access to large amounts of personal identification information and financial transactional data, along with access to customer accounts. While these schemes can add up to significant fraud losses for financial institutions and their customers, they can also enable other illicit activity and pose significant compliance concerns.

    Join us for this insightful presentation, as we discuss the financial and reputational risks, as well as the potential compliance concerns of employee fraud. Learn the tactics used by internal bad actors and best practices to mitigate losses, including how appropriate monitoring of both employee access logs and transactional activity can alert institutions to fraudulent activity by employees.

    In this educational presentation, you will learn:
    - The scale of the crime of employee fraud, including the potential for losses and compliance considerations
    - Review tactics internal bad actors use to commit fraud against financial institutions
    - Best practices to mitigate losses and protect your institution from internal threats, - including appropriate monitoring and fraud controls

    Steve Holt, EY UK FS Cybersecurity Leader Recorded: Nov 27 2019 30 mins
    As disruptive innovations and new business models transform organizations and communities around the world, their sustainability is threatened by an abundance of cyber risks. This panel discussion aims to explore the importance, challenges and opportunities of cyber innovation, providing insights on global regulation and risk.

    Our industry insights tell us that cloud technologies, artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics will shape cybersecurity in the year ahead, with important implications for the financial services sector. However, there is increasing evidence that attackers are targeting third-party vendors — such as cloud providers. On the other hand, as financial services firms invest in and implement digital innovation, cyber hackers are themselves taking advantage of advances in technology to orchestrate attacks.

    Cyber risks are no longer the sole responsibility of a single team, but rather of everyone. Organizations need to act now by creating synergy between people, processes and technology.

    The panel will be moderated by Steve Holt, EY UK FS Cybersecurity Leader
    Panelists include:
    -Amanda Creak, Regional CISO and EMEA head of technology risk, Goldman Sachs
    -Jacqueline Kernot, Cybersecurity Partner, Ernst and Young

    Fiduciary duty in the 21st century – from a legal case to regulatory clarificati
    The PRI, UNEP FI and The Generation Foundation Recorded: Nov 22 2019 5 mins
    https://www.fiduciaryduty21.org/

    Fiduciary Duty in the 21st Century, a collaboration between the PRI and UNEP FI with generous financial support from The Generation Foundation, contributes an extensive evidence base to end the debate on whether fiduciary duty is a legitimate barrier to the integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in investment practice and decision-making.

    Hear from market actors themselves how governments are updating their frameworks, regulators are moving to support the updated conception of fiduciary duty, and investors are also expressing and working towards aligning economic and sustainability objectives.

    The project finds that in the 21st century there has been a marked growth in responsible investment regulation and policy around the globe. Investors that fail to incorporate ESG issues are failing their fiduciary duties and are increasingly likely to be subject to legal challenge.

    While the conceptual debate around whether ESG issues are a requirement of investor duties and obligations is now over, there are several areas where further work is required.

    How Do You Find Your High-Risk Customers?
    Corey Lynch, Verafin Recorded: Nov 15 2019 59 mins
    Presented by Verafin

    Financial institutions invest significant time and resources into identifying customers in high-risk categories, such as Private ATM Owners, Money Service Businesses (MSBs), Marijuana-Related Businesses (MRBs), Non-Governmental Organizations or Charities (NGOs), Cash Intensive Businesses (CIBs), and more.
     
    Unfortunately, for most compliance professionals these processes are primarily manual today. Continuously updating and reviewing reports and spreadsheets can hinder your ability to meet examiners expectations, fulfill compliance requirements, and follow your institution’s policies for uncovering high-risk customers.  
     
    Join us to learn how to alleviate manual processes for identifying higher-risk customers, automate due diligence processes, and strengthen your overall compliance program.

    Highlights of this webinar:
    - Review of CDD/EDD requirements and expectations for higher-risk categories of customers as outlined in the FFIEC BSA/AML Examination Manual.
    - Discussion on the challenges and potential risks of conventional processes for manually identifying and managing high-risk customers.
    - Overview of new technology approaches with targeted monitoring for risk factors, alerting you to unidentified higher-risk categories, including:
    > Private ATM Owners
    > Money Service Businesses (MSBs)
    > Marijuana-Related Businesses (MRBs)
    > Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) or Charities

    Unlocking CIAM - The Secret to Balancing Frictionless Registration & High Data
    Mickey Martin - Principal Sales Engineer, Onfido Recorded: Nov 14 2019 33 mins
    Expectations of online businesses have never been higher. Customers expect personalised experiences and high platform security, while demanding more streamlined registration processes. And if they don’t get them, they’ll take their business elsewhere.

    Resultantly, businesses are experiencing a profound tension. How do you balance frictionless registration, and effective identity management - so that customers are more than just an email and password in a database?

    In this webinar Mickey Martin will be discussing how registration as a service systems can effortlessly anchor customers to proofed identities in an easy and secure way, maintaining data integrity and facilitating much wider CIAM ecosystems.

    We’ll be discussing how:

    • CIAM systems can allow businesses to offer more secure and personalised experiences.
    • CIAM systems can empower customers to take control of their identity, performing secure account recovery and verification actions using their identity documents.
    • Registration as a service can both eliminate friction at account opening and securely proof identities.
    • Data integrity is all but guaranteed, letting you focus more resources on what matters to your business.

    Banks are facing increased commoditization pressure. In order to combat that pressure, they are focusing on improving their product offering to compete with peers, but also focusing on enabling their client-facing teams to deliver a differentiated client experience.

    To achieve both of those goals, Banks are ramping up their spend on technology investments to stay ahead of competition, but struggle to prioritize where to invest, whether to build or buy, and how to measure success.

    Join Seismic and FinTech Futures, and guest speaker Dharmesh Mistry, to learn more about the investments that Banks are making in enabling their client facing teams.

    These teams, particularly Relationship Managers, are the messengers of your Bank’s brand and product offering to clients.

    Now, it is as important as ever to ensure these teams are as educated, efficient, and effective as possible when interacting with clients and potential clients.

    RMs, Treasury Sales, and other product specialists should be up to speed on the Bank’s products, position relative to competitors, and brand messaging. They should also be supported with the tools and resources to communicate this information to clients, within the guardrails of compliance.

    After this webinar, you will walk away with:
    •An understanding of enablement trends in Banking
    •A prioritization framework for technology investments
    •Details on how to enable your client-facing teams to deliver a better client experience

    Contract Audit: The Power of Prevention
    Jon Daniells, CCa Audit Director Cc, US | Sara Clark, Director of Product Management, US Dec 11 2019 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Boosting the value delivered from your Contract Audit Program

    Traditionally, supplier contract audits have principally focused on finding past billings errors and working to recover those overbillings. However, as organizations gain a more sophisticated appreciation for the deep intelligence gained through contract audits, they are now demanding new strategies that are designed to locate errors sooner and prevent the same mistakes from being repeated. Historical recoveries, while still a desired outcome where they exist, are seen as a byproduct of the central objective, fixing problems that return even more significant value through recurring future cost savings.

    In this webinar, PRGX contract audit experts Jon Daniells and Sara Clark will recommend strategies for enhancing the value of your organization’s supplier audit program, while outlining the steps to help you recover lost profits sooner. Key takeaways from this webinar include:

    - Pathway to prevention: Learn the broad spectrum of where overpayment problems originate and how best to identify and fix the root causes

    - Supercharging your results: How evolving the maturity of your contract audit program will exponentially expand value to your company

    - From reactive to proactive: Key steps to building a program which identifies issues quicker, leading to immediate and sustained cost savings

  • Synthetic Identity Fraud: Unreal Identities Result in Real Fraud Losses
    Synthetic Identity Fraud: Unreal Identities Result in Real Fraud Losses
    Scott Peddle, Verafin Dec 13 2019 5:30 pm UTC 50 mins
    In this digital age, vast amounts of compromised customer information from data breaches and fraud scams is readily available for purchase on the dark web. To further their illicit schemes, fraudsters can use your customer’s personal and financial information to create fictional or partially fabricated identities in an emerging trend known as synthetic identity fraud.

    With combinations of fake and real identifying information, fraudsters use these synthetic identities to apply for new accounts, products or auto loans. Crime rings often utilize synthetic identities in large, ongoing financial fraud schemes, repeating these crimes at multiple institutions, exponentially increasing the potential for loss.

    Join us as we discuss the challenges facing financial institutions when combatting synthetic identity fraud in various forms of financial crime, such as loan fraud, deposit fraud, electronic transfer fraud, and new account fraud.

    In this presentation we will discuss:

    - The scale of synthetic identity fraud and how it relates to other financial crimes
    - Common ploys fraudsters use to commit synthetic identity fraud
    - Challenges facing financial institutions to mitigate fraud losses involving - synthetic identity fraud and other evasion methods
    - Real-life examples of fraud schemes and crime rings employing synthetic identity fraud and related illicit activities

  • Debating the future of greenwashing in asset management
    Debating the future of greenwashing in asset management
    Responsible Investor Dec 16 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    While growing at an exponential rate, the green finance market is still in its infancy and is awash in mislabelled “sustainable” investment products. What is considered “green” varies from investor to investor and from bank to bank and across regions, both in terms of business clientele and financial offerings from the sector. As regulators across Europe, the UK and in North America increase pressure on investment managers to increase the transparency of financial product labelling.

    As countries get serious about net-zero emissions targets in line with the recommendations of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, pressure is growing for policymakers to mandate unified definitions of “green” finance and introduce compulsory disclosures.

    In a recent Morgan Stanley survey of institutional investors, 70% said they are integrating sustainable investing into their investment process, signalling just how quickly the environmental, social and governance (ESG) imperative is catching on. Despite this, the ESG narrative is dominated by asset managers and NGOs. Asset owners - pension funds, endowments, foundations and other large institutional investors - are generally kept in the dark as to what “sustainable” and “green” actually mean in the context of their investment funds.

    This webinar will ask tough questions about what a new wave of transparency in fund labelling and fee disclosure could mean for global investors who are committed to going green.

    How to Understand and Harness Disruptive Innovation in Financial Services
    Husayn Kassai, CEO, Onfido Dec 19 2019 3:00 pm UTC 34 mins
    Disruptive innovation is a phrase on the tip of every tongue. A concept that’s redefined industries and toppled organisations. Its effects are far-reaching. Disruptive innovation has already transformed fundamental services like transportation and reinvented how we consume entertainment. Now it’s starting to influence financial services. It seems that everyone is searching for that disruption, but few can define what it is and how to find it.

    In this webinar, Husayn Kassai, co-founder of Onfido, examines exactly what disruptive innovation is, and how it’s being applied to trade and finance.

    Parker Crockford – Director of Policy & Strategic Accounts, Onfido | Mohan Mahadevan – VP of Research, Onfido Dec 20 2019 3:00 pm UTC 55 mins
    The way we verify our identities is changing. With traditional enterprises evolving and taking their operations fully digital, and newer all-digital businesses are growing exponentially, it makes sense that identity verification and KYC move online too. But in a remote setting, it’s hard for businesses to scale up their user onboarding without also increasing risk. Now, many are turning to AI-based solutions to meet that need.

    From hybrid to augmented, machine learning to deep learning, there are lots of new approaches to identity verification out there. But how can businesses tell the difference between buzzword and true black box, and what are the benefits of each?

    In this discussion, we’ll decode the various different applications of AI to the identity verification problem. We’ll also discuss how to use these new technologies to increase efficiencies at scale and provide exceptional customer experiences.

    Join this expert panel webinar to hear a dynamic panel discussion on:
    -The challenges of traditional methods of identity verification, and why enterprises are turning to AI
    -The different ways AI can be applied for more efficient identity verification
    -The benefits of a hybrid human-AI approach
    -A new identity reality: How will we be able to use our identities in future

    How will investors respond to green fiscal policy and a new wave of action on climate targets from the world’s central bankers? Join us to find out what’s in store for 2020 as central banks and prudential regulators ramp up action on climate risk and sustainable finance.

    To kick-off 2020, RI is bringing together global central banking leaders to consider how ESG and climate risk integration into central banking and monetary policy could influence the investment decision-making of global investors.

    As fiscal policy makers and macroprudential regulators within the Network for Greening the Financial System get down to business, investors are waking up to the potential for climate-aligned monetary policy that could nudge economies towards alignment with the 2 degree targets committed to in the Paris Agreement. With major economies like China, India, and Mexico getting serious about financial system alignment with climate targets, who is leading?

    From the integration of climate risk management into the work of supervisory authorities to the incorporation of sustainability criteria into central banks’ portfolio management functions for the world’s largest treasuries, many central banks and prudential regulators are moving faster than the investment community. This webinar is a chance for the global investment community to better understand what’s in store and to discuss investor responses to the greening of central bank balance sheets.
