An RI webinar in partnership with the Climate Disclosure Standards Board
Thursday 28th June 1400 BST
One year after the launch of the final report of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), hundreds of organisations are working on disclosing climate-related financial information, and a myriad of resources are being developed to support them in the process.
In May, the TCFD and CDSB launched the TCFD Knowledge Hub, the first online platform dedicated to the latest resources, tools and insights on the recommendations. This webinar will provide an overview of the platform and help organisations:
• Understand how the Hub can help you find the right resources to disclose according to the TCFD recommendations;
• Find out more about some of the key resources currently available on the website;
• Understand how your experience can be shared on the platform to help others improve their reporting practices.

Changing customer behavior and expectations are having a profound effect on how financial services are delivered. Financial service organisations are employing technology and adopting new business models to reshape the competitive landscape in a digital world.
Cloud can help, but you need to know whether a private, hybrid or multi cloud strategy is best for your organisation.
Since 2010 this scourge has continuously grown and bedeviled financial institutions and their customers. Mobile banking Trojans increased 60% last year proving that the malware problem isn’t going away. Clearly, ignorance surely isn’t bliss when it comes to protecting your business and customers.

This webinar will explore the history and evolution of mobile banking malware, and the latest and greatest ways leading banks shield themselves against these threats with technologies such as app shielding with runtime application self protection (RASP).
Avoka’s latest research shows there has been a rapid progress in some areas of the customer experience digital transformation, but there remain many opportunities to differentiate based on digital sales.

Join SWIFT and Huntswood for an interactive discussion to help you address your sanctions compliance challenges.
In many markets regulators now require you to screen transactions and customers against a number of rapidly evolving sanctions lists.
Automated filtering tools, while effective, will generate false positives and false negatives. Follow up investigations must be conducted manually, which is time consuming and risky.
This webinar will explain how implementing best practices can help you fulfil auditing and transparency requirements while also improving operational efficiency and reducing costs.
In addition, we will cover how to:
- Address evolving sanctions regulatory requirements
- Simplify conversations with regulators
- Balance internal resources for effectiveness and efficiency
- Optimise global and internal list management
- Upgrade your screening platforms without disrupting business operations

Whether driven by PSD2 compliance, market demand for mobile apps, or fintech competition, open banking is becoming a top priority for financial businesses. Through exclusive research and customer successes, we determined that building a modern application architecture with APIs, microservices and strong authentication is a key success factor in this space. In fact, our latest report shows that fully digital banks enjoy an estimated 25% cost-to-income ratio, versus 60% for traditional institutions.
For this webcast, we assembled a panel that includes Mehdi Medjaoui, author of Banking APIs: State of the Market, along with experts in API and security capabilities, to introduce the elements of modern application architecture that all digital banking business leaders should know about – API management, microservices, strong authentication and risk-based security. You’ll learn about:

* How to invest in modern application architecture to improve your open banking projects
* How to align better with IT to accelerate your time-to-market
