  • Cultivating Your Strategic and Creative Thinking
    Cultivating Your Strategic and Creative Thinking Dr. Ted Marra Recorded: Oct 18 2017 72 mins
    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”.

    How to build exceptional stakeholder relationships and why doing this is critical in especially in turbulent times.

    Win and Wow Customers – 6 Best Practices for Onboarding in Banking and Insurance Sheryl Kingstone-451 Research, Jim Marous-Financial Brand, and Sarah Johnson-Kofax Recorded: Sep 21 2017 59 mins
    Banks, credit unions and insurance companies may have differing business models, but they all have a common goal: better conversion and retention rates.

    Fortunately, better customer onboarding usually translates to better conversion and retention. 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.

    Those first information-intensive interactions, of course, are the most critical: you usually only get once chance to win a new customer’s business. But winning is only part of the equation. 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

    Speakers will include:

    Managing operational resilience in today’s digital environment is extremely challenging, whether your organization is public, private or governmental.

    • Where cyber resiliency differs from traditional business continuity management

    • What are some practice steps to begin implementing a cyber resiliency program

    Whether or not you have embraced a formal cyber resiliency program, this session will provide some practical advice on what cyber resiliency is, how to incorporate it in your organization’s overall business continuity management efforts, and what cyber resiliency can mean to improving your organization’s ability to withstand a cyber attack.

  • 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?

    * Strong Customer Authentication vs Transaction Risk Analysis - Learn how Transaction Risk Analysis helps customer relationships, when you may use is and what you need to do NOW to prepare your fraud operations for PSD2.

    *Putting Customer Communications at the Heart of Your PSD2 Strategy - When additional authentication requirements stop your customers from managing their accounts or making payments, how can you communicate with them to get things back on track fast?

    *Hype or Reality? PSD2 and Machine Learning - Will PSD2 be the catalyst for you to add machine learning capabilities to fraud management? How will it help and what is it about PSD2 that builds the case for artificial intelligence and machine learning?

  • Digitized identity verification - the future of ID & KYC
    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.
