In regulated industries, such as Financial Services, Government and Healthcare, forms and signatures are critical components of enrolment and onboarding interactions. Yet most services still rely on forms and signatures that function poorly on mobile—the very place most consumers spend their time. Creating and updating high volumes of forms in a timely manner can also be a huge challenge.
Join us to learn how Adobe Experience Manager Forms and Adobe Sign can help transform complex forms-based transactions into streamlined and compliant experiences that accelerate business and deliver better customer service.
In this webinar, learn how to:
•Provide an end-to-end digital form filling and signing experience across any channel
•Integrate e-signatures across the document process with Adobe Sign and Adobe Experience Manager integration
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy, and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. Acknowledging identity threats like phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks, the GDPR applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of those residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location.
An excerpt from the GDPR describes authentication as ‘key to securing computer systems’ and as the first step ‘in using a remote service or facility, and performing access control’. The document also outlines various GDPR-compliant authentication solutions, such as smart card, OTP push apps, and FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F).
Yubico’s enterprise solution - the YubiKey - combines support for OpenPGP (an open standard for signing and encryption), FIDO U2F (a protocol that works with an unlimited number of applications), and smart card / PIV (a standard that enables RSA or ECC sign/encrypt operations using a private key stored on the device) all in one multi-protocol authentication device. This makes it a strong and flexible solution for companies required to comply with GDPR. Attend this webcast and learn:
•How GDPR will impact the way organizations worldwide store and access the personal information of EU citizens
•How to leverage open standards to achieve GDPR compliance for strong authentication
•How a multi-protocol authentication device protects organizations from phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks
On August 1, news of a bitcoin "hard fork" broke the cryptocurrency world. Traders were flung into uncertainty and many started wondering about the new Bitcoin Cash and what it means for the market.

The 2017 Verizon Data Breach Report found that 81% of hacking-related breaches leveraged stolen and/or weak passwords last year. Organizations looking for strong authentication solutions often face a trade-off between security and simplicity.
Smart card and FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) are two of the strongest authentication solutions for protecting your entire organization, and securing the information they access. Employees, vendors, partners, and customers all need strong authentication for workstation login, access to web applications, remote access to services, and privileged system access. During this webinar, Yubico’s VP of Solutions Jerrod Chong will share:
• A comparison of enterprise authentication techniques, including username/password, one-time password, mobile push, smart card, and FIDO U2F
• Why smart card and FIDO U2F are the strongest authentication solutions available today
• How a single hardware authentication device combining smart card and FIDO U2F authentication can protect your entire organization from phishing, malware, and man-in-the-middle attacks
Nine of the top 10 tech companies, including Google, Facebook, and Salesforce.com, use Yubico’s authentication solutions to protect all of their employees from phishing, man-in-the-middle, and malware attacks. Yubico’s enterprise-wide solution, the YubiKey, combines both smart card and FIDO U2F capabilities in a single hardware-based authentication device.

Clients today demand a seamless digital onboarding experience that is high-quality, multi-channel and tailored to meet their needs.
Customers want simplified and unified interactions, but many advisors are still not interacting digitally. As organizations move to improve automation and eliminate the inherent inefficiencies in manual and paper processes, IT and business leaders are working to remove obstacles from the environment to deliver better onboarding processes and increased client satisfaction.
Join eSignLive and Appway for this 60 minute webinar on how technologies like e-signature and digital onboarding facilitate seamless client interactions, to empower employees and better serve customers.
As cloud continues to erase the network perimeter, it’s more important than ever to align IT infrastructure to track more closely to the businesses it serves.
As a result, gateway technology choices and investments need to fit the cloud model and fit in terms of security use case, value, and real-world business requirements.
Join Dan Cummins, analyst with 451 Research and Tim Chiu, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Symantec, for an informative webinar on August 2 to hear a discussion of network security today.
- Discussion on the increased dependence on HTTP and HTTPS
- The limitations of Firewalls in the web and cloud world
The increasing critical need for web gateways, both on premise and in the cloud, for achieving:
- Access governance for users and devices
- Verifiable protection against advanced attack methods
- Agile risk management and measurable return on investment.
Important opportunities are at hand right now to integrate network and cloud-based approaches to achieve coordinated and robust anti-malware, privacy, policy and connectivity capabilities, while continuing on a path to flexible, software-defined infrastructure.
Paper-related processes pose a significant cost to banks and are an inefficient use of employee time. E-signature solutions boost automation for banks, reducing errors and the costs incurred by these paper-dependent processes. Fifty-one percent of retail banking executives expect spending on electronic signature technology to increase over the next two years. Since nearly a quarter of banks that had digital technology in 2016 adopted it in the last two years, lessons can be learned from those that have already made the transition.*
However, it is not about the bottom line, in a recent study 42% of global customers preferred digital channels however 30% of customers opening an account online had to go to the branch to sign paperwork. Enabling digital account opening for customers with electronic signatures allows for a true end-to-end process. As consumers continue to incorporate digital interactions into their daily activities, retail banking executives have the opportunity to streamline their own processes to improve the customer journey across all delivery channels, including online, mobile, call center and modernizing the in-branch experience.
Watch this on-demand webinar with industry experts Nicole Sturgill of CEB and Rahim Kaba of eSignLive to uncover:
- Valuable insights gleaned from CEB’s latest retail banking report
- How consumers are banking now, including their preferred journeys for account opening and receiving customer support
- Features, capabilities, and requirements of best-in-class e-signature solutions
- Examples of how leading banks are incorporating e-signature across their branch, call center, online and mobile channels

“I would not want to be a merchant responsible for managing fraud today,” Spear told Karen Webster in a live online discussion on the topic held last week with an audience of online retailers. “It is a full-time job, 24/7/365, against constantly evolving threats.”
Ecommerce fraud losses have fallen 34.7% since Q1 2016, helped by machine learning and new services like Guaranteed Fraud Protection. However, merchants across eight major industry segments are still expected to lose $48.2 billion this year. And not all industries have improved. For example, online Department Stores saw fraud losses rise by 146.5% between Q1 2016 and Q1 2017. What’s changing, and what’s next? Hear directly from experts responsible for protecting over 5,000 e-commerce merchants globally.
In this webinar, we’ll show you real-life examples of the ways Yubico and Centrify provide context-based, adaptive authentication across enterprise users and resources. Across a wide range of use cases, Centrify and Yubico provide IT the flexibility to enforce security without user frustration.
Centrify Identity Service can leverage the easy-to-use, multi-function YubiKey for use cases such as:
-- Smart card AD-based login to Mac or Linux
-- Smart card login to Centrify’s cloud service for SSO, secure remote access, or administration
-- OATH OTP as a second factor for secure SSO to cloud apps
-- OATH OTP for MFA to privilege elevation on servers
-- Physical NFC token-based MFA for secure access to apps on mobile devices
We’ll show you secure, simple, scalable solutions that both admins and users love.
As a Salesforce admin, you can allow your users to authenticate with a YubiKey any time they’re challenged to verify their identity. Once provisioned, users simply insert and tap their YubiKey to complete verification. It’s a secure, convenient alternative to using Salesforce Authenticator or one-time passwords sent by email or SMS.
In this on-demand webinar, Itzik Koren (Salesforce) and Jerrod Chong (Yubico) demonstrate why it is important to activate U2F with single sign-on (SSO) on Salesforce.com, and the cost savings you can achieve with YubiKey as a hardware-based second factor.
Smart cards are highly secure and used globally in environments with enhanced security concerns and usability demands. However, smart cards are cost prohibitive for many organizations. The YubiKey changes that.

In an increasingly digitalised world, the value of information grows ever higher. Winning organisations – whether in financial services or any other vertical sector – will be those who can harness the power of data analytics to develop microscopic levels of insight and foresight into customer behaviours and operational activities in order to make progressive improvements on a continuous basis. Product development informed by factual evidence rather than educated guesswork, or real-time risk management based on a hyper-accurate picture of exposures, bring significant internal and external benefits.
However, while banks want to get closer to their customers, is the feeling mutual? Data privacy is a very sensitive issue, and the perception of what constitutes intrusion will likely vary between individuals. Institutions, therefore, need to walk a fine line between what’s genuinely useful and what’s genuinely creepy.
During this webinar, a panel of respected subject matter experts will discuss and dissect the key issues related to the widespread use of data analytics in financial services, identifying the obstacles which need to be overcome and the enablers that will drive FS forward successfully.
Financial Services companies rely on personal data for both their retail and business customers. Legislation and regulation, such as AMLD4, PSD2 and GDPR; both control and mandate its use.
How can FS companies manage and use the data effectively? Join this panel where we'll discuss the many new regulations coming up and what you should be doing as early as now to prepare your organisation and optimise your processes.
Big data, to date, has been focused on external drivers such as customer economics and market intelligence. To compete, market leaders must leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence to aggressively ingest and respond to both external and internal data-centric insights. There is no exception. FSI must both innovate and transform to stay relevant.
Today, Angelique Mohring discusses why FSIs must leverage AI to master the future by driving greater ROI on multi-million/billion dollar innovation and transformation spend.
Digital transformation is something that everybody wants to achieve, but not everyone can define.

Attendees will learn:
- What are the obstacles getting in the way of achieving digital transformation?
- Strategies to end the misalignment of business and IT on digital initiatives
- A roadmap to closing the IT delivery gap

Banking is changing! The emergence of digital technologies and fintech are supporting changes in the way consumers use these products/services, particularly millennials.
These new style banking services are becoming much more than simply a way to look at one's bank account, or to pay. They are becoming truly financial cockpits and watchtowers that consumers can use for a wide range of usages whenever, wherever whether it is to manage better their finance, pay and order on mobile commerce, transfer money between them, etc.
We will discuss the way they are transforming personal finance, how consumers change their usage patterns, what are the impacts, how startups innovate, how incumbents and new players are interacting, where are the truly disruptive services, etc.
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.
During this webinar, our panel of experts will discuss the following topics:
Quantifying the cost of manual, inefficient KYC checks and processes
Examining the impact of the latest AML regulations on financial institutions, payments processors, and lenders
How digital ID verification can help keep customer acquisition safe, compliant, and cost effective
Is it too late for incumbent banks to try and still win at the Relationship game, wow the consumer with addictive experience and become beloved brands? If we believe only new players will be able to do the above and many banks will become pipes - do they have a back-up business plan in place for that alternative?
Attend this panel debate where the speakers will discuss all this and more:
- What will banking look like in a post-PSD2 Europe and once Open banking models start to emerge? When will that be?
- Is banking culture one of the inhibitors of change and what can we do to change that?
- Define what "Invisible Banking" means to you and the consumer
- What role will Platforms play in this new world over the next few years?

Join our guest, Dr. Ted Marra as he introduces his new 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.
Digital transformation is increasingly becoming a major strategic issue for banks. They increasingly understand that digital is not just another distribution channel but a major change in their business models, functioning, cultures themselves with major impacts and demanding change programs across the whole business and value chains.
We will assess how these transformations are taking place, how do they impact the financial services sector, how the implementation of technologies such as blockchain are accelerating the transformation, where are the convergence and in particular how best startups and incumbents can work together.

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:
•Sheryl Kingstone, Director, 451 Research
•Sarah Johnson, Industry Solutions Architect, Kofax
•Jim Marous, Owner and Publisher, Digital Banking Report
