    The new GDPR requires businesses to report data breaches within 72 hours – how will you manage the process?

    In a crisis, being organized and informed enough to provide an accurate notification to affected customers (or indeed regulators) is a difficult task on its own.

  • Mastering Operational Risk. Theory and Practice in a single package.
    Mastering Operational Risk. Theory and Practice in a single package. Boris Agranovich, Calvin Lee Jun 27 2017 2:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Join me and our guest, Calvin Lee, Operations Director at RISKID, for a lively discussion as we aim to dispel confusion surrounding many of the elements of the Operational Risk framework.


    Operational risk is perhaps the most significant risk organizations face. Virtually every major loss that has taken place during the past 30 years, from Enron, Worldcom and Baring's Bank to the unauthorized trading incident at Société Générale and the subprime credit crisis, has been driven by operational failures.

    Many financial institutions have spent millions of dollars trying to develop a robust framework for measuring and managing operational risk. Yet, in spite of this huge investment, for many firms developing a viable operational risk management (ORM) program remains an elusive goal.

    This webinar is designed for both current students of the “Mastering Operational Risk” - http://www.globalriskacademy.com/p/orm online course and for other busy risk professionals who are interested in studying both theoretical and practical application of ORM but don’t have time to attend in-person classes.

    The goal is three-fold:

    1. Existing students will be able to understand more on how to work with the RISKID tool and get an opportunity to ask questions about the subject matter.
    2. People who are planning to join the course will get some explanation in what is the course about, how the e-learning system works.
    3. People who are just interested to know more about ORM

    During the webinar we will cover:

    1. 3 things most organizations are focusing on right now.
    2. What are the major steps to take control of operational risks.
    3. How to use Collaborative Risk Management tools to conduct your ORM operations and why traditional risk management practices involving risk registers and Excel are not effective anymore.

    Catalyst Accelerator for Banking: How to Get Started with Open Banking and PSD2 David Chao, Head of Industry Solutions, MuleSoft Jul 6 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The mandate for digital transformation in financial services is clear. The question that IT leaders must answer is not "if", but "how?"

    In particular, how should financial services organizations respond to the competitive threat, and opportunity, that Open Banking and PSD2 presents? How should IT leaders think about internal vs external API strategies? How should they think about security, regulation, and even compliance? And how should they think about re-use to drive greater agility and increase time to market?

    Drawing on its work with 5 of the top 10 global banks, MuleSoft has developed Catalyst Accelerator for Banking, a set of API designs and supporting reference implementations, that codify integration best practices with a focus on account information, payments initiation and legacy modernization use cases.

  • Why are Behavioral Biometrics So Popular Now?
    Why are Behavioral Biometrics So Popular Now? Andras Cser, Forrester Research and Uri River, BioCatch Jul 13 2017 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The history of behavioral biometrics, the measurement of patterns relating to human activity, goes back to the 1860s, with the invention of the telegraph and the recognizable ways people would send dash and dot signals. Today’s behavioral biometrics, though, go way beyond, looking at multiple data and end point interactions to prevent new account fraud and provide continuous authentication after login. As more and more applications move online and consumers demand that the availability of functions in their digital worlds match their physical worlds, the popularity of behavioral biometrics has continued to grow. Join guest speaker Andras Cser from Forrester Research and Uri Rivner, Head of Cyber Strategy at BioCatch for an engaging discussion on what makes this modality so popular and effective in meeting today’s cybersecurity challenges.

    In addition, financial industry executives will gain key insights on:

    - How behavioral biometrics drive the 3 F’s – less fraud, less friction, more functionality - online

    - The ways that behavioral biometrics satisfy risk-based authentication requirements

    - How behavioral biometrics work with other technologies to provide strong authentication and protect against today’s cyberthreats like malware, social engineering and Remote Access Trojans.

    - Current trends in fraud and new areas for the use of behavioral biometrics

  • How AI, Data & Analytics are Changing Financial Services
    How AI, Data & Analytics are Changing Financial Services Solon Angel, Founder & Chief Strategy Officer, Mindbridge AI Jul 19 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In the recent years, financial services have made a significant investment in the big data infrastructures but have yet to see adequate returns on applying analytics to them. Artificial intelligence and machine learning bring new capacities regarding data discovery and advanced anomaly detection while helping finance professionals create new efficient workflows around data discovery. The real value of AI is in uncovering new patterns and fully leveraging big-data. By applying fast, AI empowered analytics against data structures, the return on the value of IT investment is quickly realized.

    Technological breakthroughs like Artificial Intelligence is having a disproportionate effect on financial services. It has the potential to introduce new sources of growth and is already changing how work is done. With its advanced self-learning algorithms, it is enhancing the professional judgment of finance professionals in finding “needle in a haystack” fraud attempts and material misstatements that otherwise would go unnoticed with antiquated approaches.

    This webinar is intended to help you understand that Ai and autonomous systems are affecting major aspects of financial services. These technologies are well poised to give a never-before advantage to financial institutions.

  • Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues
    Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues Alex Kwiatkowski (Misys), Peter Jackson (Southern Water) Jul 20 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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.
