  • Transforming Financial Services IAM with Biometric Authentication
    Transforming Financial Services IAM with Biometric Authentication John Spencer, Chief Product Officer, Veridium | Ross Penny, Global Head of Sales Engineering, Veridium Recorded: Jun 21 2018 60 mins
    Financial services have always done identity management. It began as the teller or manager knowing each customer. Next came signature matching, passbooks, and – if you had a lock box in a vault – a key. These systems were inflexible and inconvenient on purpose. With the advent of the computer age, these organizations simply adopted the digital analogs of these physical systems: PINs and passwords. These increased flexibility – a customer or employee could access an account at any time from practically anywhere – but sacrificed security for the sake of convenience. To be secure, PINs and passwords need to be long, complex, and changed regularly: Three things customers have no interest in.

    Today, identity management is undergoing a revolutionary change as biometrics allow companies to combine the convenience people want with the security that both people and organizations need. Learn how three financial services companies from across the world, a private investment firm, a prominent Swiss bank, and a major trading organization, have deployed a biometric authentication platform as part of their identity and access management strategy. Veridium’s Chief Product Officer, John Spencer, will explore the key factors that make up a secure biometric authentication platform, and Global Head of Sales Engineering, Ross Penny, will discuss the details of deploying within different environments.

    In this webinar we’ll discuss:
    • Using enterprise-ready solutions to replace passwords with multi-factor biometric authentication – including 4 Fingers TouchlessID, face recognition, and touch recognition – for employee and customer access.
    • Maintaining a highly secure-yet-convenient user experience across any channel: ATM, app, and personal computer.
    • Providing users with fast, easy, and seamless enrollment and verification.
  • Will data privacy kill innovation?
    Will data privacy kill innovation? Olivier Penel, EMEA Data Management Business Director, SAS Recorded: Jun 21 2018 24 mins
    This session is taken from In:Confidence 2018, where Olivier Penel debated whether privacy will one day kill innovation.

    On one side, the dramatic breakthrough and widespread adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies create many opportunities for companies to innovate and to create value with data.

    On the other side, increased privacy concerns and regulations bring new standards and rules in the way personal data should be used.

    His insightful session covered questions such as:

    - What will be the impact of the GDPR on data-driven innovative projects?

    - How can organisations use GDPR as a catalyst to accelerate their digital transformation journey and boost innovation?

    GDPR has now come into effect, but how will it affect innovation moving forwards? Tune in to find out.
  • Why Cloud Adoption is Different in Europe?
    Why Cloud Adoption is Different in Europe? Carla Arend and Angela Vacca Recorded: Jun 20 2018 41 mins
    The common wisdom is that cloud adoption in Europe is trailing behind the US and that we will eventually “get there”.

They will outline the technical, cultural and geopolitical reasons for why cloud adoption is different and how different industry verticals are adopting cloud.

  • How well is your sanctions compliance process working?
    How well is your sanctions compliance process working? Huntswood, SWIFT Recorded: Jun 14 2018 60 mins
    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.

    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

    - Optimise global and internal list management
    - Upgrade your screening platforms without disrupting business operations

  • Why Smart Cities Must Embrace Decentralization: The Case for Blockchain Cities
    Why Smart Cities Must Embrace Decentralization: The Case for Blockchain Cities David LEE Kuo Chuen (BlockAsset Ventures & LeftCoast) Boyd Cohen (EADA Business School and IoMob) Recorded: Jun 13 2018 61 mins
    The concept of smart cities has evolved greatly in the past decade. One common trend we have noticed is the growing appreciate for active citizen engagement and contribution towards smarter, more efficient and happier cities.

    At the same time there are competing models for the role of technology in society: proprietary, venture capital-backed and frequently extractive (Web 2.0) versus open, co-creative and decentralized (Web 3.0).

    In this webinar, blockchain professors and entrepreneurs, David Lee and Boyd Cohen will explore the myriad of reasons why a blockchain approach to the evolution of cities is the superior choice for improving quality of life, ensuring resilience and for enabling urban innovation.

  • LIVE DEMO - Securing your Open Banking API implementation
    LIVE DEMO - Securing your Open Banking API implementation Isabelle Mauny, CTO & Co-Founder, 42Crunch Recorded: Jun 7 2018 62 mins
    .During this practical webinar, you will learn:
        
    1. Why TLS and OAuth2 are not enough to secure your APIs
    API Security has a much wider spectrum and even if you are using OAuth today, you may not use it in a way that is adapted to the risk taken when exposing Open banking APIs. What about API attacks protection ? PKCE ? Message confidentiality and integrity ? 

    2. Why API security must be declared and not coded
    Developers should not have to master security standards such as OAuth and OpenID Connect and try to implement them properly into their APIs. Instead, they should rely on proven, reliable policies approved by the bank’s security team and simply apply those policies on top of their APIs.

    3. How declarative security helps with consistency and automation
    42Crunch's innovative tagging mechanisms can be used by developers to express security constraints on top of their Open API definitions (aka Swagger). Those tags are translated automatically, either via the UI or in the CI/CD pipeline into policies which are applied on APIs requests/responses, making it possible to apply security as early as possible in the API lifecycle and find security vulnerabilities early.

    4. How to enforce security in a scalable way using micro-firewalls
    We will show how to deploy the 42Crunch API Firewall at run-time whether on premises, in the Cloud or in a hybrid environment and how to monitor the system through real-time security dashboards.
