    * How are banks and other financial institutions reacting?

    * Is the use of social media for two-way communication in financial services a reality today?

    * What are the compliance and risk challenges associated with social media usage; how can they be mitigated?

    * Which financial institutions are leading the way?

    * Should banks build their own social platforms to avoid compliance and control issues?

  • Blockchain and Identity Rights: GDPR and Passwordless Authentication
    Blockchain and Identity Rights: GDPR and Passwordless Authentication Ben Matthews (BCS Consulting), Taylor Gerring (Ethereum), Greg Jendroszczyk (Piwik PRO), George Wilson (Tallysticks) May 4 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The discussion of data and identity rights is not a new one. However, with the upcoming GDPR in May 2018, the questions on the future of self-sovereignty are on the rise.

    Blockchain technology has been predicted to become a major gamechanger to how we address security concerns with data protection and authentication. With banks and other financial institutions holding some very precious data, it has never been more apt than now, to discuss the challenges head-on.

    Join this panel where experts will tackle:

    -How is Blockchain securing the Internet?
    -Biometrics vs password authentication
    -Should users have full control of their identity?
    -How can Blockchain help with KYC/AML challenges?
    -The Impact of GDPR on the Financial Services community: How do banks and FinTech start-ups prepare?
  • Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) and PSD2 - enabler or obstacle?
    Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) and PSD2 - enabler or obstacle? Kristian Sørensen (Norfico), Tim Richards (Consult Hyperion), Adam Kissane (Deloitte), Marten Nelson (Token) May 9 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    With the new European Payment Service Directive (PSD2) the most talked about topics are the new access to account (XS2A) options that Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISPs) and Account Information Service Providers (AISPs) will get. But as the Directive not only aims to open the banking infrastructure to foster innovation but at the same time it also aims to increase security and reduce fraud.

    To achieve this ambition new requirements for the use of Strong User Authentication (SCA) play a central role of the Directive. The Commission have given the European Banking Authority (EBA) the responsibility to develop Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) for SCA. The process has involved discussion papers, 250+ comments from different parties and by the end of February, the "final draft" version of the SCA RTS was published.

    The panel will make sense of the alphabet soup of acronyms and discuss the requirements, the interpretations and the implications of SCA and the RTS.

    *What is SCA?
    *How can SCA be done?
    *Who must do SCA?
    *Who can do SCA?
    *How will SCA impact transactions and commerce?

    Focus on Fintech: Episode 4: The History and Future of Payments Eric Hazard, MD, Cognito and more TBC! May 9 2017 3:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    You order an Uber through your phone. You get in, complete your ride, get out and say goodbye. You don't even take out a credit card or cash anymore but you know it's been paid for. So how does it work? Is it safe? And what's the future of our financial interactions?

    Uber and many other Fintechs have taken the interaction out of transactions but it's often unclear how they actually work, and many of them still reply on a traditional bank. So we've sent Eric Hazard to discover the ins, outs and dirty secrets of your favorite taxi apps, food delivery hubs and fintechs!
  • Biometrics - Creepy or Not? Debunking the Top 5 Myths About Biometrics
    Biometrics - Creepy or Not? Debunking the Top 5 Myths About Biometrics Bianca Lopes, VP Business Development and Strategic Marketing at BioConnect May 9 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    I live in the world of biometrics and when I tell people what I do, they generally come back with two different reactions:
    1) That’s really cool and innovative, or
    2) That’s really creepy...

    In this webinar, I will address many of the common myths and misconceptions surrounding biometric technology. I will explain why this technology is so ground breaking and how when done properly it can make our world safer, more efficient and more user friendly.

    Common Myths and Concerns We Will Address:
    Does James Bond or Minority Report do a good job of portraying biometrics? Seems creepy...
    Is using biometrics safe? -- Are you using my real fingerprint? How do you protect the user?
    Do biometrics even work very well?
    Is one biometric type “better” than others?
    If I take on this new technology I’m afraid it will be outdated in 5 years, but I’m tied to it
  • Synthetic Identity: The Achilles Heel of Fintech and Cybersecurity
    Synthetic Identity: The Achilles Heel of Fintech and Cybersecurity Richard Parry, Consultant and Risk Manager, Parry Advisory May 9 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The system of identity in use for over 40 years in the U.S. and much of the West evolved as a necessary adjunct to managing consumer credit. As with credit management, it is a risk-based system in which identity is inferred from the consistency of people's data.

    Fintech – in general terms - is an enabler that is liberating speed, accuracy, and fidelity in many aspects of finance and payments and beyond. With it has come advances in biometric authentication that are successfully addressing account takeover and creating consumer identity, but are also driving a surge in synthetic identity as criminals seek to counter enroll directly in products, services, and access credentials.

    Join Consultant and Risk Expert Richard Parry as he discusses:
    - What synthetic identity is
    - Why it is so insidious,
    - Why it should be a priority for those seeking certainty and accuracy in fintech.

    We cannot assume that an identity that passed a bank’s Know Your Customer (KYC) controls is accurate or real.

    About Richard Parry:
    Richard is a career risk manager whose work spanned the globe in service to Visa International, Citigroup, and JPMorgan Chase. Specifically, his corporate executive responsibilities were over-seeing fraud operations, fraud policy, customer authentication and identity management. Entrepreneurially, he co-founded Turnkey Risk Solutions, a Delaware-based risk management company that applied specialized analytical science to identify instances when synthetic identities perpetrated first-party fraud.

    Currently, Richard’s Parry Advisory applies clear-thinking on identity, cyber and other risks. He works to enable clients to achieve desired outcomes through a structured methodology for discerning and factoring proofs over perception; knowledge-based decision-making instead of risk-based decision-making. Crucially, he eschews indignation for the thoughtful analysis of cause, effect, and remedy. Richard does not drink proverbial Kool-Aid.

  • The Hidden Security Risks of Mobile & Mobility in Financial Services
    The Hidden Security Risks of Mobile & Mobility in Financial Services Domingo Guerra, President & Co-founder of Appthority May 11 2017 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Financial Services enterprises and quickly moving into the 21st century and adopting the BYOD, enterprise mobility and mobile workforce mentality. But with this they are unknowingly increasing the risks their companies face, creating thousands of new end-points with the potential for breaches, hacks and compromises.

    Mobility teams can manage devices through EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) software, but these platforms only go so far. Fully securing an environment from the hidden risks embedded deep in applications, and real time threats from compromised network connections and devices are threats that require a new Mobile Threat Defense strategy (as outlined by Gartner) including state of the art automation and machine learning. But how could, and should you implement this - and where do you start?

    Join Domingo Guerra, President & Co-Founder of Appthority as he discusses how Fortune 1000 financial services companies are implementing measures to solve their mobile device challenges. In this session Domingo will cover:

    - How to gain visibility of your mobile risks
    - How leading financial services companies secure mobile use, while maintaining productivity and privacy
    - How to get additional value from an existing EMM deployment while adding security coverage.
