  • Cultivating Your Strategic and Creative Thinking
    Cultivating Your Strategic and Creative Thinking Dr. Ted Marra Oct 18 2017 2:00 pm UTC 75 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.

  • 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.

  • Building a Digital Banking Platform with APIs
    Building a Digital Banking Platform with APIs Angie Campos, Industry Marketing for FS&I, MuleSoft; Michel Vaja, Head of UK Payments Practice, Capgemini Oct 31 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    More and more financial institutions are partnering with FinTechs and leveraging Application Program Interfaces (APIs) to attract new prospects and to delight current consumers through unprecedented Customer Experience (CX). APIs offer a bridge between systems while paving a digital path to a connected financial ecosystem.

    The institutions that are able to drive this digital transformation successfully, do not think of these capabilities as additional channels and services. Rather, these institutions understand that they must move from a vision of banking as a physical network of branches and ATMs, to a digital platform, comprising core capabilities such as account servicing and the provision of financial products that can be accessed wherever, and whenever, customers wish.

    Join this webinar and learn how these institutions are building a digital banking platform with APIs.

  • Digitized identity verification - the future of ID & KYC
    Digitized identity verification - the future of ID & KYC Sarah Clark, General Manager- Identity, Mitek Systems, Mike Montemarano, KYC Officer and Onboarding Specialist JP Morgan 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.
  • The Rise of RegTech and why it's the next big thing in banking

  • Top cyber threats in the financial sector
    Top cyber threats in the financial sector Candid Wueest, Principal Threat Researcher, Symantec Nov 16 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Financial institutions are increasingly facing attacks on multiple fronts.

    Cyber criminals continue to target online banking using malware to hijack customer transactions and banking sessions. While there has been an overall drop in infections related to these consumer threats, financial institutions are now facing new types of attacks in the form of large-scale financial heists.

    Attack groups such as Fin7 and Lazarus are deliberately targeting financial institutions in audacious attacks that are reaping large rewards. They are using living off the land and fileless attack tactics similar to APT groups. But also extortion with DDoS attacks or business email compromise (BEC) scams are increasingly bothering financial corporations.

    In this webcast on the current financial threat landscape, Symantec takes a look at the most prevalent and significant financial threats.

    In this webcast we will review:
    - The top threats facing financial institutions with statistics and examples
    - Explore the most common techniques employed in financial attacks
    - Provide case studies of the most high-profile financial attacks of the past 12 months
  • Looking forward, Looking Back: How Financial Institutions Can Do More With Less
    Looking forward, Looking Back: How Financial Institutions Can Do More With Less David Daniel, VP, Banc Intranets, Darren Bridges, CEO of Safe Systems, Terry Ammons, Systems Partner for Porter Keadle Moore Nov 16 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Financial institutions are constantly adapting to the needs of their customers and identifying new and innovative ways to streamline internal processes, while also improving how their employees work on a day-to-day basis.

    But, the challenge of operating within an aggressively competitive financial services environment has forced both large and small institutions to cut back on spending and decide what’s necessary vs what isn’t. From the number of brick and mortar branches to the sheer number of employees a bank is able to hire, bank executives are forced to make tough decisions in order to maintain stable profit margins.

    So how are modern financial institutions coping and adapting to this highly competitive environment? Largely, bank leaders are utilizing new technologies such as electronic form creation and submission, analytics and ticket systems as a way to streamline internal processes and reduce waste. But this begs the question, how does one identify the best available technology at the right price point?

  • Managing Security and Risk for Digital Transformation in Financial Services
    Managing Security and Risk for Digital Transformation in Financial Services Nicholle Lindner, Industry Director; Ashwin Pal, Director Security Services; Ian Selbie, Solution Director, Unisys Nov 30 2017 3:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Consumers are enjoying a rapidly expanding choice of how, when and where they bank. However, banks must now manage the extra responsibilities and risks these new channels bring.

    In APAC, the Unisys Security Index™ revealed consumers are more concerned about bankcard fraud, ID theft and cyber security than about physical threats like the threat of war/terrorism and natural disasters.

    So how can banks balance the need to digitally transform, maintain privacy and security but still provide a seamless, personalized and trustworthy customer experience?

    We will cover:
     The 10 steps banks need to take to get digital transformation right, and how to improve customer experience and trust during this journey.

     How the CISO’s office can be part of the digital transformation journey, embedding security as part of the development lifecycle from the start as a value added component and not a burden as an afterthought.

     Innovative technologies like predictive analytics and biometrics can help provide a seamless, frictionless experience for customers. But how can they be applied without seeming invasive?

    Speakers:
    Nicholle is an experienced senior financial services executive with almost 20 yrs experience working in financial institutions and corporates. She has extensive knowledge across financial services, payments, consumer and business banking, IT, analytics, marketing and strategy. 

    Ashwin is an experienced and qualified CISO responsible for running the delivery of the security business within the APAC region. He is also responsible for leading and delivering security engagements to C level executives ensuring the successful delivery of client security programs.

    Ian Selbie is responsible for Unisys Financial Industry solutions in APAC focused on enhancing business processes and compliance in financial institutions including omnichannel, financial crime prevention, enterprise payments and case management solutions.
