With every transaction, merchants are learning more and more about their customers. And with those learnings come data and lots of it - a breach of that payments data is a nightmare for any merchant. Consumers are trusting you with their sensitive data, and losing that trust also equates to lost business. Is security simply a must-do, or can you turn it into a competitive advantage for your business? Listen in to information security and cybersecurity experts in the payments space as they discuss the minimum requirements as well as the next steps you can take to create a better customer experience while maintaining the highest levels of security.
Some questions we'll answer:
- What is the burden on merchants to maintain compliance?
- How are current security measures causing friction in the payments experience?
- What are some tokenization options for merchants?
- What are other measures past the minimum security requirements that will elevate your business?

With sensitive data residing everywhere, organizations becoming more mobile, and the breach epidemic growing, the need for advanced data privacy and security solutions has become even more critical. French regulators cited GDPR in fining Google $57 million and the U.K.'s Information Commissioner's Office is seeking a $230 million fine against British Airways and seeking $124 million from Marriott. Facebook is setting aside $3 billion to cover the costs of a privacy investigation launched by US regulators.
This session will take a practical approach to address guidance and standards from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), EU GDPR, California CCPA, NIST Risk Management Framework, COBIT and the ISO 31000 Risk management Principles and Guidelines.
Learn how new data privacy and security techniques can help with compliance and data breaches, on-premises, and in public and private clouds.

Charles Delingpole, CEO & Founder ComplyAdvantageFeb 27 20201:00 pmUTC46 mins
There’s much hype and excitement around how AI and machine learning could transform the world of finance. But a key area of development growing behind the scenes of talking robots and automated assistants is how these new technologies will have a seismic impact on Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-terror Financing (CTF) back-end compliance processes. AI can dramatically improve AML risk data collection; spotting new risks faster and digging deeper for hidden risks.
It will also shift customer onboarding & KYC processes from ‘name matching’ to contextual ‘identity matching’ to reduce false positives and false negatives. Unlike other industries, the training data required to make this a reality with machine learning techniques are available today.
AI-driven compliance will ultimately have an enormous impact on how financial services will work - increasing automation, reducing manual overheads and helping prevent financial crime.
Presented by Charles Delingpole, CEO & Founder ComplyAdvantage
Charles Delingpole founded ComplyAdvantage in 2014, and as CEO leads the product development and growth of the company. Charles set up his first company, The Student Room Group, now the world’s largest student discussion forum, when he was 16. After completing his MA in Politics at Trinity College Cambridge, and then an MSc in Management, Strategy and Finance from the LSE, he became an associate at J.P. Morgan Cazenove. He then went on to co-found FinTech firm MarketInvoice, a peer -to - peer financing company which uses customer data to digitise the approach to financial risk analysis.

Wealth management is a business that has been built on a history of personal relationships, a deep understanding of clients and the allure of personalised service. Historically, however, that model has been highly dependent on individuals, and particularly advisers, while the role of technology in the process of engaging clients has been limited to tools such as CRM and basic client portals. Truly using modern technology tools to support and enhance the process of client engagement is still emerging and fighting for acceptance.
In a changing and more complex environment, where the expectations of clients are higher, when they are more used to be engaged through technology, content, personalised offerings and more, the wealth management sector must look to further work with new technology-led and enabled ways to support its client engagement. Can the sector remain human-dominated in the way it engages its prospects and clients? Can the adoption of technology enhance the business opportunity?
Surely, an increased use of technology to support client engagement makes sense as it allows wealth managers new ways to reach and create value from their prospects and clients.
In this webinar, you will hear from various market expert vendors who can offer the wealth management space new ways of thinking about the opportunity they can access from using technology to enhance the client engagement process. The discussion will consider:
•What the benefits are of taking a more technology-enabled approach to client engagement
•How does the wealth manager go about really understanding what the customer requires?
•Why does this vary from wealth manager to wealth manager?
•To what extent should we be looking at overhauling the entire experience vs simply digitising it?
•What are the key challenges and how can they be overcome?
