    • Better Anti Money Laundering (AML) Compliance with Hortonworks
      Better Anti Money Laundering (AML) Compliance with Hortonworks Vamsi K Chemitiganti, General Manager - Financial Services, Hortonworks Recorded: Nov 24 2015 3:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • In 2015, it goes without saying that Banking is an increasingly complex as well as a global business. Leading Banks now generate a large amount of revenue in Global markets and this is generally true of all major worldwide banks. Financial crime is a huge concern for banking institutions given the complexity of the products they offer their millions of customers, large global branch networks and operations spanning the spectrum of financial services. The BSA (Bank Secrecy Act) requires U.S. financial institutions to assist U.S. government agencies to detect and prevent money laundering. Specifically, the act requires financial institutions to keep records of cash purchases of negotiable instruments, to file reports of cash transactions exceeding $10,000 (daily aggregate amount), and to report suspicious activity that might signify money laundering, tax evasion, or other criminal activities. After the terrorist attacks of 2001, the US Patriot Act was passed into law by Congress. The Patriot Act augments the BSA with Know Your Customer (KYC) legislation which mandates that Banking institutions be completely aware of their customer’s identities and transaction patterns with a view of monitoring account activity. This webinar discusses the key business issues and technology considerations in moving your AML regime to a Hadoop based infrastructure and the key benefits in doing so.

    • How to Stop Wasting Money and Start Managing Cybersecurity
      How to Stop Wasting Money and Start Managing Cybersecurity Shay Zandani, CEO, Cytegic Recorded: Jan 21 2015 9:00 am UTC 40 mins
    • In today’s world, decision-makers are overwhelmed by the sheer amount of cyber-threat information and cyber-security technologies available.

      CISOs who are tasked with securing business assets in face of rapidly evolving threats, find themselves with insufficient capability to measure the effectiveness and efficiency of their organization security apparatus and equipped with inadequate tools for determining optimal resource allocation, while constantly having to display the risk levels posed by cyber threats to the organizations’ management. It is nearly impossible to estimate if money spent on one technology could have had better security and business impact invested elsewhere.

      This Webinar will present the challenging state of affairs today and will suggest how to remedy the situation using automation, analytical tools and intelligence forecasting and simulation.

    • Blockchain For Identity Authentication Infrastructure
      Blockchain For Identity Authentication Infrastructure Professor Michael Mainelli, FCCA FCSI FBCS (Z/Yen Group Limited) Upcoming: Mar 14 2017 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    • Mutual distributed ledger (MDL) identity schemes could empower people with personal data storage and management, permission frameworks for access by third parties such as banks insurers or governments, and even distributed reputation ratings.

      Such applications could reduce financial fraud, costs, and crime, and increase returns, confidence, and security. MDLs are uniquely supportive of controlled distribution and sharing of digitally-signed documentation and could form the backbone to identity and authentication systems worldwide. In fact, some claim that identity authentication infrastructure is the ‘killer app’ for MDLs rather than payments.

      While anti-money-laundering/know-your-customer/ultimate-beneficial-ownership processes are arduous for high-net-worth individuals, about 2.4 billion poor people worldwide lack official identification, about 1.5 billion over the age of 14.

      This webinar will examine how MDLs might aid both rich and poor.

      Stopping Data Breaches: Show me the money Dave Finger, Director of Product Marketing, Fortinet Recorded: Jun 3 2015 3:00 pm UTC 40 mins
    • Yes, there are annual studies that calculate the cost of the average data breach. And yes, within weeks of a major data breach the headlines shift from number of records lost to estimated cost. So it is unsurprising, if troubling, that a recent survey of enterprise executives indicated that the #1 thing they are most concerned about protecting from cyber attack is customer data. However, there are other important aspects to making a business case for improving your security posture. This webcast will discuss what we feel you should be concerned about losing and why…and it’s not just customer records that require costly breach notification.

    • Financial institutions from all over the world are facing increasingly strict regulations regarding the verification and authentication of their customers’ identity. The imminent enforcement of the 4AMLD and the publication of the 5AMLD will nothing but add pressure on the financial services industry.

      To keep a competitive edge and still be compliant with the latest Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations, banks, prepaid card operators, digital currency processors, exchanges, and wallets are being compelled to embrace the digitalisation of traditionally cumbersome processes such as customer due diligence and ongoing authentication.

      Aiming to simplify KYC in this ever-changing regulatory environment, and optimizing the digital channels for further security and convenience, financial institutions need to successfully achieve this change within their policies, procedures, business models, and technology infrastructures.

      During this webinar, our panel of experts will provide answers to the following questions:

      •Are the technologies to underpin digital identity verification reliable and robust enough for financial institutions to rely on them?

      •Are customers prepared to go down the digital route?

      •Can financial institutions strike the right balance between rock-solid compliance, and smooth, easy, digital customer experience?

      •How are financial institutions coping with the challenges posed by the latest regulatory updates?
