  • Focus on Fintech: Episode 4: The History and Future of Payments May 9 2017 3:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Eric Hazard, MD, Cognito and more TBC!
    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!
  • Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) and PSD2 - enabler or obstacle? May 9 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Kristian Sørensen (Norfico), Tim Richards (Consult Hyperion), Adam Kissane (Deloitte), Marten Nelson (Token)
    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?
  • Using Authentication and Identity Management to Secure a Financial Network May 9 2017 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Patrick Grillo, Senior Director, Security Solutions, Fortinet
    Using Authentication and Identity Management to Secure a Financial Network:
    The Door is Still Open and the Horse is Almost out of the Barn

    Carbanak. JP Morgan/Chase. Dyre Wolf. Bank of America. Bangladesh. Tesco Bank. This roll call should be proof enough of the attractiveness of the FSI to the hacker/cyber criminal community. While not all of them can be associated with Authentication and Identity Management issues, it’s undeniable that they have played a prominent role.

    An increased focus on authentication and identity management is a right step forward but just confirming a user’s identify is only half the task. With the concept of Zero Trust gaining momentum, authentication and identification must be reinforced by the network itself through policy based access and segmentation.

    This session will look back at some of the data breaches that have been attributed to weak authentication methods and how they might have been prevented. At the same time, the concept of internal network segmentation will be presented to show how both halves of the equation need to be brought together to effectively close off this common attack vector.
  • Redefining Cloud Security – Freedom. Visibility. Protection. May 9 2017 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Alex Kurz, Director, Sales Engineering, CensorNet
    Remember the days when IT had full control of which applications were used across your organisation? Today’s reality is that business moves faster than ever before, and teams need to be agile and able to easily collaborate together. How do organisations embrace the advantages of the cloud while keeping security and compliance tight?

    In this session we discuss:
    -How modern working practices might not be secured by traditional means
    -The scale of Shadow IT; even in organisations that have no ‘official’ cloud infrastructure
    -The risk posed by well-meaning employees and why modern authentication matters
  • Blockchain and Identity Rights: GDPR and Passwordless Authentication May 4 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ben Matthews (BCS Consulting), Taylor Gerring (Ethereum), Greg Jendroszczyk (Piwik PRO), George Wilson (Tallysticks)
    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?
  • Introduction to Pretotyping: Cutting-edge innovation with David Siegel Recorded: Apr 26 2017 54 mins
    David Siegel, Innovator, Investor, and Strategist
    Pretotyping is a growing technique for fast innovation, faster than developing an MVP. Pretotying is about doing the hardest part first, and the hardest part is almost always getting people to change their habits and try something new. Pretotyping allows you to experiment cheaply and look for market signals that you can then build into.

    In this one-hour webinar, you'll learn what pretotyping is, the six main forms, how to iterate quickly, and much more. You'll learn why pretotyping is usually better than building a prototype or an MVP, and how several of today's successful products came out of a pretotyping experiment. Applies equally to physical and digital products and services.

    This is for anyone interested in fast innovation: start-ups, marketers, intrapreneurs, product managers, and more. Pretotyping is a powerful tool that should be in every innovator's toolkit.

    David Siegel is a Silicon Valley serial entrepreneur living in Switzerland. He played a significant role in the development of the Worldwide Web, has written five books, and coaches startups. He is now leading an open-innovation company focused on blockchain and the decentralized economy.

  • Gamification to encourage saving Recorded: Apr 19 2017 61 mins
    Alex Kwiatkowski (Misys), Phill Gillespie (Money Dashboard), Morten Kriek (Moven)
    Having the discipline to set – and stick to – a budget is a hard task for many. Whether it’s because facing up to reality is sobering, or that the task at hand produces feelings of unbearable ennui, there’s considerable scope for improvement among customers when it comes to planning their short, medium and long-term financial futures.

    In a world where the population is both growing and living longer, actions need to be taken which encourage saving and help people to live within their means. Fortunately, this is a world which is increasingly connected, where technological innovations make the previously difficult become easy: the gamification of financial services for instance.

    During this webinar, a panel of opinionated experts will discuss – and doubtless disagree in an entertaining manner – as to how gamification potentially makes life easier for customers and the firms which they maintain relationships with. Bye-bye boring budgets, it’s time to welcome a new era of financial responsibility.
  • Data Science in Modern Banking Recorded: Apr 13 2017 45 mins
    Charlie Leahy, Head of Software Architecture and Data Science (Hufsy)
    Banks have a vast wealth of mineable data available to them, but traditionally have provided their customers with little feedback beyond a balance and list of transactions.

    In this talk Charles Leahy, Tech Lead at Hufsy, looks at ways in which tools such as visualisation and machine learning can be employed to give users meaningful insights, helping them make the most of their money.
  • AI Deep Learning for Banks Recorded: Apr 11 2017 38 mins
    Bhagvan Kommadi, CEO, Architect Corner
    As businesses begin to rely more on data-driven Artificial Intelligence applications, the new applications lead to new business issues, security, and privacy concerns. Each bank also needs to have a transparent system for total audit-ability so one can see who did what, and when. Bank can use AI Deep Learning techniques to identify erroneous or incomplete data to avoid misleading decisions.The new AI applications introduce a number of business, security and privacy issues which will have to be addressed. Neural Network, Natural Language Processing, Image Recognition, Speech Recognition and Sentimental Analysis techniques are Deep Learning techniques used in Banks and Financial Services. AI Deep Learning techniques are used to help with anti-money laundering programs, know-your-customer checks, sanctions list monitoring, billing fraud oversight or other general compliance functions, artificial intelligence can:

    - Improve efficiency
    - Weed out false-positive results
    - Reduce costs and increase profits.
    - Make better use of workers’ time and company resources
    - Help banks handle their compliance monitoring
    - Automate some legal and regulatory work

  • Measuring the qualitative – or how tech can save financial services from itself Recorded: Apr 6 2017 60 mins
    Jane Walshe (Enforcd), Malcolm Wright (Thomson Reuters), Mathias Wegmueller (Qumram), Jason Boud (RegTech Forum)
    2017 is shaping up to be the year in which RegTech catches up with FinTech and the sector is brimming with innovative ideas that can help regulated firms address regulatory requirements in an efficient and cost effective way.

    But how good is this technology, really? Can everything that is promised be delivered? At it’s best, RegTech can help firms to price and quantify the risks around a firm having a poor culture, and technology can solve problems of capturing qualitative concepts, such as behaviour and culture, and embedding these in to a firm's operational/conduct risk model.

    In this discussion, Jane Walshe of Enforcd is joined by other RegTech pioneers to discuss what RegTech can do, and also possible pitfalls to be avoided in its use.
