  • Blockchain adoption, management, and application Oct 19 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Atif Farid Mohammad & Waseem Ahmed
    In today’s complex environment organizations are embarking on Digital Transformation journey. Compared to existing systems, blockchains are faster, cheaper, more reliable, and much more secure. For example, in healthcare, patients often have medical history scattered among various medical records maintained in several health-care establishments. The data is available only in the scope of those specific systems. Having a Blockchain Medical Profile to store an individual’s medical profile that is accessible from anywhere at the time of need. This omnipresence of the medical data will be a boon for the field of medical informatics.

    Similarly, in financial institutions, transactions that happens within and among financial institutions can be delivered, provided immediately, shared, and completely transparent stored on an immutable ledger via Blockchain technology.

    The faster the information is received and the more accurate it is, the better. Blockchain is ideal for delivering that information because it provides immediate, shared and completely transparent information stored on an immutable ledger that can be accessed only by permissioned network members. Blockchain technology and its infrastructure (hardware, software, and facilities, connectivity, mobility, performance, and security and such can be easily deployed and managed using ITIL best practices.

  • A vCISO´s UX Advice: Security and Privacy or Usability is a False Trade-off Recorded: Aug 26 2021 42 mins
    Frank Satterwhite, Founder & Cyber Security Principal at 1600 Cyber
    Consumer trust in an organisation has never been so critical. In this session we will show the importance of balancing security and usability to increase protections and build & reinforce customer trust from minute 1. The mantra “if it is not usable, it is not secure” should be embraced by every team designing security solutions and “if it is not secure, it won’t build trust” should apply to teams involved in designing their customers’ experience.
    Finding that balance is key to making customers feel safe, a safety that builds loyalty and trust, which can become a competitive advantage for any organisation.

  • Using Agile Data Governance to Minimize Financial Risk Recorded: Aug 24 2021 31 mins
    Mariana Hebborn, IT Strategie & Governance at Viridium Group
    Regulatory and compliance are associated with long boring documentation. The same applies to the topic of data governance. Data governance is often reduced to boring rules, policies and standards no one wants to read. A description that fits compliance to a tee. But regulation is used to try to minimize risks and both data governance and compliance requirements are at the heart of all data management activities and can be executed as highly exciting practice-based disciplines.

    Authority, control and joint decision-making as planning, monitoring and enforcement have no place in static text documents. These are practices for reducing risk and thus an essential part of regulatory requirements. How about docking them to the data and organizing them as a data asset, manageable and observable at any time? This is exactly what the talk is about: getting out of the dull regulatory environment into data-driven agile data governance in order to mitigate risk in financial data.
