  • Safeguarding Customer and Financial Data in Analytics and Machine Learning Feb 24 2021 10:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ulf Mattsson, Chief Security Strategist, Protegrity
    Digital Transformation and the opportunities to use data in Analytics and Machine Learning are growing exponentially, but so too are the business and financial risks in Data Privacy. The increasing number of privacy incidents and data breaches are destroying brands and customer trust, and we will discuss how business prioritization can be benefit from a finance-based data risk assessment (FinDRA).

    More than 60 countries have introduced privacy laws and by 2023, 65% of the world’s population will have its personal information covered under modern privacy regulations. We will discuss use cases in financial services that are finding a balance between new technology impact, regulatory compliance, and commercial business opportunity. Several privacy-preserving and privacy-enhanced techniques can provide practical security for data in use and data sharing, but none universally cover all use cases. We will discuss what tools can we use mitigate business risks caused by security threats, data residency and privacy issues. We will discuss how technologies like pseudonymization, anonymization, tokenization, encryption, masking and privacy preservation in analytics and business intelligence are used in Analytics and Machine Learning.

    Organizations are increasingly concerned about data security in processing personal information in external environments, such as the cloud; and information sharing. Data is spreading across hybrid IT infrastructure on-premises and multi-cloud services and we will discuss how to enforce consistent and holistic data security and privacy policies. Increasing numbers of data security, privacy and identity access management products are in use, but they do not integrate, do not share common policies, and we will discuss use cases in financial services of different techniques to protect and manage data security and privacy.

  • A Toolbook for Modernizing Financial Services Data Security Policies Feb 24 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Carol Nolan Drake + others TBD
    In 2020, the importance of privacy to consumers increased as the pandemic drove digital engagements, according to Deloitte. The media drives awareness of security breaches, making consumers hesitant to share personal data unless incentivized. When they do, they are at risk because data privacy policies are not comprehensive at some financial institutions. Communications regulations are followed, but they often lack personalization and transparency. Data treatment is also an issue, as employees often contribute to security breaches.

    New digital banks offer more transparency and a more modern customer experience, so consumers leave traditional banks. How can more financial services institutions create data privacy policies that keep their customers safe & reduce churn?

    Join this webinar to understand:
    The importance of a data security policy for financial institutions
    How to obtain and handle external data effectively.
    How to manage internal data effectively.
    How to reduce the frequency and impact of employee-created breaches

  • Data management future through DSOs’ lenses Feb 24 2021 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Tzeni Varfi, Senior Policy, Institutions and Legal Advisor – E.DSO
    The Clean Energy Package’s Electricity Directive establishes a new framework towards a customer-
    centric and sustainable energy system. Since Distribution System Operators (DSOs) connect both the
    vast majority of renewable generation and customers distributed energy resources, they play a vital
    role in the energy transition. DSOs in their natural role as neutral market facilitators welcome every
    development which helps customers to make better choices. Thus, DSOs’ customers will be the core
    of the future energy system, getting more active by monitoring their energy use, carefully choosing
    their supplier and service provider, producing their own electricity, and selling flexibility to third
    From DSOs perspective the energy data exchange is the important to a more customer-centric
    energy system, and DSOs seek high engagement in respective European work streams to support
    data interoperability.
    Join this webcast to explore the following:
    *How customers will be able to monitor their energy use, carefully choose their supplier and
    service provider, producing their own electricity, and selling flexibility to third parties.
    *How DSOs will manage the data and share them with third parties
    *How DSOs and TSOs can further cooperate for the benefit of customers, pursuing the “one
    system approach” to avoid isolated solutions and facilitate new third parties’ scalable business
  • Trends that will define the transformation of digital banking in LatAm in 2021 Feb 23 2021 11:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Mariela Januszewski, Risk Analyst, Garantia de Valores & Blogger, La Chica Material
    The change in consumer behavior (largely forced by the global pandemic) towards digital tools and the increase in cybercrime against critical infrastructure, highlight the need for banks, both digital and traditional, to offer measures security to protect the identity and assets of its customers. The growth of digital banking and its vulnerabilities will cause four trends in 2021

    - Legislation on financial technology and digital banking will modernize Latin American banking.
    - An increase in cybercrime will put consumers and financial institutions on alert
    - Better consumer protection through artificial intelligence, machine learning and biometrics
    - Banks and technology will come together to collaborate and innovate
  • Payments post-pandemic: Trends that will stick, and trends that won’t in 2021 Feb 23 2021 10:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Thad Peterson, Senior Analyst, Aite Group
    The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way that consumers shop and buy, and especially how they pay. Some payment trends that were underway prior to the pandemic, like Buy Online/Pickup In-Store and contactless/touchless payments accelerated, while in-store retail essentially shut down in many categories. Others, like QR code payments have emerged in markets that have been chip card bastions for years.

    As nations get back on their feet post-vaccination, some of the trends that emerged in 2020 will continue while some payment activities will revert to pre-COVID-19 behaviors, or possibly disappear altogether. What will the payments space look like post-Pandemic? This webinar will identify the payment trends that have emerged, the trends that will continue as the pandemic abates, and trends that will slip into oblivion in the future.
  • Beyond QR Codes: Surfing the New Payments Ecosystem Feb 23 2021 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jose Angel Arias, COO, Nerito
    The global COVID-19 crisis certainly accelerated digital transformation efforts across industries. However, the payments ecosystem has remained locked to the legacy infrastructure, messaging protocols and entry barriers that have existed for decades, created by the global credit card brands that manage and control who gets to participate in this ecosystem. The business motivations to move beyond the technology that has supported retail payments are there:

    *Very expensive PCI certification costs to get access to the network
    *Very expensive setup and operational costs from unreliable POS terminals with limited functionality
    *Very expensive intermediation fees, needed to pay for the credit card brand, the bank, the network and other middle-persons
    *Very little control over the collection of revenue due to complex reconciliation processes between brands, banks and networks
    *High exposure to fraud, as this is the best understood, most exploited way of making illegal money across all countries.

    Fintech companies should jump into this opportunity with the determination that other disruptors have shown in the past. The cost of building protocols and networks in parallel seems unbearable but the motivations and tools are there for those who dare. Huge economies like India and China have leapfrogged entire generations of technologies, simply by the fact that their countries could not, or would not invest in the past in the technologies being used in advanced economies. Thanks to this, we see how fintech companies are thriving in Africa and India, going directly into a future where payments are designed to run on top of what people use on a daily basis to interact with others. No need to explain the huge success stories of WeChat and Alipay, which, among other platforms in China, designed for simplicity and from scratch, to dominate the way payments will be done in the future, totally outside the world of global banks and credit cards.
