  • Future of stablecoins Oct 19 2021 4:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Farah Saleh, Product Manager, Digix
    Join us as we will take a look at innovation of stablecoins, regulations and its future trends. Investments and payments made by cryptocurrencies will continue to accelerate globally. Price volatility both upward and downward trends have drawn financial interest and attention of the regulators.
    To function effectively as a currency alternative, crypto must be liquid, possess relatively low-price volatility, and be integrated with established financial institutions. As such, stablecoins will be a more popular alternative to push blockchain and crypto adoption forward.

  • A vCISO´s UX Advice: Security and Privacy or Usability is a False Trade-off Aug 26 2021 9:00 pm UTC 60 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.

  • Panel Discussion: Diving into Data & Analytics in Financial Services Aug 24 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Panelists To Be Confirmed
    In a recent study, Alveo found that almost two thirds of financial services data scientists say their organisation is currently unable to combine data and analytics into a single environment. Perhaps due to their continued reliance on legacy systems and siloed data stores, financial services companies are missing out on the enormous value that data can bring.

    With more customers than ever interacting with financial services companies online, the sector is collectively aggregating more information about consumers than ever before. By failing to harness the power of data and analytics, financial services companies risk losing out to competitors who have prioritised data-driven decision-making.

    By undergoing organisational transformation, employing a modern data stack and aligning core business objectives to data and AI, companies can minimise risk and create more engaging products and services for their customers. In this session, you'll get tried-and-tested strategies to ensure your company can better manage and leverage customer data.

    Topics for discussion include:

    Data & Analytics 'done right' - securely manage and extract useful insights from an ever-increasing data set to drive innovation and enhance the customer experience
    Thinking digitally - cultivate a data-first decision-making mindset to develop business objectives that align with your data
    Digital risk management - harness your data to improve risk evaluation, deliver more accurate reports and achieve regulatory compliance
    Why legacy systems are obsolete - the opportunities that updating your data architecture will unleash and how to get started
  • Financial Services’ Digital Horizon: Data Management Trends, Risks & Compliance Aug 24 2021 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Kristy Nelson, MBA/Paralegal, E.G.S. Management Consult, Inc. Research and Innovation
    Innovation has become the driver for technology among the financial services industry. According to McKinsey & Co., risk is the strategic issue to overcome any challenges with new technological demands. The concept of data migration is becoming fully digitalized to enable optimized efficiency and productivity. However, we must not presume that risk will be minimized especially with more reliance on technology. Data management has reaped benefits with digital transformation which has been evident in financial services. So, how can we keep up with balancing new technology and the operations of financial data management? This solution is ongoing, utilizing risk management to balance technological advances and seek compliance.

    Regulatory compliance is of more importance in financial services, especially with Cloud adoption and Fintech’s disruption. Other factors are contributary, not to mention the cohesiveness towards other forms of technology such as AI and Robotics. What are the attempts to combat risk in financial data management? Which regulatory compliances are specifically assessed in financial services? Who are the global regulators and how are they addressing potential risk?

    Answers to these pertinent questions will be discussed in this informative webinar, detailing the following:

    1.) How are the trends and risks assessing data in Financial Services?
    2.) What key concepts are of importance in financial data management?
    3.) Introduction of global regulatory entities and their implemented strategies.
    4.) Which compliance tools are effective and relevant in Financial Services?
  • Using Agile Data Governance to Minimize Financial Risk Aug 24 2021 9:00 am UTC 45 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.

    Agenda:

    What exactly is agile Data Governance?
    How to implement regulatory requirements into a DG framework and to mitigate risk in financial data?

  • Adapt or Perish: Leveraging Data to Improve Business Agility Recorded: May 27 2021 63 mins
    Huzeyfe Borazan, Co-Founder, Finspire Technology
    Clive Humby, a British mathematician, originally coined the phrase "data is the new oil" in 2006, and ever since then, we have been familiar with this analogy. The idea behind the "data is the new oil" concept is that, as raw oil, raw data isn't valuable in and of itself; instead, value is generated when it is obtained thoroughly and accurately, connected to other relevant data, and done promptly.

    We're in a digital economy where data is more valuable than ever. Cost-effective and efficient data storage, super fast and affordable processors, plus advancements in AI and other data-centric sciences have made it possible to extract massive value out of data. It is no surprise that the most valuable companies in the world are all data-driven. They are offering top-notch services for free in exchange for some personal data. Considering this, nowadays, the "data is the new currency" concept is more precise than "the oil" analogy. How accurate is that statement, though?

    We will go through this by exploring how to leverage data to get the most of it and discuss the following:
    -Innovation: Improving customer experience with AI
    -Excellence: Using cloud, data and AI for better operational resilience
    -Frontiers: Shifting from data-driven to AI-driven business
    -Barriers: What are the limits and constraints on using the data

  • 1 Voice: 1 Vote: Biometric Authentication Recorded: May 24 2021 75 mins
    Brian Maw, Chris Benedict, Cody Dyer, Britton Wolf & Jon Greenwood
    As experts in the fields of Biometrics, Blockchain, Crypto, Payments, and Financial Services, we believe that the human ability to receive, compound, process, interact with and export all data in the known universe is a lifelong journey, made ever more urgent with the introduction of evolutionary technologies including Data Fabrics, IoT, Blockchain, and Biometrics.

    Every moment we interact with IoT devices, there is new data being created that compounds our interaction further. Data begets new data. Knowledge begets new questions. In our analysis and observations, the more we begin to realize and interact in the universe of IoT, the greater the amount of data flows into our infinitely expanding databases.

    Our research has led us to conclude that the IoT revolution presents a unique opportunity to make computable anonymized data more accessible. This in turn fuels the global evolution and adoption of biometric technology integrating with common everyday activities that must be secured, such as:

    ·Logging into a banking app
    ·Secure access to web 3.0
    ·Blockchain integration
    ·Geolocation validation for payments and secure voting
    ·Access to the ever-expanding VR and AR worlds

    Permissionless Authentication is on the forefront of a groundbreaking revolution in the way organizations, institutions and enterprises of every scale interact with their partners, employees, users and customers. Biometric verification and authentication provide endless opportunities to ensure ease of use combined with the highest levels of security in the worlds of IoT and Big Data.

    Key Takeaways:
    Biometric Authentication integrated with IoT can provide secure payments
    Also provides secure access to the Blockchain and can virtually eliminate Voter, Identity and Unemployment Fraud.
    These types of technological advances can help ensure a safe environment and exceptional security in all segments of our lives.
  • No Code Platforms in Health Care & Insurance Shaping the Future After Covid Recorded: May 24 2021 59 mins
    Bhagvan Kommadi, Director of Product Engineering, ValueMomentum
    There is a trend for using No code Platforms in health care and insurance. No code platforms help insurance companies to radically improve the time to market and delivery of Life, Annuities, Retirement, Accident, P&C consumer, commercial, and Speciality products. Insurance companies can sell their product across different business lines and distribution channels. Digital Transformation in insurance sector can be enabled easily using no code platforms. Applications can be created using drag and drop actions and deployed using DevOps hence reducing total cost of ownership. APIs can be used to integrate with legacy systems. Application can have plugins to configure the APIs.

    According to Gartner's report in January 2021, by 2025, 70% of new applications developed by enterprises will use no-code or low-code technologies. This has increased from 25% in 2020 to 70% in 2021.Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms has Mendex and OutSystems as two top low-code platforms. The others are Microsoft, Salesforce, Appian, Betty Blocks, Pega, ServiceNow, and Oracle. Forrester lists out OutSystems, Mendix, Microsoft, Salesforce, and Kony as the low-code development platforms for application development.

    Insurance enterprises are looking for digital transformation platform. They are planning digital transformation initiatives for post covid recovery and to accelerate their business processes .No code platforms can help both insurance and health care companies to get started on their digital transformation initiatives. Customer experience can be improved by using the no code platforms instead of custom application development. No code platform can help to create applications easily compared to traditional application development. Team can collaborate easily by looking at the functionality, changes, and deployed application. The platform can help in cutting down the build, resource, and maintenance cost.
  • New Challenge Ahead: Whistleblowing in FinTech-SMEs Wanted Recorded: May 24 2021 47 mins
    Dr. Thomas Altenbach, CEO & Founder, LegalTegrity
    The latest trends in digital whistleblowing solutions to improve SME's compliance and risk management.

    Every year, companies incur high losses due to economic crimes. Many crimes happen unnoticed in the company itself; fraud, theft and data misuse are most frequently committed by the company's own employees or managers. Financial Services is one of the highest regulated sectors and therefore of utmost importance for FinTechs. One core solution is to rely on social control by one's own colleagues: Open or anonymous information from whistleblowers can save board members and managing directors a lot of trouble and money.

    FinTech companies are highly innovative, they demand digital, innovative solutions to fulfill the demands of regulations: An EU directive from 2019 obliges companies with more than 50 employees or an annual turnover of more than 10 million euros to set up internal reporting channels that ensure the whistleblower’s anonymity.

    Join us to learn about
    -Whistleblowing wanted? How to use Whistleblowing as early warning system for your company
    -The advantage of digital whistleblowing solutions
    -The requirements of the EU whistleblowing directive
