Is Open Banking Really the Future or is it Privacy’s Worst Nightmare? (Sponsored by PKWARE)

Open banking has shaken up the financial services industry and has been considered a game-changer to the industry over the past couple of years. While open banking brings a significant benefit to consumers, there is still a concern for the privacy and security of this technology.

This session will look at:
  • The current landscape of open banking
  • How robust are banks' security measures that enable third parties to monitor APIs and data?
  • What controls are in place to enforce consumer decisions on third party data access, and how are financial organisations verifying third parties to make sure rules are being followed.
  • The current regulations and what the penalties are for violations.

Tackling the FinTech Regulatory Landscape: Addressing Challenges in Privacy, Compliance and Cybersecurity (Sponsored by PKWARE)

Fintech has disrupted the financial sector dramatically over the past few years. With new, fast services, increased connectivity it has enabled the industry to be quicker and more agile. However, given the rapid acceleration of the industry the global regulatory framework has increased in complexity that poses a challenge to organisations trying to keep up. In addition, the rapid growth in FinTech has also benefited hackers, so it is vital for fintech organisations to secure their software in case of an attack.

This session will host a panel of experts looking at the current complexity of the regulatory landscape. Panelists will offer their advice and guidance to the audience.
