The financial services industry is finally embracing new tech with gusto: there are now more banking interactions on mobile than there are in-branch! But as technology advances and the complexity of the supply chain increases, concerns over data management grow bigger and bigger. Data leaks and other cyber security breaches are no longer headlines as they become more frequent and organisations need to give the reassurance message to their customer base in order to remain relevant and trustworthy.
Such vulnerabilities are made more complicated due to the multiplicity of online channels (websites, social media, mobile devices and cloud technology) and customers expect faster and better services. But how can financial institutions find a balanced spot and give a positive approach to such a gloomy scenario?
Join Cybersecurity Expert and Journalist with Channel 4 News, Geoff White, Sitecore and Espire Infolabs, a global Sitecore Partner for an unmissable session about how Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) businesses are working towards tightly securing the entire spectrum of their supply chain, while trying to catch up with a world where their customers expect services to be available in all digital touchpoints fast and securely and also gaining agility by leveraging customer engagement data to deliver faster service and compelling experiences.Registration Closed
Ever wondered how the latest developments in technology are affecting our world?
Geoff White has. In fact, he dives deep into these issues as an accomplished keynote speaker and prolific writer, having spoken on panels and chaired debates at venues ranging from London's Chatham House think-tank to the Latitude music festival. His reports at Channel 4 News aim to create real-world change, with a particular focus on e-crime and cybersecurity: his words have brought about arrests, regulatory investigations and legislative action. Geoff also created the Data Baby project, a unique experiment which used a fictional online identity to expose how our personal data is being used - and abused - online. He now runs a series on cybercrime, tracking the shadow darkweb economy that feeds on stolen personal data, hacked computers and corporate incompetence.
He is also the co-creator of The Secret Life of Your Mobile Phone, a live, interactive phone hacking stage performance which shows how the global technology industry is harvesting the data leaking from your handset.
