Next-Gen Secure Digital Platforms for Financial Services Industry

The massive digital wave has spawned the era of 'connected customers'. Unlike the traditional financial services customers, new generation digital customers demand:

  • Robust Data & Cyber Security: Strong assurance that the personal information shared with the company is completely secure and not vulnerable to any kind of data leaks or breaches.
  • Compelling Customer Experience (CX): Personalised, contextual and consistent CX every single time, across all digital touch-points.

Nailing these twin elements - data & cyber security and CX - has emerged as the new competitive differentiator, the key to winning digital customers' loyalty for financial services businesses.

A new breed of game-changing Next-Generation Secure Digital Strategy and Platform is surfacing as the powerful key for the financial services companies to solve these twin problems and stay at the top of their game!

In a power-packed conference we are all set to unveil valuable insights, best practices and business cases of how some of the leading financial services companies are exponentially increasing their profitability by taking the crucial leap to the next-generation secure digital platforms.

Join us at the conference on 29th November at The Hospital Club, London for interactive sessions with our expert speakers followed by networking and lunch.

This conference is unmissable for Marketing, Digital & Customer Experience Leaders and Technology & Cybersecurity Leaders of competitive financial services businesses.


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.
