The Future of Open Banking Depends on Improving the Customer Experience, Successful Digital Transformation and Security Best Practice, Unisys to Tell Global Banking Leaders
Unisys to present at the Global CIO Banking Summit, highlight how the financial services industry can address barriers to Open Banking success
LONDON, February 4, 2019 – Unisys Corporation today announced it will present at The Global CIO Banking Summit to discuss some of the key challenges and opportunities within the financial services industry.
Simon Healy, industry director for Unisys Financial Services in EMEA, and Salvatore Sinno, Unisys' chief security architect, will host a panel on how financial services providers can keep up with and adapt to new technology. Attendees will discuss the future of "Connected Banking" and what financial institutions need to consider in making decisions with confidence when embarking on transformational change.
"Regulations like Open Banking have prompted financial service providers to innovate, but as new technology such as AI, voice assistants and personalization start to become more prolific across the banking industry we've often found the industry ask how, as a bank, can you keep up with and adapt to these changes while keeping your customers happy?" commented Healy. "Not only this, but banks need to realize the risks to customer data that come with offering more cutting-edge digital services, and how these challenges can be both addressed with proper security and balanced with other needs."
To examine how financial service providers can take advantage of Open Banking without compromising the security of customer data and system integrity, Healy and Sinno will also host a workshop to examine the kinds of cyberattacks that are targeted at financial institutions. Attendees will be able to learn how to identify and mitigate these threats within their environments.
"A Zero Trust approach to security is now a must-have for financial institutions, as increasingly complex cyberattacks have rendered the idea of a secure network perimeter an unattainable reality," commented Healy. "As banks embrace digital transformation and Open Banking, they must take the necessary steps to build security across all of their digital banking services to ensure operational agility while also containing risks. By being able to deliver the perfect trinity among customer experience, digital workplaces and security, financial services providers can make themselves winners from Open Banking."
To wrap up the event, Healy will host an industry roundtable at which the focus will be on predictions for which industry players will be the winners and losers from the Open Banking movement.
