Using AI to shift large organisation's culture towards data literacy

Combining AI with Data Analytics is opening new opportunities for large organisations to develop their employee’s ability to read, understand and ultimately make better decisions with data.
Building up Data Analytics capability has been a major priority for most large organisations within the last decade.
As organisations become more data mature, they become more and more aware of the need to transform their company culture to truly leverage the potential of data-driven insights.

Why financial institutions are leading the charge to upskill their developers in secure coding

Financial institutions are under constant pressure to accelerate innovation, leading them to adopt more agile development frameworks and this focus on rapid deployment is often at the expense of security. However, with the odds of a company experiencing a breach being as high as one in four, and with most of the world's major security breaches caused by coding errors allowing hackers to gain more privileges on computer networks, financial institutions have been motivated to act.

The rise of Asia Pacific as a source of innovation

Financial institutions in emerging markets are introducing innovative solutions faster than their peers in more developed markets. Advances in FinTech make it easier, quicker and cheaper for them to accurately assess customer behaviour, needs and risks, thereby opening the door to new business models. Asia Pacific’s booming e-commerce and vast migration of middle-classes are giving rise to new financial services products to meet demand for coverage and risk appetite – digital inclusion has now outpaced and effectively substituted financial inclusion.

Cyber threats and regulatory requirements to comply with anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing rules place a significant burden on financial organisations and their customers.

Student Challenge 2018 - Data privacy in an open banking world - Session 2

One of the most recent developments driving digital transformation is that of open banking (or open data) – a regime that aims to put customers at the centre and allow them to receive better deals from their banks by permitting financial information to be shared securely with other banks and external providers. However, this brings with it the increased risk of personal banking data being compromised. Ensuring data privacy is therefore of utmost importance in this new environment.
