Synopsis and overview of the session

The Financial Services industry has been a leader in driving digital transformation programmes, increasing productivity and efficiency across the board. But multiple apps connecting to your systems and new digital endpoints also increase your cyber threat surface, which in turn requires additional security measures. There is a risk that these security measures stop your staff and customers getting their work done, negating the original benefits of these transformation programmes.

Focus Network, in partnership with BlackBerry, invite you to join other leading IT and security executives to discuss the new challenges of how to maintain a digital workplace, without over working your security team or having multiple validation requests get in the way of your end users and customers. During the lunch, we’ll be discussing key topics such as:

  • A Password-less future
  • The Balancing act: Is Security a hindrance or an enabler? User Satisfaction, compliance and security.
  • User Journey driven security architecture VS traditional assume breech security architecture
  • Application agnostic Source code level security
