Virtual Event Series

Synopsis and overview of the session

Privacy refers to the right to have control over how your information is collected, shared and used. Security generally refers to the protection of data and the standards that organisations plan to put around it.

Why is it that organizations cannot have privacy without security, but can achieve security without privacy? This is a long-standing tension that has been even more apparent in our current digital age.

Top priorities in BFSI in 2020 primarily focuses on technology trends that will disrupt both the FI’s traditional business model and workforce.

Focus Network, in partnership with BlackBerry, invite you to join other leading IT and security executives to discuss the vulnerabilities in these industry trends and how having a balance of both privacy and security maturity can help de-risk an organisation’s digital strategy. During this virtual roundtable, we’ll be discussing key topics such as:

  • Fintech taking over as the new business model
  • Public cloud becoming more a dominant infrastructure in BFSI
  • The increased dependency of “customer intelligence” and information
  • Mobile workforce
