Cybersecurity is drawing increasing concern for stakeholders as a result of more and more security breaches and cybersecurity attacks. Within financial services, there is a demand for transparency about data protection and confidentiality.

At the same time, FinTech is changing the landscape of FSI and bringing a range of highly innovative products and services to an expanded market of the unbanked and underbanked. Beneath the surface, these innovations are increasing cybersecurity risks in many FSI organisations due to the interconnectedness of the FSI industry. Join us in a conversation on the FinTech Revolution and how cybersecurity plays a crucial role in keeping our FSI ecosystem safe.
