FStech roundtable: Open Data: Compliance and Challenges in Digital Transformation - sponsored by Information Builders
30 April, Searcys at the Gherkin, London

As the personal information sharing objectives of the second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) and Open Banking expand into Open Data across financial services, it will be those companies which offer a single view that are able to acquire and retain customers.

Giving users - from internal staff to external customers and regulators - easily accessible data, translated into meaningful insights, is the key to moving fast and beating the competition. This is often enabled by moving data sets into the cloud, but how best to hand-off to third parties without falling foul of GDPR requests and security concerns?

This roundtable will attempt to provide solutions to some of the biggest problems facing banks as they transform legacy systems to keep up with digitally-native startups.

FStech roundtable: Rethinking the Risk of IT Outsourcing - sponsored by Creative ITC
1 May, City Social, Tower 42, London

Keeping IT in-house can cause staffing headaches and drain investment from other areas, but outsourcing has its own set of risks – from regulatory responsibility to data security oversight and maintenance of on-site systems.

Increasingly though, to keep pace with digitally-native challengers, using third party providers for IT infrastructure and cloud-based platforms is crucial to gain and retain customers and clients.

This meeting of industry peers will examine the various due diligence questions businesses should ask, debate the pros and cons of different strategies being used, and assess the threats posed by political upheaval, cyber criminals and falling foul of the regulator.

FStech organises and hosts a range of exclusive intimate roundtables and bespoke events throughout the year, which are free to attend for financial technology professionals.

A roundtable is a form of discussion where participants debate specific business and technology topics. Each person is given equal right to participate in these discussions, which centre on current trends and issues affecting the sector.

Roundtable discussions and event write-ups are often published digitally and in print. In this case, the write-ups and comments are sent to participants ahead of publication and they are given the chance to approve their comments.

There is also the opportunity for FStech to work with you on networking drinks evenings, half-day conferences, seminars and much more.

If you have a roundtable or bespoke event topic in mind, please enquire and our in-house events team can build an event specific to your needs.

Recent and future FStech event topics include: digital transformation, data management, payments, cloud computing, compliance, blockchain and artificial intelligence. Click here to see our past events.
