The financial industry is facing unprecedented market disruption. Technology is changing the way institutions and consumers alike consider and conduct transactions, expanding the breadth of opportunity on both sides of the counter.
Technology has provided its share of pros and cons for the financial services industry. On one hand, it has created a level of transparency between customers and their financial health, giving them access to their account information and enabling them to apply for loans, transfer funds, pay bills and withdraw funds with the click of a mouse or the push of a few buttons. On the other hand, it has changed consumers’ expectations regarding banking as a whole, expecting a level of service other online sites provide, such as immediate customer assistance and problem resolution.
Technology has had a profound impact on society, influencing everything from the way we communicate with each other to how we conduct business transactions. In the financial services space, technology has brought banks closer to their customers, offering a wide range of online services to appeal to a population of consumers who now view their smartphones as something they can’t live without.
In the process of shifting their practices to accommodate this new generation of customers, banks are transforming and reinventing themselves from the corporate office to the branch office through innovative services and technologies that take banking beyond the traditional experience. Networks are playing a central role in this transformation.
Achieve your goals by successfully mapping common sources of customer struggle to the right engagement opportunities. With ever changing customer expectations and behaviors in the new Guided Economy, a Large National Insurance provider decided to build a competitive advantage to:
improve customer experience
escalate lead acquisition
increase conversion across digital platforms
By mapping struggle to engagements, digital channels are used to help customers select the right products, complete web forms, or become new customers.
Technology has drastically transformed the banking industry and the way in which consumers transact. Mobile banking is now the new normal. Many consumers, especially millennials prefer to do most if not all of their financial transactions via smartphone due to the convenience in which it offers. Even so, the popularity of mobile banking does not imply that the end of retail banking is near as research has shown that consumers still prefer retail banking for complex services such as loan applications, new account openings and advisory services.

Much has been written about Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) and its potential to herald a new era of open banking where banks no longer have a monopoly on payment services. Instead they will be forced to provide full access to customer accounts to third parties looking to provide financial services of their own, on top of banks’ existing data and infrastructure.
All of this could prove to be true, just not on January 13th 2018, the deadline for national governments to transpose PSD2 into law. This is because there is still so much to be decided and clarified. The European Banking Authority’s longawaited regulatory technical standards (RTS) on strong customer authentication (SCA) were issued in March 2017 but missing some of the finer details, such as the methods to remotely access customer data and account information and the measures around the use of application programming interfaces (APIs) and screen-scraping.
Ein neues Security-Modell, das Sie verstehen und nachahmen sollten.
Die Security in Unternehmen ähnelte bisher einer Festungsstrategie, die Anwenderendpunkte abschottete und Mauern um das Netzwerk baute. Heutzutage kann diese Strategie die Nutzung von Mobile Devices und SaaS-Funktionen (Software-as-a-Service), die sich außerhalb der Festung befinden, nicht mehr unterstützen. Daher haben sich Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) nach neuen Lösungen umgesehen, die diese Technologien heute sichern können und die sich einer Zeit anpassen, in der sich sowohl Bedrohungen als auch Unternehmensanforderungen verändern.
The banking industry is being pressured by two new forces simultaneously: an increasingly stringent regulatory environment that requires new levels of data governance, and a shift to digital business processes that introduces new, nimble competitors and empowers customers in new ways.
This E-Book is intended to provide information and insights on how banking executives involved in digital transformation can successfully navigate in this new and quickly evolving landscape.
Digitizing communications governance is critical as banks adopt next-generation automation and RegTech solutions to address compliance and risk-mitigation measures. Regulations are changing risk profiles, requiring oversight of the culture of risk-taking, and preventing market abuse.
Hitachi Vantara solutions enable you to centrally “capture, curate, consume” all regulated employee communications across the front office, middle office and back office.
Sixty-three percent of data breaches involve weak, default, or stolen passwords.
Why? To put it simply, password fatigue. Think of all the passwords you keep track of for your personal needs—your mobile banking app, your Gmail, your Facebook account, your Amazon Prime… the list goes on. Best practices tell us that we should use a unique and complex password for every service, but due to increased cloud adoption—enabling anytime access to applications from any device—users lean toward convenient but risky password practices.
Copenhagen’s strong asset management tradition has its roots in the Danish labour market model, where employees and employers have created a unique pension system. Since its inception in the 1970s, it has amassed assets of over EUR 500bn. Pension assets amount to twice Denmark’s GDP, which is more than four times the OECD average.
Experts agree that username/password authentication does not provide enough protection against unauthorized access. CIOs are challenged to increase authentication security while preserving operational and budget efficiency.

In the past decade, banks have applied a vast array of strategies to attract new customers—free checking, high interest savings, low interest mortgage, cash deposits, and product give-a-ways. Many offers were bundles with credit, either in the form of a new credit line or in the form of low interest on transferred credit balances.
The purpose is to attract new customers who bring new account balances. Although successful in attracting new customers, those customers usually brought small balances. It didn’t matter if each account’s balance was small. The sum of these small account balances would be a very large amount. This new amount could be leveraged into loans and hence profits. – Download our whitepaper today!
