  • Evolving attack methods of skimming fraudsters and their sophisticated technologies with the accelerating of the inexplicably slow B2B payment space.
  • Externalizing payments shifts the burden and risk towards banks. So, with a slight hint of hacking possibilities, could the customers be directed to a separate site to enter payment details securely. If so, wouldn’t it be a tiring process of having to go through multiple sites just to complete a single transaction?

  • Easy voice assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant make routine tasks with deposits and withdrawals with the bank’s voice technology shortening the procedure without the lift of a finger.

    Government-issued IDs, like passports, are the gold standard for identification. But as people use IDs to access an increasing variety of digital and physical services it might be time to challenge the status quo. Could a single government digital ID be used across both public and private organizations? Could identification expand to incorporate a wider range of elements? And could your ID become something you are, rather than just something you hold? Hear from this session on how technology trends have reshaped how identity is viewed and the opportunity to use them to create more seamless and accessible public services as well as the challenges of applying them within government.

    Millions of entitlements for human and non-human identities are currently increasing at a rapid pace. To manage the number of clouds and platforms from different vendors and service providers with different and proprietary ways to supervise them is indeed a growing cybersecurity concern. In this panel, we will discuss the status of multi-cloud identity management, the risk dimensions resulting from the complexity of multi-cloud multi-platform hybrid infrastructures, and the solutions and possible standards to mitigate those risks and to reduce complexity.

Popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum and a bunch of other cryptos ensure the privacy of transactions and cannot be tracked. For obvious reasons. Governments and regulators can’t keep a tab on transactions done using private cryptocurrencies. Such cryptos have the potential to be exploited for money laundering and terror funding purposes. Listen to this session on these coins using a bunch of techniques to add a layer of anonymity to transactions – such as ring signatures that jumble the sender’s public key with random keys, stealth addresses that hide the original sender’s crypto destination address, and zero-knowledge proofs that don’t require evidence of actual information. Cryptocurrencies pose concerns surrounding financial stability.

    Existing traditional identity systems are fragmented, insecure and exclusive. Blockchain technology allows for a more secure management and storage of digital identities by providing unified, interoperable, and tamper-proof infrastructure with several benefits to enterprises, users, and management systems. This session discusses the issues digital identities can solve, the challenges that exist, who will take the lead in implementation of digital identities and will 2022 be the year we see greater adoption of blockchain-enabled digital identities?

  • Obtaining legal and other expert advice on this area and acknowledging the added complexity for banks and financial institutions to operate on a global level.
    Banks play a vital role in climate-related financing and investment, credit risk management, and the development of new climate risk hedging products. On the downside, they face credit risks because policies to cut emissions can create costs for carbon-intensive sectors and companies. In addition to that, price volatility in carbon markets (CO2, oil, gas, coal) and climate-related commodities leads to uncertainty in financial projections. This session speaks on optimizing carbon risk management and the development of assessment tools applied to carbon risks and carbon risk reduction strategies using carbon-related economic analysis and/or by developing climate change-related risk matrices.

    According to the March study Banking on Climate Chaos 2021, around 60 big commercial and investment banks together financed $3.8 trillion in fossil fuel industries between 2016 and 2020. As we are all aware, high carbon prices will significantly stimulate the adoption of green technology. The carbon tax was devised by banks to lower the costs of carbon dioxide emissions from the fossil fuels that produce them when burnt. By this, Malaysia plans to cut the emission intensity of its gross domestic product by 45 per cent by 2030.
    This session explores how banks exploit their most powerful products, such as offering dynamic credit interest based on their sustainability scores and carbon-cutting loyalty systems that incentivize corporate customers or individuals to purchase environmentally friendly products and services.

  • Placing appropriate regulation and supervision to ensure that financial institutions are adequately measuring, mitigating, and buffering against climate risks.
  • Increase the capacity of financial institutions to be the catalyst in the transition to a low-carbon economy by increasing the offering of green financial solutions to help customers transition to greener practices and to better cope with climate-related events.
