More on the interactive workshops

Digital Identity Management

Digital Identity has never been more relevant. On the one hand, users are becoming more conscious and exposed to identity theft, data breaches or business email compromise. On the other hand, users are now accustomed to getting as little friction as possible in all their interactions with the digital world. This transformation, starting from the consumer space, is now entering the professional space, bringing new expectations to existing solutions, like 3SKey.

In this workshop, participants will be able to share experience on how innovation in Identity Management, such as mobile, cloud signature, or biometrics, are impacting the daily life of corporate treasurers. Those changes bring new challenges, but also new opportunities.  For treasurers dealing with multiple banks we’ll explore what a corporate ready identity solution could look like that reduces both friction and operational risk, making your business more secure and fluent for the years to come.


Discover the 3 different layers of gpicurrently being developed and implemented today. In this workshop you’ll be able to see what GPI looks like in real life as we  demo how the service is being rolled out for corporate customers. Come and see and discuss what more can be done to meet industry needs.

Digital KYC for Corporates   

Further to a pilot in 2017 confirming the challenges for both banks and corporates and the need to find a solution, SWIFT is formally assessing the possibility to extend the KYC Registry to include KYC corporate information, pre-requisite to launch the solution being the definition of a standard. SWIFT has built a Working Group of banks participating in the definition of the scope and creation of a standard. We will share the initial conclusions of the KYC for Corporates Working Group, as well as collect feedback from the participants on the proposed scope and initial standard.
