SWIFT Business Forum Canada 2017
Building the Future
This event, for the SWIFT community, will focus on the key trends affecting the financial industry, particularly as it impacts the Canadian market.
The world of banking is at an inflection point; technology, regulation and cyber-crime are all evolving at a rapid pace. New entrants are seeking to gain market share from established institutions, who in turn are rethinking business models, and seeking to implement new technology to remain relevant and competitive.
But is the financial industry innovating fast enough to adapt to this new reality? How will cyber threats continue to evolve and impact global financial markets? What are the future challenges in an uncertain political and macroeconomic environment? Can banks rise to the challenge of collaborating successfully to build the future of financial services?
The SWIFT Business Forum Canada will gather leading figures from the financial community to discuss their vision and aspirations for the industry, whilst tackling key topics around banking and payments; technology and cyber security. The latest Research & Development and proof-of-concepts from the SWIFT Lab will also be showcased.
And following the announcement of SWIFT’s Customer Security Programme – a dedicated initiative to reinforce and evolve the security of global banking – we will discuss the challenges involved in defending our industry from cyber-attacks, and ask how Canada can stay resilient against the threat whilst continuing to innovate.
We look forward to welcoming you in Toronto.
Head of North America, Americas & UK Region
