Welcome to the SWIFT Business Forum Madrid 2017
Across Europe, our industry continues to grapple with powerful disruptive forces – regulation, cyber threats, new technologies and new entrants, as well as changing customer behaviour, to name just a few. Change is a constant, but are we now witnessing a fundamental challenge to established business models and operational processes? Will established financial services players such as banks simply be on the receiving end of this change – or can they take control and exploit these disruptive forces for competitive advantage?
The programme for this event will combine keynote speeches and panel discussions to address a number of topics including:
- The evolution of the European payments landscape
- The future of cross-border payments – what’s in it for corporates?
- Regulation shaping the financial industry
- Financial crime compliance
- How SWIFT is responding to key trends in the global financial industry
Following the announcement of SWIFT’s Customer Security Programme - a dedicated initiative to reinforce and evolve the security of global banking, we will also look at how well the financial industry fares on cyber security, discuss the challenges involved in defending our industry from cyber-attacks, and share expertise and best practices.
You will hear from renowned industry speakers, alongside SWIFT experts, on all of these topics and learn about what SWIFT is doing to meet the needs of its community. As always, this one-day event will be an excellent opportunity to discuss and share experiences on topics of great relevance to you and your business.
I look forward to seeing you at the Business Forum.
Head of SWIFT Iberia
