Welcome to the SWIFT Business Forum Warsaw

Securing the future

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. In Poland, and globally, banks and financial institutions are seeking to innovate in order to remain relevant and competitive in today’s environment. But change introduces uncertainty, and uncertainty brings risk. 

How do banks stay resilient and secure, whilst continuing to innovate and navigate change?  How will cyber threats continue to evolve and impact global financial markets? What are the future challenges in such a fast changing environment? Can banks rise to the challenge of collaborating successfully to build the future of financial services?

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
  • Target2 Securities – with a guest speaker from the ECB
  • Financial crime compliance
  • Financial technology (fintech) and DLT

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 senior 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 event will be an excellent opportunity to discuss and share experiences on topics of great relevance to you and your business.

We look forward to seeing you at the Business Forum!
