Welcome to SOFE 2017!
The world of banking is at an inflection point; technology, regulation and cyber-crime are all evolving at a rapid pace. Banks need to stay resilient and secure, whilst continuing to innovate and navigate change to remain competitive and meet the expectations of their customers.
In this environment, operational excellence remains a crucial foundation for financial institutions to build and secure the future. SOFE has established itself as an unrivalled forum in which to debate our industry’s operational challenges and discuss how to achieve and maintain the levels of operational excellence and security we all aim for.
Following the announcement of SWIFT’s Customer Security Programme (CSP) - a dedicated initiative to reinforce and evolve the security of global banking - this year’s SOFE will again have a particular focus on cyber-security.
The programme will again combine plenary sessions addressing the big picture questions that really matter, with in-depth work sessions on SWIFT’s products and services and the CSP. We will examine all the key challenges you’re facing, as well as progress in addressing them, particularly looking at where collaborative efforts can drive innovative solutions to common problems.
We hope you have a productive, informative and collaborative SOFE!
Head of EMEA Services and Support, SWIFT
