SWIFT Premium Services Forum Europe 2017

Work sessions

Planning ahead – how you can prepare for the mandatory changes coming your way in the next two years

Audience:  Anyone managing SWIFT infrastructure
The session will review some of the mandatory changes that will impact your SWIFT infrastructure in the next two years. During this interactive session, SWIFT’s product teams will share the key information on some upcoming changes, and answer your questions on how to optimise your upgrade planning.

Instant Payments at SWIFT – Preparing your Operations

Audience:  Anyone involved in Payments Operations
With the recent announcement of SWIFT’s Instant Payments solution designed to serve, initially, the European market, there is much interest in how the service will work, and what the impact will be on operations. This session will provide you with details of the solution which will allow you to run true low latency, 24x7 operations for instant payments.

Under attack! Are you prepared?

Audience: Anyone involved in managing security operations, strategy or planning
It has been said that there are two types of organisation – those who have been targeted, and those who are unaware that they have been targeted. So it is critical not just to strengthen your defences, but also to prepare robust procedures to deal with all aspects of potential breaches. In this interactive session, SWIFT’s cyber forensics team will share best practices to help you build and review your procedures in reaction to cyber-attacks.

Preparing for ISO 20022 adoption

Audience: Anyone involved in managing SWIFT infrastructure or messaging
As ISO20022 adoption continues to gain momentum, this session will update you on the latest developments from the global SWIFT community. You will also have the opportunity to hear more about the technical impact of adopting ISO20022, and how to plan for the technical and operational changes involved.

Plenary session

The Human Factor: Managing the insider threat

Audience: All participants at the PSF are invited to join this session
We often think of cyber threat as an external phenomenon and devise defences accordingly. However, the threat from insiders, whether malicious or unintentional, merits equal attention. In this session, you will hear from industry experts on how to develop a strategy for this critical area, balancing security needs with daily operational requirements.

Collective Intelligence Cafes

Audience: All participants at the PSF are invited to join this session
Collective intelligence is shared or group intelligence that emerges from the collaboration, or the collective effort of individuals.   By that definition collective intelligence has been around for a very long time in families, in companies, in countries and at the Premium Service Forum. 
The Collective Intelligence Cafés will take place as one plenary session where a variety of operational topics are discussed in parallel and you can choose which topics you would like to participate in.  The same topics will be repeated three times to allow you to attend several discussions.  Amongst the wide range of topics we will cover are planning infrastructure changes, SWIFTSmart, managing maintenance windows ….
We hope that this format will allow you to share your own unique experiences, and benefit from hearing how others do things. We look forward to a lively, collaborative Café.
