Over 600 senior leaders from across the financial ecosystem gathered in New York to discuss ‘Building the Future’ of the financial industry.
On 14 June, 630 senior leaders from across the banking and financial technology industries gathered at Chelsea Piers for the SWIFT Business Forum New York 2017. The theme of the day, “Building the Future”, focused on how the financial industry must innovate to remain relevant, while staying resilient against a backdrop of uncertainty – one of the biggest challenges facing the industry today.
SWIFT Chairman Yawar Shah opened the day by detailing the new SWIFT Customer Security Programme, challenging the SWIFT community to answer a “call to action” to reinforce its security standards in the wake of cyber breaches that have targeted multiple banks around the world.
SWIFT is committed to continuing not only to develop and innovate but also to help protect the industry.
