11:30 Session Two

Topic – Adoption of Biometrics in a Digital Age 

Speaker – Anne Green BA (hons) MICM ACFTech, Managing director of Global Operations, Paycasso

The technology and customer acceptance to provide biometric proof of identity when engaging with financial services is at its peak. Yet there has been no mass adoption by the banks. Is it ‘price over risk’ or the difficulty in integrating another process within an already complicated customer acquisition journey that involves, Credit, Fraud and Regulatory risk screening through multiple systems. Or are there other deeper rooted issues which create greater customer friction.

Anne is a Subject Matter Expert in the Fraud, financial crime and Fintech fields and currently the Managing Director of Global Operations for Paycasso. A company that specialises in digital Identity assurance. She has previously been business development & innovation director at Experian ID & Fraud Solutions, Head of Fraud for Aviva General Insurance, International Financial Crime Manager at Bupa Insurance Services and a member of the law enforcement community.

12:15 Session Three

Topic – How the Right Training can Help Improve Security Culture

Speaker – Matthew Tyler – CEO, Blackfoot UK Ltd

Despite the growth in systems and technology or perhaps because of it fraud prevention relies heavily on an educated and skilled workforce to intelligently and proactively take the correct actions and make good decisions.

Keeping staff effectively trained is a significant task and burden to any business but is especially difficult for a very large business and those with dispersed workforces.

Matthew will be taking us on a holistic journey looking at how we can train and educate staff using cutting edge cognitive behavioural techniques and systems that ensure that not only do we end up with a workforce that is truly well trained to meet all of the challenges it will face but that it is done in a way that actually reduces the total cost to the business of achieving its end results.

13:00 Lunch

There will be a buffet lunch and refreshments provided.

Please let us know of any dietary requirements for lunch when you register we will do our best to accommodate your needs
