In financial services, and particularly within financial services IT, risk manifests itself in many ways. But operational or strategic risk are no excuse for an institution to avoid the reality that, at some point, it will have to adopt new technologies and advance its infrastructure to meet the demands of its clients and staff. It’s part of doing business.

Still, there are many new technologies to understand and a lot of potential advantages and pitfalls that come with them. We hear about virtualization, mobile banking, bring your own device, security and social media all the time. Whether through general or industry news or conversations with friends, family, staff or board members, the message is clear enough that new technology has the attention of those around us. And whether you’re eager to bring it into your institution or not, it’s important to understand the impact these technologies bring in terms of compliance and risk. 

I, for one, don’t have all the answers. However I know a couple people who do.

Safe Systems’ chief technology officer Brendan McGowan and VP of compliance Tom Hinkel are hosting a free webinar on Nov. 6 to cover the good, the bad and the ugly of technology and banking. This hour-long event will feature a lively, point-by-point discussion between the two industry veterans, as they explore the advantages and disadvantages the latest technologies bring a financial institution, and cover a few tips and tricks on how to avoid strategic and operational risk.

If these are topics you’re talking about at your institution, please sign up here.
