IT security and the bank of the future

9 September 2014

The financial sector is facing a time of change, which sets new demands for business models, product innovation, customer relations and not least IT security. And it is exactly these topics that are on the agenda on 11 September, when Axelborg sets the setting for the yearly Finance IT 2014.

Will Google become a big player in the financial sector in the future? Why does the German Fidor Bank accept World of Warcraft coins and offer customers a better interest, if they generate likes on Facebook? This is just some of the prevailing questions, which will be in focus at the year’s biggest event within finance and IT in Denmark, Finance IT Day 2014.

“We have managed to gather key actors from companies, organizations as well as scientists from Denmark and abroad to the Finance IT day, who will make the sector more knowledgeable about the future,” says Head of Secretariat, CFIR (Copenhagen Finance IT Region), Anette Broløs.
“With the Se & Hør (Danish weekly magazine) case, the topic of IT security became a hot topic in Denmark as well internationally this fall, where both the EU and the US launch large campaigns about cyber security. At the Finance IT Day 2014, we will all be more informed about the general threats and the newest research within the field of IT security,” Anette Broløs further explains.
At the Finance IT Day, there will also be discussions and keynotes that are related to the prevailing growth agenda. Among other things, leading experts will discuss what it takes for successful, Danish asset managers to expand and capitalize on their position of strength by making Copenhagen into a North European capital for asset management.
