Securing the internet is now a worldwide priority – and financial institutions, who are among the most vulnerable to such attacks, are at the forefront of determining what steps must be taken to minimize this inevitable risk. But how can the FinTech industry design regulations without impeding innovation? Does the entrepreneurial mindset to “get to the market fast,” undermine security issues? Is blockchain the next line of defense in the quest for cybersecurity?

A panel made up of Swiss and American FinTech and cybersecurity experts will discuss the underpinnings of these challenges in digital finance. The conversation will be followed by a Q&A session and networking reception. Learn more about the speakers and get your ticket here!
