Session A
Managing Climate Change Risk within the Enterprise Risk Management Program
Banking Northeast Main Stage

Climate change is a global threat to every person and every organization. Organizations in every industry will develop different tactics for transitioning to lower carbon economies—and although these transitions may bring heightened risk, failing to adapt prompts even greater risk. Financial institutions occupy a pivotal place in our society as employers and providers of capital to all other industries. Climate change risk could come in the form of:

  • Extreme natural disasters
  • Agricultural shifts and disruptions
  • Widespread disruption throughout the value-chain of carbon-based companies
  • Volatility of investments in the new energy industry

To reduce the risk of the negative effects associated with these possibilities, banks and credit unions must evaluate an enterprise-wide risk assessment for present threats and vulnerabilities. During this session, we’ll detail how to identify these risks and locate opportunities for mitigation. From creation to adoption, we’ll discuss what you should do first to get these initiatives running and how to delegate responsibility to team members for proper organization. We’ll also show how you can present these findings to your board, leadership team, employees, and customers to ensure proper procedural implementation.


You’ll learn:

  • How to identify operational, credit, and liquidity risks within the institution
  • How to demonstrate and document the progress of risk mitigation strategies and approaches
  • How to make your institution stand out as a reliable, ethical presence in the market"

Session A
CXO Roadmap To Designing A Fintech Strategy
Banking Northeast Main Stage

Senior Execs struggle with how to pick the best alternative fintech suppliers while simultaneously de-handcuffing from one-sided legacy core relationships. With so many choices appearing in the market CEOs want to know which neo-cores are ready? What fintech suppliers are mature enough to partner? How does the bank structure a greenfield deal with a new market entrant and manage the associated business risk? 

CEOs need strategic insights on how to set the vision and direct their franchise to take advantage of the fintech opportunity without creating too much disruption with clients, staff and the bottom line.  Information is pouring in from all directions on fintech and it has become difficult to adopt the right strategy in a fragmented evolving marketplace providing many options.

This session will provide an unbiased, no BS summary for non-technical CEOs ready to lead their franchise in the new fintech era while minimizing the long term hold that legacy core IT suppliers have on them.

Get Your Head In The Cloud: Securing Cloud Services
Banking Northeast Main Stage

In technology today, it seems like all roads lead to the cloud in one form or another—public, private, or hybrid.  However, security strategy for most organizations has yet to fully adapt to allow for true cloud enablement.  This session examines methods for improving the security of cloud infrastructure while demonstrating what could happen if your head isn’t in the cloud.
