Innovation Trends: Buyside Technology & Operations Summit - Day 2 Recap

Panel 1: Increase Security & Control on Everything, Everywhere

Whilst security has always been front and centre for investment firms with a lot at stake, this year has truly tested defence practices and security frameworks utilised by the sector, globally. The unprecedented spread of the global COVID-19 pandemic has called for firms to identify and quickly mitigate any new security gaps in this unpredictable, fast-evolving landscape. This new landscape also demands for fast adoption of advanced security and control measures to survive.

Topics of discussion:

  • Gaps and vulnerabilities to watch out for in the current landscape

  • The importance of implementing access controls and conditional access in the modernised digital workplace

  • The need to interact more effectively via digital channels to ensure organisational stability and security
