The Banking Cyber Security Forum London

18th June 2019

CCT Venues, 193 Marsh Wall, Isle of Dogs, London

Caroline Kennedy, Santander

Today has been a very thought provoking day and provided me with a lot of food for thought, I’m going to take away ideas and suggestions from what I’ve heard today, what I’ve learned from others and its given me an opportunity to prepare for future conversations with vendors about the solutions that will work best for my institution.

About the Event

Nearly 563 million customer data records were compromised in 2018 alone, GDPR and data protection remains king and 2019 is set to be the year when the Payment Services Directive (PSD2) completely changes the face of banking.

The pressure is on banks to remain competitive whilst maintaining impregnable information security structures, complying with stringent data regulations and adapting to new regulatory drives to open up the sector to new entrants.

Managing information security at a bank means taking account of a growing value chain including Third Party Providers (TPPs), Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), employees and customers. Ensuring growth, even for tier one incumbents, in a post Open Banking market means maximising technology to meet customer and regulatory demands for more – and better – digital banking services and changing tack to see compliance as a competitive advantage.

The Banking Cyber Security Forum is an exclusive, top flight event exclusively for senior banking executives, set to address each of these challenges and opportunities and encourages peer-to-peer conversation via a programme built around conversation opportunities with peers from across the banking sector in Europe.

  • Invest in yourself: take time out to grow your expertise.


I found today’s event very informative, there was a wide range of very credible speakers and the tables and discussion panels we’ve had afterwards have been incredibly useful and informative. Events like these are imperative, you learn new things, you learn how your competitors are actually utilising new technologies, you learn from industry professionals and you increase your own professionalism into the bargain, for me this is an absolute essential for modern day financial professionals.

Events like this are very important because it brings together a lot of working professionals who face challenges on a day to day basis, it helps give perspective on the challenges that other companies are facing and it broadens your view of other realities of the industry, it’s very easy to get lost in the day to day of your own work and believe that this is the entire universe, but stepping out of it at events like this are really great ways of showing what your own company is doing, showing how you yourself are reaching financial crime best practice but also getting new information and best practices on what ‘s coming and currently happening from other people who know what they’re doing.

I think it’s brought the right individuals at the right size, so people from diverse backgrounds with the right knowledge set, from MLROs to tech experts to challenger banks, I think it has the right set of individuals.

Thought provoking. Everybody has been challenging their own held beliefs, people might not change them but it’s all about listening and being open to learn and share experiences. I think it’s important that you plan and prepare for events like this and see them as part of what you have to achieve during the year. You need to know what’s happening in your organisation but also what’s happening in a wider space.

*Commenting on previous Transform Finance event.

I attended to get some views on the challenges that my peers are facing and see if they are similar to mine, and share thoughts on things to consider that I may not have so far. The peer-to-peer discussion was really insightful in getting information from other banks on what their concerns are and what they’re doing, which is very important because most of the issues I’m dealing with day to day.

*Commenting on previous Transform Finance event.

You’ll learn, whatever level you are at in your organisation, it’s a real cross section of people both from your peer firms and it’s always good to hear what they’re doing, also to hear what’s developing as best market practice. Today has been really interactive and open, which has been really beneficial for me.
