SWIFT Institute Talks

In April 2016 at the SWIFT Business Forum Canada event in Toronto, the SWIFT Institute presented three SWIFT Institute Talks. These 30-minute lectures in the style of TED-Talks were undoubtedly a highlight of the day.

  • Aaron Klein of the Brookings Institution provided insights as well as humour on the challenges in creating regulation that minimises implementation costs.
  • Cyber consultant Lance James of Unit221b gave a glimpse of the deep and dark web, and advised on how to stay ahead of increasing cyber threats.
  • Jean-Philippe Vergne from the Ivey Business School at Western University looked to the future with his views on thinking strategically about FinTech and blockchain.

If you didn’t get to see our SWIFT Institute Talks in Toronto, or wish to view (and share) them again, you can view them on SWIFT’s YouTube channel.

This year at Sibos 2016 Geneva, SWIFT Institute Talks will play a feature role with nine lectures throughout the week. Taking place in a purpose built amphitheatre on the SWIFT stand, these lectures will see experts share their knowledge on a wide range of topics, including the ABCs – AML, blockchain and cyber.

Don’t miss out.  To experience our SWIFT Institute Talks at Sibos, register now.
