Aimed at challenging students in all levels of further education, the SWIFT Institute Challenge encourages young scholars to come up with solutions to current global industry challenges in the financial sector. The 2018 competition will address the issue of data privacy in an Open API (application programming interfaces) environment, specifically, how to keep personal information safe. . The SWIFT Institute Challenge is available to any recognised university or further educational establishment based in Australia.

Entrants will be required to identify a solution that would help secure personal information in an open environment. Applicants must submit a written report of no more than 1,000 words and will be judged by financial industry practitioners.
