FS-ISAC 2020 Asia Pacific Virtual Summit — Organised by FS-ISAC
Accelerated adoption of technological developments due to COVID-19 has brought several efficiencies but also created information and cyber risks. The rapid digitisation of products and services presents both business opportunities and new risks such as fraud. The current risk frameworks may need considerable upgrades to support the radical changes financial institutions are confronting. For example, remote work has quickly become the norm, giving rise to important security considerations. Join the FS-ISAC 2020 Asia Pacific Virtual Summit to understand new technology trends and emerging paradigms on topics such as fraud; governance, risk management and compliance; digital currency; advanced technologies and techniques, and cloud/virtual environments. 1–2 Dec 2020 @ 9 am

Sustainable finance is moving into the mainstream today, and along with it is a growing hope that business profits no longer have to come at the expense of nature. Projects with dedicated environmental and social benefits are increasingly taking centre stage owing to a heightened sense of corporate social responsibility and as the appetite for ESG intensifies, the banking industry becomes well placed to drive product innovation and growth in ESG financing. How can green finance lead to innovative solutions that engender good financial returns and create a positive impact on nature, people and the climate? What are the Principles for Positive Impact Finance and how do they deliver the promise of economic, environmental and social sustainability? Where will the banking industry be on the green recovery roadmap come 2025? Discover the answers to these questions and more through our panel of sustainable finance experts from WWF-Malaysia, the UNEP Finance Initiative and OCBC Bank.
