Tech­no­logy Trans­form­a­tion – Fin­an­cial Ser­vices
The Fin­an­cial Ser­vices (FS) sec­tor is a lead­er in pro­tect­ing its tech in­fra­struc­ture, re­flect­ing the high de­gree of scru­tiny from reg­u­lat­ors. FS firms are at a tip­ping point, with large in­cum­bents ey­ing smal­ler firms and fintechs for their IP and skills to re­main com­pet­it­ive while con­sid­er­ing up­grades to leg­acy sys­tems. Sim­ul­tan­eously, reg­u­la­tion is chan­ging to re­flect new and emer­ging tech­no­lo­gies and threats.This re­port is a deep dive in­to data first pro­duced for the re­port Tech­no­logy Trans­form­a­tion: Man­aging Risks in a Chan­ging Land­scape. This saw over 500 people sur­veyed from mul­tiple in­dus­tries across the world. Here we look in de­tail at the 85 re­spond­ents from the FS sec­tor, and their per­spect­ives on the risks as­so­ci­ated with busi­ness-crit­ic­al tech­no­lo­gies, in­clud­ing emer­ging tech­no­lo­gies. This sec­tor is more highly reg­u­lated than most of the oth­er sec­tors sur­veyed, with many his­tor­ic­al tech dis­putes re­lat­ing to reg­u­la­tion. But the fo­cus of reg­u­la­tion is shift­ing, and so are the risks af­fect­ing this sec­tor.Down­load the Tech­no­logy Trans­form­a­tion Fin­an­cial Ser­vices re­port now to read about:Drivers of tech­no­logy ad­op­tion in the fin­an­cial ser­vices sec­torNew risks emer­ging and tra­di­tion­al bar­ri­ers to risk man­age­ment­Cur­rent tech­no­logy risks in the fin­an­cial ser­vices sec­tor­Fu­ture risks, in­clud­ing AI and crypto­cur­ren­cies, and meas­ures to deal with themPre­ferred ap­proaches to tech­no­logy dis­pute res­ol­u­tion for the fin­an­cial ser­vices sec­tor
