About PSD2

On 13 January 2018, the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) will enter into European Union law. With PSD2, bank customers should be able to grant a third party (TPP) access to make payments or retrieve information through open APIs in any bank, in just the same way that customers do with online apps. The directive will affect banking institutions of all sizes.

Key take-aways
  • Insights into how your bank could turn the challenge of PSD2  into a competitive advantage.
  • Supply customers with API access -across multiple platforms.
Time: Thursday 16 November 2017, 9.00 - 15.30

Perspectives on GDPR and the cloud as an enabler of business development
by Ole Kjeldsen, National Technology Officer, Microsoft Denmark
”EU and FSI authorities are introducing new and in many ways stricter regulations, which are often seen as obstacles to business development. However, it is possible not only to use compliance as a positive competitive edge, but it may also be seen as a much needed prerequisite for maintaining and building customer trust in increasingly digitised services. The compliance task at hand, however, can be staggering, and the use of select cloud computing platforms just might be part of the solution!”

Get insights into how your bank could turn these challenges into a competitive advantage in this lively and highly engaging talk from a master in strategic and digital thinking.
