What, for you, are the benefits of attending a conference like the ‘X-Tech 2019 Convention’?

In today’s world, cyber risk only continues to become more prominent, and every industry and business is interconnected. It’s crucial that all businesses and departments understand and are prepared for a potential cyber attack, and educational, informative events, like X-Tech, are crucial in helping manage the problem.

Phil Renaud, Executive Director, The Risk Institute

The benefits are networking, sharing ideas and techniques to navigate risk and new technologies. In addition, with the Las Vegas venue, having fun on the strip and building relationships with people in the industry. For me personally, it catching up with friends and learning from the other speakers.

Craig Spielmann, Former Global Head of Enterprise Risk Management Strategy, First Data

The X-Tech Convention brings together a wide range of attendees and presenters from all over the globe. The information that is presented in the formal sessions and roundtables should be extremely valuable to attendees.

Dave Lott, Payment Risk Expert, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta

I will discuss a framework that helps enterprise innovate securely in blockchain and blockchain applications. Blockchain is not a magic potion – it won’t solve all the problems in your company. Most of us have heard the saying, “to a man who only has a hammer, everything he encounters begins to look like a nail.”  I encourage companies to avoid falling into a trap of thinking blockchain is the answer to everything.

Olga V. Mack, VP, Strategy, Quantstamp

The opportunity to speak at any conference, including X-Tech 2019 Convention, is always an opportunity for me to share my own industry experience but also the opportunity to validate my current views and potentially calibrate them through the connecting and discussion with the industry peers. I am always looking forward to connect and learn new stuff. There’s always a good thing, because our learning never stops.

Milos Dunjic, AVP, Enterprise Payments Technology Innovation, TD Bank

The benefit to attend conferences and conventions like X-Tech is to hear other industry experts share their opinions on the current financial innovation landscape, to see what other products are being developed, and to meet fellow innovators and leaders of the industry.

Ethen Yao, Head of Innovation and Intellectual Properties, Blast

It’s always great to meet with industry leaders for a couple of days to share knowledge, brainstorm, and get updated on the latest trends in the industry. I look forward to talking about the various ways AI and ML can be used for detecting fraudulent applications and show a few cool examples of how we do that at BlueVine. I’m also excited to share my thoughts on how we can improve, as in industry in protecting ourselves against fraud.

Ido Lustig, Chief Risk Officer, BlueVine
