Banks are at war: are we winning? [#SIBOS]

I just attended the big plenary debate here, talking about the cyber wars escalation and asking if banks are winning.  The panel was chaired by Ben Rooney, Co Editor in Chief, Informilo, and comprised a panel including:  David Wagner, Digital Security, Entrust James Kaplan, Principal, McKinsey Kris Lovejoy, General Manager, IBM Security Services Division Charles Blauner, Global Head of Information…

The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin [#SIBOS #SIBOS2014 #Innotribe]

I finish the first day of SIBOS by returning to the innotribe tent to watch the world premiere of the film The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin. It was surprisingly well attended with a packed room of popcorn munchers and beer drinkers (no puns intended). The film is 90 minutes long and traces the origins of…

It’s all about the KYC … and the rest [#SIBOS #SIBOS2014 #Innotribe]

So we just had our opening plenary for SIBOS2014 from Jamie Forese, Co-President Citi  and CEO of Citi’s Institutional Business. This was OK but, like many bank CEO presenters, was an autocue read rather than a charismatic punch. Nevertheless, there were a few key notes I took out of Jamie’s presentation. First, there are three…

Might as well have stayed at home [#SIBOS #SIBOS2014 #Innotribe]

So off we go to the Technology Forum, listed as a 'highlight of the day' session as we walked into SIBOS this morning. It's an ok affair, not especially amazing, with a writeup from the conference program as follows: "Technology leaders will crystallise the pivotal technology trends that are inexorably influencing the future of the…

Do you understand the blockchain? [#SIBOS #SIBOS2014 #Innotribe]

Sounds like something to do with a toilet that doesn’t work: the blockchain … but no, it’s all about cryptocurrencies and the future of money, our first innotribe session.  It was a good meeting, with speakers including: Barry Silbert, Founder, Secondmarket and Creator, Bitcoin Investment Trust Jeremy Allaire, Founder and CEO, Circle Internet Financial Gottfried Leibbrandt, CEO, SWIFT Udayan…

Before the madness begins [#SIBOS #SIBOS2014 #Innotribe]

So here we all are, descending on Boston's seaport area for SIBOS 2014. It seems strange to arrive here and be greeted by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse* … … but maybe that’s an omen of things to come (it’s all downhill from here). Today, a Sunday, is rehearsal for innotribe, so we are…
