Cybersecurity in DFS: The Next 6 Years
September 30, 2021, 9:30am – 11:00am

The Columbia Institute for Tele-Information, as part of its Digital Financial Services Observatory project, will be hosting a webinar to discuss what the future of cybersecurity in the DFS field will look like. The DFSO team, along with invited thought leaders, will explore innovation and future expectations in cybersecurity and the DFS ecosystem. 

Some of the areas of coverage include:

  • What are the most pressing issues and cyber-attacks faced by the DFS ecosystem that must be addressed in the short-term, the next 1-2 years? What lurks on the horizon in the long term, from years 3-6?
  • Literacy, numeracy, and financial and digital literacy are ever-present challenges in DFS. Given a growing presence of a younger, more tech-savvy generation appearing in low and middle income countries, what are your expectations regarding this younger demographic’s impact? Where do you perceive the greatest challenges appearing in the future in the effort to increase financial inclusion, digital literacy and cyber capacity and how might they be addressed?
  • What multinational, regional and global collaboration and practices are and should we expect to see formed to thwart challenging current and new forms of cyber attacks? 
  • Innovation
    • What new technologies are being used / developed to combat fraud and cyber breaches?
    • How can AI and machine learning aid in this effort and can this (and regulatory sandboxes) help spawn cost effective solutions?
    • What might be the impact of quantum computing?
