Banking on Sustainability

BPFI is delighted to announce its first full conference dedicated to implications of climate change for banking in Ireland.

The BPFI Banking on Sustainability half day Conference , in association with Deloitte, will take place on Thursday 24th October from 9.00am – 1.00pm in the BPFI Conference Centre.

The Conference will provide delegates with a unique opportunity to consider the implications of climate change for the financial services sector in Ireland. This BPFI event will provide insights into changes to the financial services framework to support the transition to a low-carbon, more resource-efficient and sustainable economy, the integration of climate-related risk into banks’ risk management and strategy, and banks’ experience to date

Climate change requires a global perspective and local action: How will the European Union’s ambition to deliver on the commitments of the Paris Climate Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals impact on financial services providers? What is current thinking on the incorporation of effective climate risk management in banking? Ireland now has its Climate Action Plan – what are the opportunities and challenges inherent in in de-carbonising the economy?

The half-day seminar will feature expert presentation and discussion on sustainable finance, ensuring the climate resilience of assets, impending supervisory response, finance for energy efficiency products and best practice in banking.

Pat Cox, Chair of Green Finance Ireland Committee and former President of the European Parliament, will be one of our key note speakers, along with Oliver Wyman on Climate Risk; European Banking Authority on the forthcoming EU Legislation on Sustainable Finance; BNP Paribas on the integration of sustainability into a bank and sponsor Deloitte on de-carbonising the Irish economy, among other panellists.

Cyber Conference

Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI), in association with Accenture, will host a half day Cyber Conference on Tuesday 15th October 2019 in The Marker Hotel, Dublin 2.

With organisations investing increasing capital and resources to protect themselves and their customers from cybercrime, this dedicated conference will cover various aspects of cybercrime and cybersecurity. In particular it will examine new frameworks/operating models as well as other trending topics and technologies, for example the benefits of threat intelligence sharing, the current threat landscape, the importance of end-to-end data integrity, particular focus on cloud security, plus learnings and experience from a successful public private partnership between law enforcement and the banking sector.

Delegates will be provided with valuable global insights, including strategic approaches from key decision makers, cyber security experts and law enforcement who will discuss how to secure data, infrastructures/platforms, customer base, stakeholders and staff can be better secured.

While the financial sector has developed some of the most sophisticated defence and risk mitigation capabilities to address cybercrime, the threat landscape has become more complex due to rapidly evolving techniques, attack vectors and delivery channels used by cyber criminals.

With a successful online or cyberattack capable of causing significant financial, operational and reputational risk and harm issues for businesses, the sector needs to continue to mitigate against the evolving threats and cyber risks by better understanding what peer banks, institutions, law enforcement and others are currently developing and implementing in order to better combat, counter, detect, prepare and respond to the on-going challenges. Join us on the 15 October for this exciting event.

SME Breakfast Briefing: Protect your Business from Fraud

BPFI’s FraudSMART Programme and Small Firms Association (SFA) will host a breakfast briefing on Fraud Awareness on Tuesday 1 October at 9.00am.

Most businesses think they are protected against fraud however fraud against Irish businesses is on the rise.

Fraudsters are increasingly sophisticated and use what is known as social engineering to manipulate their targets. Essentially this is using publicly available information to trick you into taking an action that may not be in your company’s best interest. Many SMEs do not have teams of IT staff to support them, and many believe either they are not at risk or that it is too difficult to do anything about it.

This event is designed to make you aware of current scams and how you can prevent your company falling victim with practical advice and will be led by BPFI’s Head of Fraud Prevention Niamh Davenport, with a panel discussion including An Garda Siochana, Deloitte and others to be confirmed.
