Data Governance:
The Key to Compete in a Digitized Financial Services Market


In today’s digital evolution and transformation, scalable and sustainable governance of data is more important than ever. Will the new realities of data governance be a barrier or business opportunity?

In a big-data-fast reality, many financial institutions have to manage hundreds of thousands of data sources, potentially millions of different data sets, and a growing number of self-service users consuming and trying to manage that information.

At the same time, new and more prescriptive data legislation raises many questions on how to govern data in a user-friendly, secure, profitable and compliant way. Thus, it has become essential for every company to review its data governance policies. The handling of data has become a key topic on executives’ agenda.

Regulatory regimes around privacy, such as Thailand’s PDPA and globally the GDPR, HIPAA, GLBA, or CCPA, have put data governance in the news. Other data-related laws concerning security, localization, transfers and sharing of data continue to shape a complex regulatory environment. This trend in the global data market will soon be enhanced with new legislation related to the development and use of artificial intelligence.  

Against this background, data privacy has become an important compliance but also strategic consideration for all financial institutions. Data protection programs are setting the foundations for the continuing digitisation of the financial services sector as the data market becomes further regulated. 

At this APC live-webinar we will discuss how the financial services sector can embrace the opportunity of digitization by laying robust data governance foundations through sustainable privacy compliance programs. How can financial institutions comply and compete long-term in the increasingly regulated data market thus benefiting from a data-centric approach and the new opportunities with the use of artificial intelligence? How will data governance create a new playing field for FSI?

A top level expert panel will discuss how regulation is driving the digital transformation of the financial services sector, regional and global best practices as well as technology solutions that help meet the challenges and leverage the opportunities.

Key take-aways from this Expert Webinar are:

  • – How data privacy has become an important compliance for all financial institutions
  • – Date governance as strategic consideration will effect commerce to the max
  • – How Data protection programs are setting the foundations for the continuing digitization of FSI
