2nd Annual Banking Technology Summit Egypt
Venue: JW Marriott Hotel Cairo
|Event Date/Time: Sep 22, 2013||End Date/Time: Sep 25, 2013|
A number of banks in Egypt are looking to introduce Sharia-compliant services, therefore grow the market outreach and boost their profits by providing Islamic banking.
Business continuity and risk management are also at the forefront of discussions, as banks need to look at alternative ways of providing uninterrupted services to minimise service disruption time. Online and mobile banking are gaining more attention as a way to provide more advanced services to the customers, but also serve as additional platforms of remote access in critical situations.
With recent initiatives, technology innovations and general social instability in the country, the risk of fraud and money laundering is increasing, leaving banking technology professionals with a headache of sourcing software upgrades and better monitoring systems. Topics like enhancing data warehouse and developing cybersecurity framework stand out inevitably when we speak about banking technology.
As competition rises, banks’ IT investment in Egypt is expected to grow in the coming years. Established in 2012 and endorsed by the Egyptian Banking Institute, the 2nd Annual Banking Technology Summit Egypt serves as a unique platform for government, banks and solution providers to meet and discuss market challenges, improvements and opportunities. Leading bankers will meet again on 22 – 25 September 2013 for 4 days of strategic and technical discussions, knowledge sharing and networking at Conrad Cairo Hotel.
