Who's looking at you? Your ocean of data--is it secure? Leading banks and capital markets firms process huge amounts of data from traditional and non-traditional sources. Regulatory risk is present in all of these businesses and there is always internal risk. A few rogue individuals can cause extraordinary losses if their malicious activities go unnoticed. And compliance teams need to analyze both data-in-motion and data-at-rest to detect suspicious activity in real-time.

Join Diego Baez, GM Financial Services for Hortonworks, as he discusses the top lessons learned over the last two years, from his work with over 150 Financial Services Companies across the globe, including Global Mega Banks, Regional institutions, Hedge Funds, Fintech, Regulators and Central banks. Hear as he covers the key lessons learned from these clients - what is working, what is not - and which institutions are harnessing the power of BigData and Analytics to transform their business.
