"Connecting Silicon Alley with Swiss science, education and innovation"
Securing the internet is now a worldwide priority – and financial institutions, who are among the most vulnerable to such attacks, are at the forefront of determining what steps must be taken to minimize this inevitable risk. But how can the FinTech industry design regulations without impeding innovation? Does the entrepreneurial mindset to “get to the market fast,” undermine security issues? Is blockchain the next line of defense in the quest for cybersecurity?
