Navigating New Threats in Digital Transformation — How to Prepare with a Focus on Fraud and KYC

Join experts from Alloy and Valley Bank as they discuss lessons learned from building a culture of digital transformation.

Recorded on April 25, 2023

A bank is no longer a place you go. It’s a thing you do — increasingly from a mobile phone — and consumers are now more than ever weighing the importance of that experience over proximity to a bank branch. And while it’s impossible to predict what’s to come, it’s safe to assume a digital strategy is critical to any financial institution’s future success.

But undergoing digital transformation comes with a new set of challenges — from regulatory requirements to new types of fraud. To compete online, you’ll need a strong digital transformation strategy with partners and tools you can rely on.

Join digital transformation experts from Alloy and Valley Bank as they discuss:

  • The power of digital transformation and how it can set up your business for future success
  • The importance of partnership between business/product and fraud/AML teams during digital transformation
  • How to overcome challenges, lessons learned, and the outlook of digital transformation in 2023 and beyond
