The race for digital supremacy has already started, now it’s not just about survival, it’s about winning, achieving the goals and exploring technologies that can accelerate the banking sector into the digital age with a focus on emerging channels such as Blockchain, Next- Generation Payments, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Cyber Security. Along with the new trends, Big Techs are shifting to financial services
Gary Brown, GDPR Program Director, Banco Santander UK while attributing the threats associated with shifting of Big Techs to the financial services explains, “Whilst Fin Techs need capital, Big Techs already have investment backing, but do not have at this stage a demonstrable track record in FS. The banks should again look to partner with chosen Big Techs to make game-changing strategic marriages.”
Further explaining the threats associated with shifting of Big Techs to the financial services, Cauchi David, Head of Compliance, Office of the Information and Data Protection Commissioner states, “The Tech Giants have revolutionized the way humans interact and carry out their daily activities. They have also given more power and convenience to the end-user, by presenting different services and options under one platform.
Change is inevitable and control is also likely to be shifting from the industry to its clients as these will entrust the platform providers.
The challenge is how to strike the right balance between convenience and intrusiveness. Big Techs already process huge amounts of personal data about individuals and their activities, including profiling on a micro-level. Adding transaction and online purchasing habits to all this will make a dream come true for niche-marketing enthusiasts but not for data protection activists and watchdogs.”
