Here’s a summary of the key takeaways:

As banks look to develop a more personalized and relevant online banking experience, our Bank Transformation Guide covers the latest trends, segmentation strategies, and data governance policies to give you the ability to deliver more compelling offers and value-added services.
Remove vulnerabilities and make regulation work for you. Vulnerabilities within a bank’s operations and IT infrastructure are cause for great concern.
