New Economy Series - FinTech: The Confluence of Finance and Technology
Everyday, millions of people leverage Financial technology (FinTech), often without knowing it. Services like PayPal, Venmo, and their underlying technologies have blurred the line between finance and technology. With the rapid development and implementation of FinTech, regulators are attempting to keep up. How do institutions of higher education best capitalize on this critical field while also keeping consumer and institutional financial data and technology processes safe?

UPCEA, in partnership with ThriveDX and Lightcast, has produced a series of webinars to address new topics and industry developments in the new economy. The webinars will focus on understanding these industries, skills professionals need to succeed in these fields, and the role higher education will need to play to make the best and most secure uses of these rapidly developing opportunities. The second of these webinars will focus on FinTech and will detail emerging technologies, cybersecurity components and considerations necessary for safe usage of the technologies, regulations, occupational demographics, and hiring and skill development needs that are coming to attention as FinTech usage grows.
