Join us at the latest live event about payments in the Netherlands
It’s our pleasure to announce that Visma’s Lars Nygaard will speak about compliant digital signatures and KYC flows at the upcoming Future of Payments (Toekomst van het Betalingsverkeer) event in Amsterdam on October 1st, 2020. The event will take place at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. Lars will be joined on stage by Tames Rietdijk, CEO at BusinessForensics.
Safe and compliant business transactions in a changing payments landscape
When we talk about payments, we talk about an industry in constant flux. Regulations have become increasingly stringent to prevent financial crime. Banks and other financial institutions must perform extensive KYC checks before signing contracts or accepting new customers. If the business transaction involves private persons, they must check whether they are politically exposed. If it involves companies, they must collect information about where they are located and who owns the shares.
Failure to comply with these due diligence checks can lead to heavy fines and harm the institution’s reputation. But collecting this information is typically a very manual and time-intensive process. It can take several weeks or months before an agreement is signed. That is why it’s important to digitize and harmonize sign and compliance processes.
Round Table hosted by BusinessForensics
Next to being a co-keynote speaker, Visma Connect Partner BusinessForensics, will also host a round-table at the event. Led by Koen Juffermans, the topic of the round-table discussion will be around one of the biggest challenges of technological change in the KYC field: Human versus Machine. An innovative system alone is not enough – you will also have to make your organization think, work, and train differently - from management to analyst. You will need to train your employees to be critical, strive for constant improvement, and understand data. Change management is one of the greatest challenges of today.
