9:00 am - 9:25 am Fireside Chat: Creating a 'Data Driven' Culture in a Neobank Environment

Varo Money has a mission to help people make progress with their financial lives. As the leading challenger bank in the US, Varo has been granted preliminary approval for a de novo national bank charter by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and aims to be the first mobile-centric national bank in U.S. history. Varo is in a unique opportunity to build a data organization with the future of banking products in mind, free from the constraints of legacy systems and historical processes. Fiona will discuss how the data organization is being created around a more proactive approach to data as a critical business driver, including:

  • Creating a culture of data stewardship where everyone treats data as a strategic asset
  • Building a data infrastructure to enable innovation and agility
  • Maintaining rigor to meet regulatory requirements while prioritizing an 'offense' approach to data strategies

9:25 am - 9:55 am Panel Discussion and Live Polling: Defining Success With Machine Learning and AI

In mid-August 2019 the market experienced a volatile trading session when the closing prices sent from the New York Stock Exchange were incorrect. The error was random and small in magnitude, but most firms’ machine learning algorithms didn’t pick up the error. The more traditional reconciliations would have detected this error, which raises the question, where do these technologies work and where is it hype? What analysis can be done to do subsequent tests that you didn’t write the rules for?

Panelists will discuss:

  • The current scope of applications for AI and machine learning
  • How and when practitioners need to be involved
  • Methods to speed up rule creation for data quality
  • How to build standard governance, oversight and controls for risk management

The cloud offers tremendous potential for agility, scalability, analytics and more efficient governance and regulatory reporting. The shift to the cloud is tied to the new and evolving data strategies and architecture as the industry moves away from legacy applications and databases. How is the cloud being aligned to support business goals and strategic plans? Does cloud migration require you to fix any problems in your current data lake environment? How do you handle different jurisdictional questions of the cloud?


Panelists will discuss:

  • Architecting a hybrid scenario where one database is on-prem with data coexisting in the cloud
  • Migrating data stores, data feeds and applications that are used to run the business
  • Reporting, customer and client data, and determining where to start first without disrupting operations
  • Conducting risk assessments and determining infrastructure that needs to be built out

10:25 am - 11:05 am AM Recharge Refreshment & Networking Break In The Data Management Café

FIMA wants to make sure you stay energized throughout the rest of the conference, so head over to the Data Management Café, grab a cup of coffee and snack to fuel your note taking.

Traditionally data organizations have been most concerned with data integrity and quality. But the rise in data breaches and influx of privacy regulations are requiring data organizations to take greater responsibility for protection and privacy, in partnership with the information and cyber security organization as well as compliance and legal. How do you manage your information sets with tougher benchmarks? Does the prospect of audits represent a hurdle in the road toward secure data? 


Panelists will discuss:

  • Effective controls for data, including authorization, encryption, tokenization and purging
  • Capturing enough information required for the granularity of reporting, while balancing the needs for privacy, including masking and removing information
  • Understanding how to manage data risk, including data governance, architecture and quality measurements
  • Data permissioning to manage data loss prevention to guard against intentional or unintentional leakage of data
  • Audits, and the role they play in ensuring market data is protected

11:35 am - 11:55 am When Consent Does Not Work - Maximizing Lawful Value of AI, Data Sharing & Combining

The unpredictable and sometimes unimaginable use of data in AI and other secondary (further) processing is a feature, not a bug. For these data uses to achieve their full potential, safeguards must ensure that privacy rights are protected while still fostering an environment that encourages innovation. This keynote addresses how technical and organizational controls can help to support ethical and lawful data use when consent does not work.


  • AI and secondary (further) data processing have the potential to advance societal goals
  • Consent is often not appropriate for AI and secondary (further) processing
  • Technical and organizational controls can help to support alternative approaches to ethical and lawful data use
