Increased Security & Governance with Next-Generation Analytics

We’re a few days away from DataWorks Summit San Jose (June 18-21)! We have a number of impressive speakers lined up for keynote presentations, breakout sessions, and talks in the expo theater. One of these speakers is Chris Wojdak from Symcor.

Symcor was formed by 3 of the largest banks in Canada and has, for over 20 years, proven the ability to work effectively in a utility service structure. They are a leading business processing and client communications provider supporting major banks, telecommunications, insurance, and retail companies. The company delivers value-added solutions for its clients, enabling operational excellence and enhancing customers’ experience.

Chris Wojdak, Sr. Program/ Managing Architect, leads innovation, digital transformation strategies and next generation analytics at Symcor. He has more than 20 years of experience in solutioning and implementing modern, secure and advanced solutions for the financial services industry. He is currently focused on helping customers leverage Machine Learning, IoT and Next Generation Analytics to help detect and prevent fraud as customers move to digital channels.

Breakout Session

Chris Wojdak will be speaking about Symcor’s digital transformation journey and partnering with Hortonworks to drive innovation, enterprise-grade solutions and data governance through its Fraud Platform. The platform is leveraging next-generation analytics, data governance, security, machine learning and advanced Al to provide fraud detection and prevention services to Symcor’s clients.

Fraud is a growing problem in the industry – growing in both incidence and complexity. In Canada, the estimate for the total impact of fraud is close to $2 billion – stemming from both losses and cost of operations. These opportunities open the door for Symcor to offer industry-leading digital and data services to detect and prevent current and emerging fraud.

Hortonworks worked with Symcor to transform its business with industry-leading solutions to drive digital and data services. One of the most significant challenges in the delivery of digital and data services was how to provide industry-leading data governance and security solutions to protect clients’ data.

When asked about the value his session will bring to attendees, here’s what he had to say:

“Symcor grew its business from a traditional leading processing provider in Canada to an industry-leading digital and data services provider to detect and prevent current and emerging fraud. Security and data governance to next generation analytics, learn what it takes to implement the ethical use of data for Fraud Detection and Prevention.”
