Strategic Product Manager, Tieto

Tieto is monitoring many European jurisdictions in the process of introducing PSD2, which mandates banks to open up their APIs to third-party service providers. Simultaneously, we closely follow the reaction of the financial community in other markets, such as Singapore, Russia, China or Nigeria. It is evident that implementing the mandates can be a complicated process that eats up a lot of time and resources. More

When it comes to PSD2 and Open Banking, the European Union is like a test lab for the rest of the world. Other countries are closely following how the directive is going to work and what challenges the financial market will face. The experiences in the EU will be a benchmark for everyone else. More

Strategic Product Manager, Tieto

Open Banking is bound to reshape the banking industry and its services. The driver comes from the EU in the form of PSD2, short for Revised Payment Service Directive, which opens up the EU payment market to companies offering consumer- or business-oriented payments based on access to information about the payment account. However, we’re still waiting for the influx of innovative services. More

In many ways, help desks hold the keys to the kingdom of all IT environments. They are also helpful by nature. This makes help desks a favorite target for cyber criminals to perform social engineering tricks to gain access. What can we do to make help desks serve users in a more secure manner? More

Yulia Filipovich

Compliance Manager, Tieto Compliance Cloud, Tieto

Cyber security was ranked as one of the top five global risks for businesses at World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in 2018.

Steve Warner

Head of Sales, Western Europe, Tieto Retail Payment Solutions

This ambitious claim from the show's organisers certainly had me thinking beforehand that we were starting to see a shift in the focus of our industry from one that was prepared to just talk about a 'collaborative' approach to a mindset that had really embraced the new innovators. More

Sales & Marketing Director, NSEC AB, Part of Tieto Group

Peter Drucker said, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast". This idea has since been adopted by many successful corporate leaders over the years, and many organizations use this as a competitive advantage in their business. My question to you is; Is this also applicable within the Cybersecurity space? Will a Cybersecurity team with a strong culture have a better chance to defend their organization than a team with a clear strategy? More

The internet has affected democracy in a large scale. It helps us spread and receive free information, enables discussion, and can be used to promote human rights and government accountability. However, digital democracy isn’t evenly distributed across the globe, and some nations and demographics are much better positioned to utilize its opportunities. There are differences within societies, too, with a growing digital divide and polarization. More

Environmental impacts will be weighed up more precisely in the future, and this will be both an opportunity and a threat for businesses. A wise company will win over customers, receive financing on more affordable terms, and ensure its position in investors’ portfolios. Indifference to environmental issues could lead to a gradually increasing systemic risk that may erupt like a financial crisis. More

I guess many of us have already had some kind of a conversation with a machine. The chat bots have rapidly become a standard solution to handle customer service tasks digitally. For example, over 80 % of private customer service chats are started with a chat bot at Finnish insurance company If. Apple iPhone users have familiarised themselves with Siri, a voice-command personal assistant. You might even have a voice-controlled smart home facilitated by one of the triplets, Apple, Google or Amazon’s smart speaker. More
