On 3 September 2020 at Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra, EuroCham is kick-starting our breakfast talk series again with a discussion on the digitalisation of financial services in Cambodia.
Financial services are going through massive disruption as they become digital, mobile, instant and personalized. Digital Financial Services have been seen to reach larger audiences, increase speed and financial inclusion as well as improve the quality of services. Key to the future are the technologies that enable security while maintaining a good customer experience.
Register today and join our panel of experts for an overview of the key trends and security technologies that enable mobile finances -- including new approaches to eKYC (customer identity authentication) and other security challenges. The event will conclude with an interactive Q&A session between our speakers and participants.
