Wednesday, November 20, 2013
Resorts Casino Hotel, Atlantic City, NJ



Speakers John Siracusa, Rashaad Bajwa, and Mike Branton.

General Session: Making a Measurable Difference in Your Social Media with Great Content
Some of the best brands in the world build their social media strategies around 2 simple points. Great content and great distribution of that content. In this session you will learn what it means to create and distribute great content that will get your social pages buzzing. This session is targeted towards all departments of a bank, not just marketing.

Presented by: John Siracusa, president & CEO, mOSa eBank Marketing Services          

Plus, the agenda has 8 more educational sessions where you’ll hear from experts who have a pulse on technology and trends in the financial services field.

Securing Bank Smartphones, Tablets and Laptops
Mobile devices doesn’t just mean Blackberries anymore. From iPhones to Androids, to tablets, laptops and more – employees are accessing email from more devices than ever. Sounds innocent enough, however the reality is where there is email there is confidential bank information. Gone are the days where email is just on the office PC…an average user now accesses email from 3+ devices and the regulators want to know you have a way to manage them. Learn about how to manage ALL your mobile endpoints – not just smartphones and tablets, but laptops and remote PCs as well. Learn pros, cons and costs of different technologies to secure your environment.

Presented by: Rashaad Bajwa, CISSP, president/CEO, Domain Computer Services, Inc.  

Making Mobile Banking Even Better!
Your customers love mobile banking. They’re adopting it at record rates. But it’s the same as your competition. And customers don’t love it enough to gladly pay for it. So this makes it repeat the history of other “revolutionary” banking products – it’s good if it’s free, try to charge a fee for it and… not so much. So how do you make your mobile banking presence better to differentiate from competitors? Join us for our presentation, and we’ll share how.

Presented by: Mike Branton, managing partner, StrategyCorps
