    2023 was an explosive year for Generative AI. The mainstream emergence of tools like Chat GPT generated a huge amount of excitement and hype. In the wake of this, 93% of fintechs believe that generative AI is poised to revolutionise the fintech and financial services sector. But how much of the hype has materialised into real impact?
    Artificial Intelligence has long been a transformational force in finance, helping to boost efficiency, improve security and handle the vast amounts of data that the modern system relies on. So what will the impact of this new GenAI wave be? 
    In 2024’s first episode of Payments Innovation, Piers Marais, Chief Product Officer, Currencycloud, speaks to Ram Gopal, Director of the Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology, to go beyond the buzzwords and learn more about the use cases being realised right now.

    Fortifying fintech: What you need to know about cybersecurity

    Fortifying fintech: What you need to know about cybersecurity

    Cyberattacks are on the increase, with bad actors proliferating around the world. By the end of 2023, according to Cybercrime magazine, hackers will have caused $8 trillion in global damages. In 2022, Moody’s listed banks as being at high risk of attack, and Fintech is also in the firing line. 
    Financial firms hold extremely sensitive data on millions of customers, and vulnerabilities can be exploited for lucrative ransoms. Fintech is meant to be the ‘tech-savvy’ cousin of traditional finance. It’s innovative, fast-moving, and often API and cloud-driven. But how secure is it? Is the industry doing enough to protect the consumers and businesses that rely on these products?
    In the latest episode of Payments Innovation, Cara Hayward, Director of Strategic Partnerships for North America, Currencycloud and Visa Cross-Border Solutions, spoke with Fraser Scott, VP of Product at threat modelling platform IriusRisk, to find out more.

    Special Edition: Black History Month

    Special Edition: Black History Month

    What does Black History Month mean to you? It could be a time to recognise the achievements of the Black community, to draw attention to ongoing problems with racism, or an opportunity to stand as an ally of Black friends and colleagues. October is Black History Month in the UK, and this year, under the theme of “Saluting Our Sisters”, the event celebrates the critical role that Black women have played in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities. 
    In this Special Edition of Payments Innovation, Product Manager Miada Hassan speaks to two Currencycloud colleagues, Director of Sales Development Fumbi Banjoko and VP of Banking Ola Malomo, who last year launched Currencycloud’s first Afro-Caribbean Employee Resource Group, Bl@CC (Black at Currencycloud). She digs into why Black History Month resonates for them, and what companies can learn from it.
