Data Ready: Staying Ahead in a Constantly Evolving Market With increasing regulatory, media and public focus, it is no surprise that data is higher up boards agendas than ever before. Companies are facing increasing demands and expectations, both externally and internally, on not only keeping ahead of the curve with their own data, but also in extracting the additional data to support requests from third parties and regulatory bodies. At our SIO Forum in Glasgow in July, PwC will facilitate a group discussion of the key data themes and challenges being experienced in the industry. We also welcome representatives from MISYS and TISA who will contribute some real examples of the challenges and solutions they have experienced working with their clients. In particular, the session will cover: how we keep on top of regulatory demands how we gain confidence in the accuracy of the increasing volumes of data being reported how we keep track of our data when third parties are involved in aspects of data processing maintaining client data and tracing ‘lost’ clients the technologies and other enablers available to store and track data as well as reporting tools available As ever registration is essential and places can be booked using password SIOforum2016.Find out more
