What was the cause of financial crisis? Mr. Bookstaber will review the current crisis and provide a broader perspective using his book as the starting point. How did risk management fail? Did the mad scientists of Wall Street “blow up the lab” with their esoteric derivatives, or is the problem one of organization and incentives? Where do we go from here and how can technology help?

Managing Risk in the Post-2008 Financial Crisis Era
A year ago, managing exposure and limits in real-time, rather than end-of-day, was seen as a “nice to have.” Today, firms are moving quickly to implement real-time risk management systems. This session will focus on how firms are managing risk in the post-2008 financial crisis era, through two case studies—one broker and one institutional bank. Attendees will learn how firms are using a combination of Complex Event Processing technology and LiveOLAP to get an accurate, granular continuous intelligence on risk, and apply controls and actions to mitigate risk in portfolios and positions. How firms will use continuous intelligence as a competitive advantage will also be examined.

Catch Me if You Can
Frank Abagnale, a former con artist extraordinaire whose crimes inspired Steven Spielberg’s 2002 film, Catch Me if You Can, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. Mr. Abagnale is now one of the world's most respected authorities on forgery, embezzlement, identity theft and secure documents and heads Abagnale & Associates, a financial fraud consultancy company. After a five-year international crime spree in the 1960’s, he was arrested at age 21 for cashing millions in fraudulent checks worldwide and posing as a doctor, lawyer, and airline pilot. Following his five-year prison term, he was released after agreeing to help the FBI as an expert on fraud. In his presentation Mr. Abignale provides insight into his life as the notorious imposter and fraudster and discusses the latest sophisticated white collar crime techniques made easy by today’s technology.
