Chris Ruscitti and Blaine Carnprobst
Advanced Artificial Intelligence for Accounts Receivable

As companies continue to experience increases in electronic payments, it’s becoming more common for remitters to exclude remittance and deduction detail. New technology, including artificial intelligence, can connect the remittance detail with the associated payments, while also further interrogating the details to improve automated accounts receivable (A/R) posting “hit rates.” In this session, we’ll discuss challenges faced by A/R groups as the payment landscape changes and present strategies for improving the A/R posting hit rate.

Download Presentation [PDF]
This session presents current events in the capital markets, how we got here from March 2020, how to prepare for what may come, and how it compares to 2008-10. We will offer a COVID Carve-Out "how-to" and discuss what's available now (investment-grade and non-investment-grade) that would not have been a year ago, and how the capital and credit markets are likely to function for companies. This will be timely market information and also help professionals who did not experience the events of 2008-10 as finance and treasury professionals.

Cybersecurity during a pandemic.. what keeps us up at night

Download Presentation [PDF]
As we all adapt to our ‘new normal’ at work and at home, one thing hasn’t gone away – threat actors are still trying to take advantage of any weakness to gain access to information. Two hours. That’s all it takes for a hacker to get to the data they need once they gain entry to an organization’s computer systems. Most companies are not prepared to address a breach that quickly. In fact, many don’t even realize they’ve been breached until it’s too late to recover lost funds or data without repercussions. With technology platforms constantly evolving, new vulnerabilities that require vigilance to implement and cyberattacks becoming more sophisticated, education about prevention is essential. In this session, you’ll hear case studies from an expert in investigating computer intrusions at Binary Defense who will share lessons learned from attacks against computer systems and the subsequent measures that have been adopted for protection. Session attendees will learn best practices that they can apply to protect their own organizations in the hacking age.
