    • Open banking: opening the gates - Framework for an open banking strategy

      Cumps, Bjorn; Muylle, Steve; Standaert, Willem (2019)

Customers must first become aware of the many benefits that open banking has to offer. What is more, the law is limited to current accounts and payments. What is certain, however, is that open banking can drastically reconfigure the landscape of the financial sector. There are already indications that the hitherto relatively closed banks with a dominant market position are beginning to transform into open ecosystem players that embrace digital innovation.
    • Protecting customer privacy in the financial sector

      Isik, Öykü; Dupire, Marion (2016)
      With increased digitization of the financial sector comes the issues of data protection and customer privacy. Banks collect huge amounts of data on individuals, notably from bank accounts, credit card transactions or mobile ranking. On the one hand the use of big data in the financial sector is a wonderful opportunity to better respond to customer needs. The biggest hurdle on the other hand is customer privacy and data protection. How can financial institutions most efficiently deal with customer privacy when making use of digital technologies? How should they deal with the issue of privacy given the current context where rebuilding trust is a key challenge? These are the main questions addressed in this policy paper which consists in two part. The first part is a contribution of Pr. Öykü Isik providing a state-of-the-art of data-driven financial services. The second part is the report of a Vlerick regulatory workshop dedicated to the topic gathering representatives from different horizons within the financial sector including regulatory authorities, banks, insurance companies, financial associations, consulting companies, law firms. The second part of the paper provides a detailed overview of workshop presentations, discussions, and co-creation exercise.
