Today, technology is intertwined with personal finance – everything from how you bank, pay for things, manage money, get a loan, or invest money. Although this is not new, the pandemic has expedited the use of technology in our daily routines of managing our personal finances. Online banking, online shopping, and other online transactions grew during the last 20 months. The use of technology will persist beyond the pandemic.

What are the basics of technology used in personal finance? In this speaker series, we are inviting guest speakers from the banking and/or technology industry to provide a behind-the-scenes look at the technology and processes involved with online banking and payments. It intends to open the eyes of the curious minds, and connect common technology terms to our day-to-day activities, such as managing passwords, multi-factor authentication, encryption, and more.

Please note the speakers will share their perspectives that are of their own, which do not represent the organization they work for.

We are striving to improve your experience on our site and would appreciate your feedback.
