End-to-End Encryption is a term often referenced in the tools we use, for example, Zoom or your online banking. What is encryption, how does it work, where it is used, and why? This session explores encryption technology widely used by the financial services industry.

Please join us to hear Mark Zigler speak as he brings more than 20 years of experience delivering technology solutions in the retail, supply chain, healthcare, banking, and financial industries. If you shopped at a Longs Drugs Store between 2000 and 2009, Mark and his teams were the ones behind the technology that had the shelves stocked, sale prices set, and prescription medication ready for your pickup. Mark has also delivered prescription processing and payment systems at Kaiser Permanente, inventory and distribution systems at Restoration Hardware, and data capture and bank reserve balance applications at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Mark currently delivers financial management and investment solutions at AssetMark. Mark was born and raised in Northeast Ohio which he still considers home (but does NOT miss the weather), and spends his free time volunteering in the fight against cancer, playing the trumpet, and trying not to injure himself while playing sports.

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.

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