This open lab is designed for practice, dialogue, question and answers, as well as sharing best practices. This week’s Open Lab is co-hosted by our technology trainer, Jane Burk, and Richard (Rich) Reece, a retired Federal Reserve program manager, who will be leading a discussion about passwords and multi-factor authentication (MFA) after last week’s session on the same topic.

With over 20 years of experience designing, developing and implementing digital control systems for various US and international military and commercial aircraft, as well as the International Space Station, Rich took that experience and led large scale computer application and system implementations for IBM and the Federal Reserve. At IBM, Rich led large scale computer application developments for Lockheed Missiles and Space, Ford, Coca Cola and IBM. Also during his time at IBM, he developed various learning/education programs for IBM software and hardware. As a Project and Program Manager at the Federal Reserve, Rich led the implementation of computer systems to support new technology and applications within the Federal Reserve. In retirement he continues to support businesses with computer and software implementations.

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.
