Issue #216 of the Fintech Analyst report focuses on ransomware defences and why preparation is the only answer, how South Korea is going cashless again, the need for core banking upgrades in APAC, and what financial institutions need from the cloud. We also examine the impact of COVID-19 on Canadian payments and why predictive tools are key to loan services’ growth.
