FISD takes COVID-19 very seriously. In keeping with New York City’s “Key to NYC Pass”, the venue will require attendees to provide proof of vaccination onsite and request the wearing of masks when seated in the auditorium listening to speakers. As much as possible, we will be spacing seating so that there is more distance between seats. FISD will comply with local and national government rules – and the rules/policies of the venue. We plan to organize the networking element of this event to create an environment that enables a high degree of individual choice, with both indoor and outdoor space.

3:45 p.m. - 4:15 pm. Keynote: Decisions, failures and too much data - a view from the cockpit
Speaker: Omri Shtayer, Chief Executive Officer, Lagoon
Omri is the chief executive officer and co-founder of Lagoon, a no-code data intelligence platform that empowers investors to make better investment decisions by providing access to the relevant data in the blink of an eye. Prior to Lagoon, Omri served as a major in the Israeli Air force, flying F-16Is and in charge of a joint forces air command cell. In that role, he created tools that allowed him to make better strategic decisions in real-time, plan his missions faster, and remove obstacles for mission-critical communications. In this briefing, Omri will compare the data challenges and available tools facing investors with his experiences in the cockpit of an F16.

Speaker: Joel Wolfson, Associate General Counsel, BofA Securities, Inc.
The U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Google v. Oracle case concerns what API computer code can be protected by copyright law. But the decision is about the copyright “fair use” doctrine in a broader context, and so has much to say to those in the financial industry.
