There’s no question that fintech will disrupt treasury and finance, right? According to Eric Rosenbach, there are three significant challenges that need to be overcome before mass adoption does occur. A former Pentagon Chief of Staff and Assistant Secretary of Defense, for six years Rosenbach led the Department of Defense on cyber issues, including during high-profile attacks on the United States by Iran and North Korea. He’s also a former Army intelligence officer and commander of a telecommunications intelligence unit, serving in Bosnia and Kosovo.
Rosenbach will be the keynote speaker at Breakthrough Treasury and Finance this May in Nashville. Learn more at AFPonline.org/Breakthrough.
