Andres Wolberg-Stok, global head of emerging platforms and services for consumer banking at Citigroup, will present on mobile device security at Bank Innovation Israel in Tel Aviv this November. Andres joined Citi in 2000 and leads the team responsible for innovation in digital platforms and advanced customer features. He played a major role in the development of many of Citi's mobile advances, including the first Apple Watch app by a major bank; the ability to view balances without logging in, another first among U.S. banks; and Citi's award-winning tablet banking apps and global mobile banking app. Andres_citiWolberg-Stok began his career as a journalist before launching a personal finance startup in 1997, from which he joined Citigroup. Banking is a breeze compared to his career as an international correspondent, he says. As a journalist, he had tea with mass-murderer military dictators; was driven, blindfolded and at gunpoint, around Asuncion, Paraguay after midnight; and raced in a car at 120 mph along the edge of a minefield in Croatia. So how hard can managing innovation at a global bank be? As part of the Bank Innovation Israel speaker faculty, Wolberg-Stok will present on the security imperative, with a particular emphasis on securing the mobile device, on Nov. 11 in Tel Aviv.
