Deloitte Technology Fast 50


Many people have learned to use new services. This is good news for tech companies, says Libor Čížek from Citi Commercial Bank

Thanks to automated solutions, the usual banker skills from the past years are no longer enough. Communication with clients is more technical and project-managed by various implementation teams focusing on the development of services for digital economy companies, from e-commerce to software to fintech. “Cooperation therefore requires involvement of IT people on both sides,” says Libor Čížek from Citi Commercial Bank, where he leads a section focused on services for digital companies. He adds that “as for other trends, it is mainly about shifting the bank’s corporate customer experience closer to the retail banking customer’s experience, despite the higher complexity of services in the corporate world.” Another key aspect is the digitisation process, which has been accelerated by the ongoing pandemic.

Greycortex is like a doctor, preventing clients from catching a cyber-disease

What a person encrypts, a person can also decrypt. This was true a couple of years ago. Nowadays, cyber-criminals use advanced technologies and their attacks are much more sophisticated and targeted, and consequences are much worse. “Not only the good guys (i.e. cyber protection companies) but also the bad guys are evolving. Attacks are aimed at weak points and human errors,“ says Petr Chaloupka, CEO of Greycortex, a company that focuses on IT and industrial network security. The story of this company that succeeded among the fastest growing tech companies began long before its foundation. It is a story about passion, vision, skills and a ton of humour. And, in a way, it is connected to the beginning of computerisation in Czechoslovakia.
