Financial services companies are preparing for a time when a powerful quantum computer could break some of the most widespread cryptographic methods currently used in cybersecurity.

Top ad accounts in review from T-Mobile to JPMorgan Chase

  • Much of the ad industry came to a halt in March as the pandemic led marketers to slash spending and delay reviews of their accounts.
  • But activity has since picked up, with a focus on media-buying, which is where the most money changes hands.
  • The key reviews ad agencies are watching include names like T-Mobile, Sanofi, and Visa that spend billions on advertising and want to consolidate their business with a single agency or holding company.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

When the pandemic hit the US in March, advertising all but came to a halt as brands slashed spending and halted new campaign production.

The last thing any CMO wanted to do was go embark on an agency review, an expensive, monthslong process to determine the advertising agencies they want to handle their business. 

But with some exceptions like Samsung, which just cancelled a massive pitch for

JPMorgan says a Biden victory could mark a stock market shift

A victory of Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the presidential election could herald the start of a rotation toward parts of the equity market that have been left behind by the rally, according to strategists at JPMorgan Chase & Co.

“We need to get through US elections event-risk first, but there could be a broadening in styles and in regional performances thereafter,” said JPMorgan strategists led by Mislav Matejka in a note on Monday. “A potential Biden victory should not be seen as a negative for markets, and could in fact lead to an internal rotation.”

The analysts, who have for months preferred growth, defensives, and US stocks, say that they’re “warming” to a possible switch of market leadership after the vote, with Biden holding a comfortable lead in national polls over President Trump a month before Election Day. They point out that value, or cheaper equities, have “dramatically” underperformed

JPMorgan Chase Rolls Out New Digital Hub, Tools to Protect Businesses Against Fraud

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Access to reliable online security has never been more critical for businesses today. In fact, 81% of business owners experienced payments fraud last year, according to a recent survey by J.P. Morgan and the Association for Financial Professionals (AFP®). To help businesses protect against potential threats, JPMorgan Chase today introduced Fraud Protection Services, a new digital hub with enhanced fraud prevention tools that helps small and mid-sized clients protect their businesses and manage money safely.

The new offering is available online to the bank’s millions of small to mid-sized business clients. Businesses can easily enroll and access Chase’s suite of fraud tools through a dashboard that helps clients take full advantage of security features, including enhanced check monitoring and protection, while helping them better manage their cash.

“We want business owners to know we have their back,” says Jennifer Roberts, CEO of Chase Business Banking.

JPMorgan Pushes Payment Fraud Protection for Small Business Customers | Investing News

NEW YORK (Reuters) – JPMorgan Chase & Co.

, the country’s largest lender, is stepping up payment fraud protections for its small and mid-sized business customers, which continue to be targeted by scammers – particularly amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Four-in-five small and mid-sized companies say they were targets of payment fraud last year, but that could be reduced if businesses use more tools to detect suspicious payments early, JPMorgan executives told Reuters.

The bank’s new self-service “fraud hub,” being introduced on Monday, will allow them to set alerts for unusually large payments and control who gets paid. The service supplements the current system in which customers call the bank to set controls.

“Fraud is a major concern and can be devastating for businesses,” said Jennifer Roberts, chief executive of Chase Business Banking. “We want to provide them with safeguards that are easy to set up and customize for their transactions.”

The Week JPMorgan Told Employees To Return To Work, A Trader Tested Positive For Covid-19

Top-tier investment bank JPMorgan, led by well-respected CEO Jamie Dimon, required its traders, bankers, brokers and research analysts to return to its offices by Sept. 21, after being allowed to work from home for the last six months.  

The bank claims that it’s essential to have people return to its offices. Wall Street runs on access to information and intelligence. Working closely together builds a network that affords the opportunity to share ideas and strategies in real time. Traders, bankers, brokers, compliance, human resources and other personnel rely upon daily discussions and interactions to conduct their jobs. Young employees need mentors, guidance and direction. The synergy, according to JPMorgan, is diminished when its people are disconnected from one another.  

The same week the return-to-work command was made, JPMorgan sent home some of its traders after an employee in the equities trading trading division contracted Covid-19. In response to the
