Rolling with Regulation

For compliance professionals, ensuring that their organizations fulfil regulatory requirements is a fulltime job (and a demanding one at that). What is already a complex job function is further compounded by regulatory uncertainty – the swift and sweeping regulatory changes which often necessitate hasty and adaptive changes to an organization’s compliance programs.

In that context, Rolling with Regulation: Leveraging Data to Navigate Regulatory Uncertainty, a webinar hosted by Finextra, in association with Trulioo, lets compliance professionals prepare for change and set themselves up for continued success. The webinar will host distinguished industry experts who will be addressing some of the most important themes that are at the center of the compliance function.

Here is a summary of what the webinar will cover:

A new regulatory update is issued every seven minutes; fines amounting to more than $243 billion have been levied on financial institutions since the 2008 financial crisis; it’s all these factors and more that keep compliance professionals up at night. In this climate of rapid regulatory change, compliance professionals have been left with too many unanswered questions: How will sweeping regulatory changes impact existing processes? How to remain compliant when your organization is subject to both local and foreign regulations? What to do when such regulations are not only mutually exclusive, but also irreconcilably different?

With upcoming updates to AMLD, and sweeping changes wrought by PSD2 and GDPR, firms are in an even more precarious situation as they find themselves exposed to liabilities, and subject to massive fines. At the same time, technology has been making quantum leaps, and the availability of the internet in even the most remote parts of the world, has lowered the cost of customer acquisition. Customers increasingly rely on mobile devices to transact online. Indeed, never has it been easier to build a global base of customers in this online, borderless economy.

Join the webinar to hear experts discuss:

  • How to navigate the uncertainty of rolling regulatory updates in a fast-changing world?
  • How best to know who you are dealing with in multiple markets?
  • How can technology be deployed to assist with vast amounts of data?
  • What further value can be derived from new data?
