Tackling the FinTech Regulatory Landscape: Addressing Challenges in Privacy, Compliance and Cybersecurity (Sponsored by PKWARE)

Fintech has disrupted the financial sector dramatically over the past few years. With new, fast services, increased connectivity it has enabled the industry to be quicker and more agile. However, given the rapid acceleration of the industry the global regulatory framework has increased in complexity that poses a challenge to organisations trying to keep up. In addition, the rapid growth in FinTech has also benefited hackers, so it is vital for fintech organisations to secure their software in case of an attack.

This session will host a panel of experts looking at the current complexity of the regulatory landscape. Panelists will offer their advice and guidance to the audience.
