Fraud post COVID-19 - A Government view
09:30 AM - 10:00 AM

COVID-19 has caused an acceleration in the use of digital technologies across all sectors and areas of the economy. In financial services, contactless payments, digital wallets and online banking have enabled people to conduct transactions and bank safely and securely in lockdown.

The pandemic, however, has also exacerbated fraud and security concerns. The rise of digital technologies and the mass uptake in remote working has created a new challenge for businesses in particular, who need to detect fraud early, and guard against potential cybersecurity threats to protect their customers. With speaker: Mark Cheeseman, Deputy Director, Public Sector Fraud, Cabinet Office

The Compliance Shield: A Digital Solution
10:45 AM - 11:15 AM

The ever-increasing burden on compliance teams to satisfy regulatory and legislative requirements, made particularly challenging following Brexit and the Covid-19 maelstrom, can be delivered by a more widespread adoption of technology to deliver daily activities.

RegTech “shields” can and do integrate with existing processes and materially improve time and cost efficiencies, security and compliance quality. They can also transform processes such that compliance becomes a critical component of a sale, and a customer’s first impression of an organisation. The adoption of RegTech as part of the onboarding process can even become a point of differentiation and a competitive advantage.

The Sanctioned Strike Back: Presentation on the development of new sanctions regimes, and the development of countermeasures
12:30 PM - 13:15 PM

This session aims to assess how effective Western sanctions on Russia and other regimes have been in macroeconomic terms, and what could be done to render them more effective. The financial sanctions had the greatest impact on GDP, by restricting access to foreign capital, including credits to both the government and the private sector, as well as foreign direct investment (FDI).

Assessing the RegTech Impact: Discussion of how regtech has so far impacted on the development of anti-financial crime, and whether it has improved efficiency or effectiveness more.
14:15 PM - 14:45 PM

Financial Institutions are being asked to demonstrate true end to end control over their regulatory change management. Regulatory changes on multiple fronts are requiring upgrades to the way projects are done, policies are maintained, reports produced, data quality is checked, agreements are signed and suppliers are contracted.

What have leading RegTech implementations shown about what does it takes to put ‘end to end’ solutions in place and what have the benefits been?

Knowledge is Power: The development of KYC utilities and data sharing prospects, and their role in improving private sector insight against money laundering financial crime risks.
17:00 PM - 17:30 PM

To address increased regulatory pressure and recent money-laundering scandals, the private sector could benefit from a fundamentally different way of managing know-your-customer-anti–money laundering (KYC–AML) compliance. A shared utility for this purpose can reduce risk by improving both the effectiveness of KYC–AML processes and operational efficiency.
