They will share their insights about technology's potential to transform financial regulation and compliance, what they hope to accomplish, where they have chosen to start, and how they are designing their initiatives. They'll talk about the most promising areas for change, and describe new ways of working with industry and with other countries.

Moderator: Andrew Burt

Session Description: The constantly evolving global economy, rapidly shifting technological and business landscapes, and increased threat of cyber-attacks present challenges to financial institutions that are more complex than ever.  Financial institutions are increasingly relying on third parties to innovate and reduce costs, resulting in new kinds of risk.  Regulators have responded to this trend by emphasizing the need for effective third-party risk management.
