The Industry

Identity will be the cornerstone of the next generation of the web and new technologies are changing the way identity is understood and managed in both the public and corporate arenas.

The intersection of biometrics, machine learning and blockchain offer a new, flexible identity layer to support homo numericus and all manner of pseudonymous transactions to be found on the next generation of the internet.

Allowing identity and reputation to become interoperable means replacing the fragmentation that exists today with a self-sovereign digital identity.  

This would benefit banks and financial institutions by saving them the time and cost of repeatedly performing know your customer (KYC) checks.  

Streamlining KYC within a business to business context also will deliver vast savings.  More robust identity management technology also arms us in the running battle against the fraud industry that has evolved online.

The Event

Newsweek’s ‘Regtech and Identity’ event will focus on the technologies in turn and examine the business problems they can address, from a regulatory perspective.

Experts in machine learning and artificial intelligence from banks, card providers and fintechs will share what they see as 'state of the art' in identity management and compliance.

See the best examples of biometrics and machine learning as an onboarding tool for banks, leading to an in-depth look at the anti-money laundering landscape in Europe and where technology is playing a key role.

Our examination of automating regulation and compliance will focus on specific use cases in monitoring, reporting and policy modelling. Regtech is well suited to help with the challenges of managing regulatory change, tracking in real-time and providing privacy and data protection. Finally, we will look ahead to how we can streamline regulation in the face of Brexit.  

This is must-attend event for anyone interested in the future of regulation vis-à-vis technology: thought leaders and strategists from banks, card networks, infrastructure providers, business consultancies – and of course regulators themselves. We also have speakers from academia and many talented start-ups.
