Benefits & Challenges of Using RegTech in the Digital Age

Presented by Protiviti and RegPac Revolution

To date, financial institutions have paid $320 billion in regulatory fines. With change as the only constant, global regulations are continually shifting and the digital revolution can either be a threat or a survival strategy for companies. The question is, who will survive it? For instance, companies that will succeed are those that comply with the increasingly complex regulations. 

According to a recent study from Ponemon and Globalcape report, non-compliance costs are 2.71 times more than the cost of maintaining or meeting compliance requirements. Specifically, when organisations fail to meet compliance regulations, they will have to bear costs such as tosses, fines, penalties and business disruption. RegTech solutions provide a more efficient way for organisations to control the cost and complexity of regulatory work, allowing them to stay ahead and gain a competitive advantage. 

We have an exciting line-up with pitches from prominent startups and a fireside chat to follow. Join our event to expand your knowledge in the RegTech ecosystem and learn more about RegTech application. Get insights on the benefits and challenges organisations face in the digital age!
