The compliance stream at Sibos 2017

Sibos is the premier annual event for the financial services community, organised by SWIFT.

The compliance stream will look at developments in financial crime compliance and how banks are responding. Can RegTech transform AML in the same way that FinTech has reshaped payments and investment management? Could automation, AI and outsourcing provide cost relief in sanctions compliance? And in an industry where safeguards at one institution can be undermined by weak security at another, is it time to include cyber exposure as a core element of risk controls?

Take part in interactive panel debates with leading industry figures, where you can share ideas and help to create solutions that address financial crime and changing regulation.
