Tech in payments – Can Tech Innovation Save us from Regulation?

  • Payment service providers and other financial services institutions are coming under increasing regulatory obligations such as in respect of KYC / AML, fraud prevention and customer authentication
  • Although users of financial services recognise the need for security, the extent of the requirements threaten to make user experience in financial services clunky and unworkable
  • In this session, we will look at the principal regulatory obligations, what those mean for tech implementations, and the friction between security and usability
  • We will also have demos from two fintech companies showing how technology can and is being used to help achieve a balance between the two.
