Regulation, Recruitment, Relationships: building resilience in financial services
- What is the role of financial regulators in protecting the system? Regulatory changes over the last decade have been designed to bolster and stabilise the banking sector – but how are these legislations impacting financial crime?
- How can collaboration between financial institutions, law enforcement agencies and their corporate customers be improved to combat fraud and financial crime? What do new regulations mean for information-sharing between these organisations?
- Have the challenges of compliance to existing complex regulatory requirements – AML and KYC as well as data protection – been met? How?
- What is the national strategy for protecting banks, insurers and other financial services firms from financial crime? How are areas of government working with businesses to ensure that the financial ecosystem has adequate legislative, technical and cultural support? Is it possible to develop one policy framework that can be applied across a range of threat vectors?

Jonathan Luff, co-founder of CyLon, Europe's first dedicated accelerator programme for cyber security startups, continues his conversation with Richard Wilding, director of Futures at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence. He talks about his contribution to The Intelligence Network report and argues that for years the airline industry has used a ‘no-blame’ culture to learn from its mistakes, which has shown that being open with the powers that be, where there are no ramifications for mistakes, is extremely valuable in driving reviews of safety, procedures and risk to ensure the same mistake doesn’t happen again. Is it time to take the same approach to cyber attacks, digital thefts and breaches?
