Compliance by design is a whole lot easier than playing catch-up

RegTech as a sector is designed to automate and streamline compliance and deliver on the goals of the community. So, what is its role in the Consumer Data Right (CDR) to be introduced July, 2020? How can RegTech help Australians get more value from the data held about them, in a way that keeps their data and identities safe?

The CDR will give consumers greater access to and control over their data. It will improve consumers’ ability to compare and switch between products and services, and will encourage competition between service providers, leading not only to better prices for customers but also more innovative products and services.

Join our esteemed panel as they talk through the below, focussing on the impacts on competition and consumer experience:

  • The CDR policy goals
  • The practical dilemmas of consumers consenting to share data
  • Use cases, consent and the new normal.

The Consumer Data Right needs RegTech to help all participants in the ecosystem. Whether you are a data holder, a data recipient, an intermediary or a regulator, you will want to exploring now how to automated your compliance with your obligations.
