Bitcoin: The Path to Regulation

Bitcoin: The Path to Regulation

In March 2017, Bitcoin, the controversial yet potentially revolutionary cryptocurrency that was created in 2009, hit a record high value of $1,290 compared to a low of $200 in 2015. The growth of Bitcoin and its ever-increasing popularity has led to a recent focus on the regulation of cryptocurrencies (also known as virtual currencies); in particular, the inclusion of Virtual Currency Exchange Platforms (VCEPs) and Custodial Wallet Providers (CWPs) in the Fifth EU Money Laundering Directive (5AMLD).

Empowering Second Line Functions to Enable Innovation: Digitalisation and the Second Line of Defence

In response to the growing cyberthreat, rapid technological change and opportunities for digital innovation, second line functions are beginning to recognise that their mindset needs to change. Technological advancement is an unstoppable force. Customers will demand innovation. It is therefore essential that risk, compliance and security teams are not viewed as too risk averse and rather become enablers of innovation. There is always a balance between risk and reward. Risk and compliance teams have a critical role to play in ensuring the organisation gets this balance right. For many, the medium-term risk of not innovating may be more significant than the shorter-term pain associated with adverse events arising from the risks that the business is controlling tightly. This paper highlights some steps that leaders in second line functions need to take to ensure that they are fulfilling their role while nurturing an innovation culture and enabling digital transformation to flourish within the business.
