The Data Coalition Board of Directors regretfully announces that the in-person RegTech Data Summit 2020 scheduled for April 22 in New York will be canceled and rescheduled as a virtual event. Given the evolving situation surrounding the novel coronavirus, minimizing potential health risks to members, participants, and attendees is a top priority for the organization to successfully advocate for responsible data policies in the country.
The Data Coalition event, presented by title sponsor Donnelley Financial Solutions (DFIN), is being re-launched today as the RegTech Data Summit week, a virtual series of events from April 20-22. The new virtual event will offer expanded programming and content that focuses on the future of RegTech applications in society, specifically strategies for realizing efficiencies for financial services and government agencies.
“Because of the increasingly critical role of RegTech in our society, the Data Coalition prioritizes advancing the dialogue to develop policy options for reducing regulatory reporting costs while improving the quality of information for decision-making,” said Nick Hart, CEO of the Data Coalition in a recent statement. “Through the 3-day long virtual series, the Data Coalition intends to advance meaningful opportunities for implementing RegTech solutions, to highlight emerging Regtech leaders, and to showcase our members’ Regtech solutions.”
During the virtual RegTech Data Week, participants will discuss the benefits and uses of common entity identifiers, development of new pilot projects to advance the use of structured data in regulatory reporting, and other key considerations for adopting RegTech solutions in 2020 and beyond. Additional details about the program structure and logistics for the event will be made available here in the coming days.
Data Coalition members and participants should contact the Data Coalition staff with further questions about the event.
