Session Details
Digital surveillance: man, machine, market abuse

Presenting Speakers

About the Session

The pandemic had already heightened concerns about market abuse when GameStop ripped open the digital accountability conversation and widened the lens on how firms need to monitor conduct, culture and influencers. Any real notion that working from home meant surveillance could be lighter touch were quickly disabused by regulators and we have also seen hundreds of new AI policy guidelines seeking to control digital behaviour. As the EU, US and UK all revisit market abuse regimes both man and machine are under the microscope – what impact will these obligations have on the lines of defence and how will the technical infrastructure need to adapt?
