Despite huge market volatility, economic disruptions, and inflation at decadal highs, the payments industry and cryptocurrency and virtual asset markets continue to grow exponentially. At the same time, there is unprecedented regulatory scrutiny globally, and even sharper sanctions risks.
The regulatory landscape is evolving and placing a heavy burden on compliance teams to navigate. However, technology is stepping up to the plate with innovations that can help market participants to navigate changing threats and meet compliance obligations quickly and efficiently.
