A sneak peek into the educational sessions offered at the ComplyConnect compliance conference

Check out a few of the educational sessions that make the ComplyConnect Conference & Expo worth attending.

  1. Cryptocurrencies and Digital Assets

While many investors use cryptocurrencies and digital assets to serve their clients, there are many bad actors who are using cryptocurrencies and digital assets to scam and swindle. Technological advancements, such as cryptocurrencies and digital assets, present threats to the market because they are difficult to trace and can actually help perpetrators hide their identities. In a recent report, the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) said “State securities regulators have been, are and will continue to work to protect investors from threats derived from the past, the present and the future. Simply put, our mission is an important today as it was more than a century ago and will be a century from now.”

At the ComplyConnect Conference & Expo, you’ll learn about these tricky-to-trace assets and how your firm can solidify its tactical compliance strategies to protect yourself and your clients.

2. Regulatory Examinations

Fact: regulators are increasing their exam pace and the depth of their exams. Is your firm prepared? These exams evaluate the ability and preparedness of your firm’s key personnel, processes and records to determine if your firm’s commitment to compliance meet regulatory expectations. Learn what regulators are looking for and what your firm can do to protect itself against violations.

3. Living with the New Investment Advisor (IA) Marketing Rule

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) new marketing rule for investment advisors (IA) goes into effect on Nov. 4. The regulator emphasizes that all advertisements circulated on or after the compliance date are subject to the new marketing rule.

In the world of compliance, we have to adapt quickly to rule changes, and we know that can be challenging to juggle among your many other responsibilities. Learn the ins and outs of the new IA marketing rule and how your compliance program can adapt to these changes.

4. The SEC’s Proposed Cybersecurity Rule

Cybersecurity is an ever-increasing area of risk for firms. The SEC recognizes this and has proposed amendments to the cybersecurity rule that would increase the disclosure requirements for investors. The proposed amendments are intended to better inform investors about a registrant’s risk management, strategy and governance and to provide timely notification to investors of material cybersecurity incidents. What could your firm look like if this rule is passed? Attend the ComplyConnect Conference & Expo and find out!

5. Reg Best Interest

It’s no secret that the SEC takes protecting the market seriously. Their extensive rules reflect that. In addition to the other rules the regulator has established, conference attendees will learn more about the Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI) rule. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to hear from industry experts, glean key takeaways from stories about what has worked at other firms and apply best practices in Reg BI.
