This working group focuses on the current day and emerging regulatory demands and impacts to compliance programs with Blockchain technology and the financial and payments sectors. This working group encourages Blockchain companies, government regulators, law enforcement, and professionals in the financial regulatory and financial crimes space to join and contribute.

A key focus of this working group beyond the impacts of Blockchain to financial regulatory and financial crimes impacts is the synthesis of key issues in those spaces from licensing requirements, anti-money laundering laws, sanctions, fraud, anti-bribery and corruption, and data privacy and cyber security as they relate to financial crimes (among others). These issues do not exist in isolation and must be seen in an integrated fashion. These issues transcend jurisdictional boundaries, and so this working group will take a global view of these issues as well as participation by members.
