Over the course of 2018, shifts in communication technology and the regulatory landscape delivered several significant changes to the financial services industry.

FINRA and the SEC ramped up their focus on high-risk brokers and misleading offerings, and many states and countries strengthened their consumer data protection laws. Meanwhile, compliance and information technology teams continue to grapple with the impact that mobile devices and technologies like Microsoft O365 and Slack are having on their firms.

Join Smarsh subject matter experts Mike Pagani and Robert Cruz as they discuss:

  • FINRA's escalating focus on high-risk brokers and misleading offers
  • The adoption of persistent, mobile-friendly communication technologies
