It’s increasingly important to understand the way disruptive technologies such as blockchain, cryptocurrencies, artificial intelligence, and big data are already impacting and will continue to shape how compliance systems work.
The International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA) is holding a two-day seminar on this topic for professionals and others from September 20 to 21 at our Laxenburg/Vienna campus.
Some of the topics to be covered include regtech and the disruption of anti-corruption compliance, human factors in ethics and compliance, and the future of anti-corruption compliance in disruptive markets.
By staying a step ahead of upcoming technologies, companies can begin analyzing and preparing appropriately in order to adapt their anti-corruption compliance systems before they will be affected.
The program features expert lecturers, including:
- Katarzyna Maria Ciupa (Business Analyst and Project Manager, IoT Austria Mentor, Head of “Bit’n’Block Academy”)
- Peter Ebenhoch (Partner and Senior Consultant, Effectas GmbH)
- Alexander Petsche (Partner, Baker McKenzie)
- Han-Kyun Rho (Professor for Collective Action, Compliance and (private sector) Anti-Corruption, IACA), and
- Pawan Kumar Sinha (Academic Programs Director, IACA).

One challenge that a Compliance Program can face when implementing a regtech or continuous monitoring infrastructure is to build the right connections with internal functional partners, such as Finance. Application of automated "scan and report" tools which review invoices for suspicious patterns implies a certain level of sophistication both by Finance and by Compliance, not to mention budgetary support to lease and operate these "add-on" capabilities. That said, clearly this type of tool is a very savvy use case for scaling up this monitoring w/o scaling up the headcount.
