Next meeting: September 21

Our next roundtable topic will be a discussion with CAMS Research Affiliate Angelica Marotta on the topic of The Convergence and Divergence of Regulatory Compliance and Cybersecurity. To better understand the commonalities and variations of different compliance environments, the CAMS team performed a comparative analysis drawing on eight interview-based case studies. This study examined the conditions under which compliance presents issues impacting cybersecurity and which areas are affected, in both positive and negative ways. The comparison features the cultural, regulatory, financial, and technical factors contributing to compliance problems.
