Webinar: Cloud-based compliance platforms that enhance confidence and reduce cost

Please join panelists from Resolver, Central 1, PRA Group and The Canadian Compliance Group to explore the many practical considerations and benefits of deploying cloud-based compliance systems and content  to address the regulatory compliance challenges of Canadian credit unions. 

The panel discussion will begin by exploring the process for getting started, including:

  • Defining your key regulatory compliance challenges and desired future state
  • Engaging key stakeholders in design and review processes
  • Determining in-scope lines of business and related regulatory considerations
  • Setting the stage for a successful launch of your regulatory compliance platform – and continuous improvement

We’ll then take a hands-on look at a regulatory compliance platform, exploring many of the key features, considerations and benefits derived, including:

  • Enhanced focus upon areas of highest risk
  • Workflow-driven automation that ensures compliance activities are completed – consistently and on-time
  • Greater confidence in legislative / regulatory compliance, achieved with improved efficiency and reduced cost
  • Pre-populated regulatory content for BC and Ontario credit unions – intuitively organized, always up-to-date
  • Real-time monitoring that provides a comprehensive, at-a-glance view of your compliance posture
  • Improved efficiency and positive recognition when working with regulatory agencies
