In the latest weekly update, Ari Redbord, head of legal and government affairs at TRM Labs, joins ISMG editors to discuss important cybersecurity issues, including numerous efforts to establish new regulatory controls for the industry – and whether they go far enough to deter terrorism, money laundering and other illegal activities.
Redbord joins ISMG panelists Anna Delaney, director, productions; Tom Field, senior vice president, editorial; and Rashmi Ramesh, senior subeditor, global news desk, to discuss:
- How terrorists are testing the waters with non-fungible tokens as a potential way to fund their campaigns;
- The limitations of the two much-anticipated digital assets regulations – MiCA in Europe and the Responsible Financial Innovation Act in the United States;
- The impact of new U.K. rules stating that crypto exchanges must now report suspected sanctions breaches to authorities.
