Exploring emerging tech and regulatory challenges in fintech and cybersecurity

This event has now ended.

Digital innovation drives significant benefits for consumers, businesses, and the wider economy. The Digital Regulation Cooperation Forum (DRCF) is a forum of four UK regulators – the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and Ofcom – and was set up to ensure greater cooperation on digital regulatory matters.

We want to keep pace with the rapid changes in digital innovation and are hosting a roundtable with representatives from the DRCF to discuss the technologies, products, and solutions that entrepreneurs and innovators are developing in fintech and cybersecurity in Manchester, and to explore the challenges faced by innovators and entrepreneurs. 

 This is an invitee-only roundtable and we will ensure the views expressed by our attendees are treated with confidence. We will not be recording this session and would like to encourage an open and frank discussion with attendees. 


  • Welcome and introduction from Gill Whitehead, DRCF CEO
  • Roundtable discussions on emerging technologies being developed in Manchester
  • Networking sandwich lunch for all attendees (please notify us in advance of any allergies or dietary requirements) 
  • Discussion focusing on the challenges faced by SMEs and start-ups and how DRCF can best engage with industry going forward

 Reasons to attend

  • Ability to network with other tech businesses in Manchester, as well as local academics with a tech-focus
  • Unique opportunity to raise views with regulators focusing on digital about the challenges your business faces
  • Shape the view of the DRCF on how best to support and engage with industry
