The silver lining of the 2008 crushing financial collapse was the rise of regulatory technology, or commonly known as RegTech. Within the financial industry, the management of regulatory processes is through technology which is RegTech. The main functions of RegTech are reporting regulatory monitoring and compliance.
A group of companies in the RegTech industry use cloud computing technology via SaaS, i.e., software-as-a-service, to help companies or businesses comply with regulations less expensively and efficiently.
