Season 2, Episode 4: How do you regulate in such a fast changing environment? 

In this episode we’ve included discussion during the panel on regulating in such a fast changing environment, and the idea of regulating for outcomes.


Panelists highlighted a number of perverse outcomes that they’ve seen where, for example, inferior technology solutions needed to be advanced in order to met the regulatory requirements.


This is another area where innovation on the regulatory front is required.


You’ll hear a number of voices from those in the room and our panelists: Andy Prow, co-founder of Kiwi cybersecurity firm RedShield, Joshua Meltzer and Stephanie Honey who has featured in our earlier episodes.

The idea of regulatory experimentation and regulatory sandboxes is discussed to encourage regulatory innovation. This is the kind of conversation we need to be encouraging.


In the next episode we cover: What are some next steps on digital trade?
