Risky Business: Financial Compliance and Covid-19

The covid-19 pandemic has kept workers confined to their homes for months on end, significantly increasing the role of digital tools in keeping a firm connected. In heavily regulated sectors like finance, the sheer volume of communications that is now generated over digital channels is raising crucial questions about whether, how and to what extent organizations should exercise oversight of employee communications.

This report explores shifting attitudes towards internal communication oversight in remote working environments, based on findings from a survey of 503 executives in the financial services industry in North America, Europe and Asia.

The survey was conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit and supported by Behavox.
