The UK-US Privacy-Enhancing Technologies (PET) Prize Challenges:
"By enabling organisations to share and collaboratively analyse sensitive data in a privacy-preserving manner, PETs open up unprecedented opportunities to harness the power of data through innovative and trustworthy applications. That’s why the UK and U.S. governments are delivering a set of prize challenges - announced at the Summit for Democracy in December 2021 - to unleash the potential of these democracy-affirming technologies." - petsprizechallenges.com
Building on the 'PET Project' research stream, the Royal United Services Institute FFIS research programme is supporting the organisers of the UK-US Privacy Enhancing Technologies Prize Challenges, first announced in the ‘Summit for Democracy’ convened by President Biden in 2021, to explore how the innovation prize can best support financial institutions in achieving impact against real-world financial crime threats through collaboration.
A BRIEFING and dialogue EVENT FOR FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS AND OTHER REGULATED ENTITIES
On August 17th, 2022, (4pm to 5pm British Summer Time / 11am to 12pm Eastern Time U.S.), FFIS will host a virtual briefing and dialogue event for financial institutions, and other regulated entities, covering opportunities to engage in Track 1 (Transforming financial crime prevention) within the UK-US privacy enhancing technologies prize challenges.
With the prize call for technology innovation teams now open, this event is focused on how financial institutions can take part in the initiative throughout 2022 and 2023 in various roles. Participants at this event will be encouraged to share their views on how the innovation in PETs, which will be stimulated through the prize, can best assist industry with understanding the technology and using it to address real-world financial crime threats.
