About the course

Understand the ethical impact of digitisation with this 4 hour course

A mixture of recent real cases and scenario analysis, including previously imposed fines, business limitations, licence revocations and personal punishments will be discussed and assessed. This will enable a better understanding of the evolving intersection between business and customer empowerment, and ever increasing regulatory scrutiny and expectations.

Course Objectives

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the ethical impact of digital developments for the Financial Services Industry
  • Analyse the changing technological landscape across the first line of defence
  • Demonstrate the relationship between values, governance and ethics
  • Delve into the ethical decision-making process and the values led mindset and see how it applies to the corporate cultural framework
  • Look into what frameworks can be been adopted to better understand how the decision-making process works based on both moral and ethical factors


Professional facilitators carry out our training with well-developed group and classroom management skills in a non-critical environment, which encourages individuals to practice skills that are being taught. We do not sit individuals down and talk through a stack of PowerPoint slides; we engage them and discuss core ideas and concepts to bring their ideas and energy out, cementing the regulatory and commercial principles we are promoting in their mind. We do not focus on an unattainable set of KPIs, but rather achievable principles that can be readily utilised, adapted, and developed in an everyday working environment.

Discussion points and simulations, aligned with a structured training plan and real-life scenarios, allow individuals to develop the skills necessary for success. Handbooks will be used, but individuals are encouraged to make use of the sessions to take their own notes, practising the vital audio, visual and kinaesthetic skills which are vital in their role, learning how to process and store information which they will later be required to recall.
