We present a research agenda for secure and intelligent regulatory
technology (“regtech”). This encompasses an overview of the concep-
tual, theoretical, and practical challenges that arise when using digital
technologies to comply with regulatory regimes. Intelligent regtech
“solutions” are often tailor-made to achieve better oversight and com-
pliance outcomes. Such tools can make regulation and compliance eas-
ier and more efficient. There use poses security challenges in respect of
data, cyber security, and the consumer. Regtech also raises competition
issues, as well as commercial and operational ones. We explore the
research and policy implications by a targeted review of the literature.
In doing this, we deliver new insights and highlight considerations
for scholars and regulators alike. We articulate the concepts requiring
further investigation. Our contribution is in defining regtech and esta-
blishing an interdisciplinary roadmap for further scholarly study.
