SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 9, 2024 /EINPresswire / -- Alphy, an AI communications company known for its breakthrough real-time compliance technology, Reflect AI, proudly announces the addition of David Lang as an advisor. Lang, the former global chief compliance officer and head of government relations at the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), one of North America's largest banks, brings more than 30 years of unparalleled experience in governance, risk, and financial regulation to the Alphy team. He is currently on the Board of Directors of Cboe Canada, the Toronto-based stock exchange.

Lang's decision to join Alphy was driven by his recognition of the transformative potential of Reflect AI. The proprietary classifier detects and flags unlawful and unethical language in digital communication in real time, delivering a proactive solution to reduce the risk of costly litigation and reputational damage from communication conduct breaches.

Reflect AI is the 'always on' solution to that risk.”

He added,“Compliance monitoring solutions in the financial industry are traditionally backward-looking and constrained by the rigidity of keyword matching. Reflect AI is at the cusp of compliance innovation with proprietary training developed by language specialists significantly reducing false positives and maximizing limited resources.”

Lang noted the broad applicability of Reflect AI for financial services and across sectors - anywhere there is harm in digital communication.“This technology has broad application to use cases across all industries,” Lang said.


Julian Guthrie, CEO of Alphy, highlighted the strategic importance of Lang's addition to the advisory team.“David could teach a master class in risk and surveillance solutions: what works, what doesn't, and how we can deliver a well-priced communication compliance technology that is more comprehensive and accurate in detecting and mitigating breaches than anything on the market today.”

Lang joins a distinguished group of Alphy fintech and compliance advisors, including Philip Brittan, Andy Brown, Neil Chinai, Cris Conde, Jill Denham, Jason Zann, and others.
