In conjunction with ISITC – Europe C.I.C., we explore the implications of the Digital Operational Resilience Act on Financial Services and beyond.

On 24 September 2020, the European Commission published its draft Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA). The DORA aims to establish a much clearer foundation for EU financial regulators and supervisors to be able to expand their focus from ensuring firms remain financially resilient to also making sure they are able to maintain resilient operations through a severe operational disruption. This will therefore impact not only Financial Services but also their service providers.

Just prior to lockdown the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Prudential Regulatory Authority (PRA) published Consultation Papers21 proposing measures to improve resilience of the UK’s financial sector. Similar yet slightly different to DORA, the UK’s authorities aim to bolster operational resilience and the ability of firms and the financial sector more generally to prevent, adapt, respond to, recover and learn from operational disruptions. So, what are the implications of this new regulation on the Financial Services industry and its Service Providers?

We have brought together an expert panel to help us begin to understand the changes facing our organisations as new regulations in Europe, in the UK and globally are rolled out.

5.30pm for 6.00pm start – join us and our expert panel as we explore the impact of the DORA and for a drinks and nibbles reception following our debate, where you can quiz our speakers further.
