DORA – Delivering operational resilience in practice


Strategy workshop

Operational resilience in the spotlight…

The new Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) is intended to substantially strengthen levels of operational resilience across the financial sector, standardising requirements for a wide range of ‘financial entities’ within its scope.

DORA will also fundamentally change the scope of the supervisory perimeter in Europe by bringing within the scope of EU-level oversight critical third-party providers (CTPPs) of information and communication technology (ICT) services, including the so-called BigTechs.

However, the success of the regime will depend on the industry’s capacity to implement regulatory and supervisory expectations.

… understand the DORA framework and stay ahead of the curve!

Learn about the key pillars of DORA and navigate with confidence the requirements for financial entities and CTPPs, including BigTechs. Learn too about the ground-breaking new EU-level oversight structure for CTPPs, including the approaches to identifying CTPPs and the arrangements for oversight by the European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs), including the new decision-making structures.

This strategy workshop is conceived and taught by leading academics, policy makers and practitioners in this field. Get their first-hand insights and embed your knowledge through breakout sessions designed to highlight the key requirements for financial entities and CTPPs.
