In collaboration with our Supporting Sponsor Mazars we host an afternoon on Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA)

The ever-increasing dependency of the financial sector on software and digital processes means that information communication technologies (ICT) risks are inherent  on the level of an entity, the financial sector and the broader economy. Actions have been on member state level, which has limited effect given cross-border nature of ICT risks, and has resulted in overlaps and duplicative requirements for especially cross-border financial entities and cross border IT service providers. 

The European Commission has adopted a detailed and comprehensive regulatory framework on digital operational resilience for EU financial entities and their key ICT third-party service providers. Key goals of this legislation is to reduce the (systemic) risks of digitalization within the financial sector and improve the regulatory instruments. The final text was published in the Official Journal on the 27th of December 2022 and shall apply form the 17th of January 2025. It can be expected that compliance with DORA will become more and more a license to operate in the financial sector for financial institutes and their IT service providers.

In this session we will discuss the new DORA legislation and, if available, the technical standards adopted by the ESAs. Furthermore we will give you an indication of the implementation impact of DORA, a possible timeframe for implementation and further guidance on the needed ICT controls like ICT-risk management, ICT-incidents, ICT third party management, IT continuity and threat led security testing.

Members of supervisory boards, directors and board members, (internal) auditors, CIOs and CISOs and other officials involved in information security and cybersecurity.
