Webinar On-Demand Recording


The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) came into force in January 2023, and the financial services businesses affected need to achieve DORA compliance by 17th January 2025.  Compliance with DORA is not optional and failure to adhere to the regulation requirements carries penalties for both financial institutions and third parties. UK businesses will need to act quickly to determine if they fall in scope of DORA, based on the range of types of financial markets activities included and whether those take place within EU jurisdictions.

DORA, and the global policy move toward greater operational resilience in financial services, will ultimately benefit customers by making service dependability a codified obligation. Like any endeavour designed to deliver transformative change at pace and scale, implementing DORA will require consistent focus and engagement, particularly at the Board and executive levels.

This webinar will give you the opportunity to compare your DORA plans with examples of best practice; understand your obligations under the new regulations; and re-evaluate your data security procedures. There will also be an opportunity to put questions to the presenters during the webinar.

Delivered by senior experts, this 60-minute webinar – a follow-up to last September’s (Q3) ITF ‘Security Matters’ Forum: “Decrypting the Digital Operational Resilience Act: Latest insights to what DORA means for your market business” – will provide latest insights to some of the key 'Hows' and 'How-nots' for companies who are looking to learn more about this important compliance landscape.

This is a Free event. To register, simply complete the Registration Form below and confirmation of your registration will be sent to your email address.

For those unable to attend the 'live' webinar - an ‘on-demand’ recording of the session will be made available for viewing from Monday 19th February. To access the recording, simply enter the email address you used to register for the event.
