Insurance companies: turning operational resilience into a competitive advantage

InTechForums Boardroom at 34 Lime Street, London EC3M 7AT,

Wednesday 09 October 2024

12:00PM - 14:00PM


Competition in today’s London insurance market is relentless and satisfying customers’ ever-increasing demands is challenging. To effectively compete your digital re-invention must be continuous. Those companies who maintain a status quo, will inevitably be left behind.

With global regulators intensifying their focus on operational risk and resilience, both the EU and UK are gearing up to implement their own acts aimed at enhancing oversight in these areas, set to take effect in Q1 2025. While some may view these regulatory measures as mere distractions with their associated time and cost burdens, it's crucial to recognise the pressing need for improved resilience, particularly in the face of escalating cyber threats, fraud risks, the challenges posed by outdated IT infrastructure and the growing reliance on third party suppliers.

With the help of senior regulatory commentators, market experts and technology leaders, this fast paced 90-minute thought provoking roundtable will provide valuable insights to some of the latest key 'Hows' and 'How-nots' for insurance companies - irrespective of size - to maintain an up-to-date and robust regulatory framework, and sustainable operational resilience.

Who Should Attend

This briefing is designed for senior business, risk and compliance executives, IT, security, data governance professionals, plus underwriters and brokers who work in the Lloyd's and London insurance market, who wish to extend their understanding of this important and changing regulatory landscape.
