We are delighted to partner with Grant Thornton who are kindly hosting an in person workshop on the 4th of March from 11am to 12.30pm. Navigating DORA: Analysis on the ESA's latest developments and becoming DORA Ready'.

There has been developing focus on digital resilience – this has especially accelerated since the COVID 19 pandemic. As a result, many insurance and financial organizations are facing an array of emerging regulation from both the Central Bank of Ireland and the European Commission.

The European Commission have established regulation and technical guidance to help supervisors to be able to expand their focus from ensuring firms remain resilient to also making sure they’re able to maintain resilient operations through a severe operational disruption.

DORA delves into Information Communication Technology (ICT) requirements going a step further with third parties, testing, incident management, reporting and more.

This session aims to be interactive with polling questions throughout so you can share your challenges and thoughts. It will aim to provide a tactical approach for ‘DORA Readiness’ by outlining the key steps involved to achieving compliance. 

Hear from Grant Thornton experts on what this means for insurers as well delving into the most recent developments in the regulatory landscape.
