Date: Wednesday, 12th June, 2024

Timings: 9.00am – 10.45am

Location: PwC Ireland, One Spencer Dock, North Wall Quay, Dublin 1


We are delighted to invite you to our upcoming Cyber roundtable - Complex supply chains & regulatory environments - A focus on Third Party Risk & Privacy Operations Overview.  As supply chains become increasingly complex and sharing of critical and sensitive data with third parties and across borders becomes more prevalent, we explore the importance of robust third party risk management and privacy operations for the insurance sector.

William O'Brien, Director in PwC's Cyber and Privacy team will outline the evolving world of third party risk management, including the key regulatory requirements arising from DORA, NISD and the SEC. He will also share his experience and the technologies and processes you need to protect your business against evolving threats and increasing regulatory requirements. 


Stephen O'Keeffe, Privacy Director in PwC will outline some of the key trends in the Privacy space driven by the increasingly global and outsourced nature of business today. He will also speak about the impacts of emerging technologies, particularly Gen AI and the implications for organisations' Privacy Operations. We will be joined by an Insurance Industry expert.
