DORA Workshop

Tuesday, 24th of May 2022 – 6PM

At:  The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists Hall, 39A Bartholomew Close, London EC1A 7JN

The DORA Best Practice Workshop will look at DORA, which is the new EU legislative proposal aiming to overhaul digital resilience in financial services firms. The proposal will impact the industry widely with a number of new requirements aimed at improving the operational resilience of IT and Digital in the industry.

The regulations impact a number of different stakeholders within third party service providers (TPS’s) and likewise within institutions for example – application operators and designers, infrastructure managers and operators, compliance officers along with the senior management team. So given these different areas –

• What do practitioners in each of these areas feel about the way the new regulations have been communicated to them?

• What do they think best practice is when dealing with these new regulations such as these?

• How do they best demonstrate that they have achieve what is required?

Measures to improve operational resilience have already been put forward by the FCA, but best practices remain to emerge for firms to implement effectively. To solve this issue we are inviting industry professionals to join us in building best practices for the implementation of DORA.


The Dora Best Practice Workshop will kick off with a keynote presentation by the Regulator, before we break into groups to address the topics in functional groups.

We are tackling 3 main topics: Compliance, Infrastructure & Business Applications. Through these topics we can develop practices and strategies to help firms in the space avoid conflict and focus on their core services.

Keynote Speakers

Jack Armstrong, Director of Operational Resilience, EY will present on the regulator’s intent.

Paul Dyer, Chief Risk Officer, Amigo Loans Co.

Brett McGowan, Associate Director, Proviti will focus on implementation and building operational resilience.

Post Event

After the event the group will bring the output together and write a whitepaper, which will be released for free.

We are looking forward to welcoming you!
