DORA Workshop

Tuesday, 24th of May 2022  @ 6PM (followed by a drinks and nibbles)  

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

With 2022 being the year of DORA and UK legislation implementation, we invite you to join this best practice workshop  as we meet to hear from subject matter experts, exchange views and help to develop best practice around the needs and roles of all stakeholders impacted.

The regulations will impact a number of different stakeholders within institutions for example – board members, senior operations managers, compliance officers, application operators and designers and infrastructure managers and operators. Together with third party service providers.

This Best Practice Workshop provides an independent industry forum where practitioners from across the industry can work together to respond to and address these questions.


The keynote speakers will provide their perspective on the regulation, in building Operational Resilience and formulating process, to respond to the regulation. We will then break up into three stakeholder working groups, all of which will examine delivery across all five DORA pillars –

  • Compliance – ensure your organization is complying across the 5 pillars, and the evidence needed that technology risks are being mitigated to ensure Operational Resilience.
  • Infrastructure – making sure the organization’s infrastructure is in good operational order
  • Business Applications – how these impact operational resilience, how well contractual arrangements with 3rd party suppliers cover resilience.

Each group will debate and address the questions from their own perspectives. After the workshop the Panel will consolidate the outputs into a best practice discussion document for circulation to the contributors with a view to producing from that a set of best practice guidelines for ratification and wider circulation.
