The regulators’ focus on firms’ operational resilience has never been greater, with both the PRA and FCA agreeing that operational resilience is as important an issue as financial resilience. Several high profile incidents have led the regulators to make operational resilience a top priority.

While it is widely accepted that disruptions will occur, the onus is on firms to identify and ensure the continuity of their most important services and to set appropriate risk appetites for their businesses. The regulators expect firms to have clear governance arrangements and senior management accountability in relation to this topic, which underscores the seriousness with which this issue is being addressed by the FCA and PRA.

This event will explore the key questions that firms should consider in their journey to become and remain resilient. The event will bring together experts from across the field to debate the various challenges the industry faces and consider what best practice looks like.
