AFB Virtual Seminar: Implementing the DORA Requirements for Third Party Risk Management

The European Supervisory Authorities published the first set of final draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) under the EU regulation Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) in January 2024.  The primary focus of DORA (and the RTS) is to enhance the digital operational resilience of the EU financial sector, by strengthening financial entities’ Information and Communications Technology (ICT) third-party risk management (TPRM) and risk reporting frameworks.

We are delighted to partner with experts from Baringa’s Risk and Regulatory Control practice for this virtual seminar.  The team at Baringa will share guidance on identifying, assessing, monitoring, and mitigating risks associated with the use of third-party vendors, suppliers, contractors, or partners.

Why attend?

The seminar will focus on TPRM, which has been flagged as a key issue for many organisations implementing DORA.

Baringa will provide members with valuable insights on how firms are evolving their approaches to increasingly complex TPRM – from assessing risks and ensuring due diligence has been conducted, to considering documentation provisions and contingency planning.

Who should attend?

This session is aimed at those working in Third-Party Management, Compliance, Risk, Operations, Legal and Internal Audit.

What will members gain for use at their bank?

  • An overview of the evolving EU regulatory landscape for TPRM
  • Understanding of the crucial relationships necessary for effective risk mitigation
  • Identification of relevant key points from recent DORA RTS
