9th Annual Operational Resilience in Financial Services Summit 2022

City & Financial Global was delighted to be host ‘The 9th Annual Operational Resilience for Financial Institutions Summit’ in central London on 25 May, 2022.

Since this was an 'in person' event, attendees were able to reap the benefits of being able to interact and network face to face.

The importance of operational resilience has come into sharp focus recently due to the Ukraine-Russia crisis. UK regulators have told regulated firms that they must be particularly vigilant in relation to an increase in cyber-attacks, the robustness of important business services, the effectiveness of their business continuity and incident management plans, the need to report incidents promptly and the detection of false information. 

8th operational resilience and cyber security summit 2021

Following the recent publication of the final rules on operational resilience by the Bank of England/PRA and the FCA, City and Financial Global was delighted to present “The 8th Operational Resilience and Cyber Security Summit”, which took place virtually on 25 May 2021. The objective of the conference was to assist financial institutions with implementing best practice operational resilience and cyber security measures that are consistent with the final rules.

Operational resilience in the finance sector 2019

It was unsurprising that UK financial regulators have recently decided to introduce a specific operational resilience function under the Senior Managers and Certification Regime, SMF 24, which, for the first time, will enable regulators to hold senior management specifically responsible for any failings in operational resilience. At a recent hearing of the Treasury Select Committee, it was suggested that operational resilience would become a ‘third pillar’ of regulation, alongside prudential and conduct regulation. The decision to introduce SMF 24 reflects the fact that, over a decade on from the financial crisis, the focus of regulators has been steadily shifting from pure operational risk management towards operational resilience.
