Time is running out for PIMFA member firms to comply with The FCA’s new operational resilience regulations that come into force on 31st March 2022. The deadline gives firms less than four months to carry out mapping and testing, to a level of sophistication necessary to accurately identify their important business services (IBS), set impact tolerances and identify any vulnerabilities in their operational resilience.
This live, interactive, online 3-hour session led by Richard Preece, Director of DA Resilience provides your Compliance and Risk function with confidence and knowledge to assess, compare, test, evaluate and score your approach to Operational Resilience against good practice and the regulator’s expectations.
This training session will cover:
• Recognising what a good approach to Operational Resilience looks like?
• Defining critical services and calculating financial, regulatory and client impact.
• Quantifying the maximum acceptable level of disruption through severe but plausible scenarios.
• Identifying control improvements.
• Optimising controls for clearly defining impact tolerances.
• Providing effective risk management and oversight of third-party vendors
• The role and responsibilities of senior managers
• An Operational Resilience checklist for review
