Op. Resilience in Prof. Services – Compliance in the Supply Chain

Join me July 22, 2021 at 9am EST!

In December 20219, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK published a paper that “…Firms identify their important business services and apply resilience impact tolerances.” This has can have a significant impact upon an organization’s supply chain and ensuring compliance with the FCA directive. I speak with Sarah Garrington who will outline the compliance requirements contained within the FCA publication and what organizations can do to address it. Sarah outlines high-level considerations and steps corporate leaders must consider when planning to respond to the FCA requirement and ensure compliance. We even touch on work completed via the Business Impact Analysis (BIA). The FCA directive will have far-reaching impacts, so be sure to tune in and learn what you might need to address, even if you’re not in the UK. A very information and important episode.
