Digital operational resilience in financial services


The EU has proposed a new regulation that will dramatically increase legal requirements relating to digital risk in finance, with significant implications for the use of Information, Communication & Technology (ICT) by financial services firms in the EU. The proposals will also have a significant impact on ICT service providers, as a result of additional indirect compliance requirements and the proposed regime for direct regulatory oversight of certain ICT providers designated as 'critical' to EU financial entities.
