In an increasingly digitised world, an elevated level of sophistication and personalization is expected from the banks when approaching the customers. To meet such expectations, not only a thorough knowledge and understanding of the customers' needs, but also an attentive customer-centric relation is needed. The banks should be able to know when, how and what to offer to their customer, taking into account their financial profile, as well as contemplating a well-thought engagement and communication strategy.

The panel will delve into the intricacies of the Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA), the pioneering European framework that came into effect on January 16, 2023. By 17 January 2025, over 22,000 financial entities and ICT Service providers across the EU are expected to achieve compliance with this regulation. This, among other important activities, implies that millions of contracts within the EU will require renegotiation, placing a critical emphasis on fulfilling value chain requirements.

The panelists will try to unravel the essence of DORA by addressing key questions: What are the key requirements of DORA? How can financial institutions navigate their most pressing challenges, and why must organizations of varying sizes adopt distinct strategies? Is the talent pool of IT Risk managers adequate, and how will cyber teams be impacted? And most importantly, can we make it on time or are we already behind schedule in our preparations?
