ORIC International's Operational Resilience Event
We were delighted to welcome over 100 guests to our operational resilience event on 5th March, where they listened to a diverse and hugely experienced panel share their thoughts on this very topical subject. Justin Elks, Managing Director of Crowe UK, presented the highlights of a joint survey of the ORIC members on their current state of readiness, and this fuelled a rich and thought- provoking discussion between the panellists and audience. We heard the views of a CEO, CRO, senior regulator and an Operational Resilience & Security Director and audience members were able to ask questions on a range of topics under the umbrella of operational resilience.
The importance of operational resilience has been brought into sharp relief by the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, and ORIC in collaboration with Crowe in the spring, and this will provide firms with broad and insightful coverage of the topic. If you are not already involved in the weekly COVID-19 call and would like to participate, or believe colleagues within your firm would benefit, please contact Chris Watson for further details.
ORIC International have quickly instituted an industry wide weekly conference call to facilitate the sharing of best practice and lessons learned between firms.The insight from both the operational resilience survey and these weekly calls will help ORIC to support its members and inform the longer-term agenda regarding operational resilience. We will also be producing a thought leadership paper.
