Cloudera named a leader in 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Cloud Database Management Systems Get the report

Watch now

How a firm manages data is now intrinsic to its value, yet the FS risk management framework provides no way to account for IT obsolescence, cloud concentration and data risks on the balance sheet. New operational resilience obligations, 3rd party risk management guidelines and cloud registries are due soon. ESG could provide a path forwards, but only if we can agree egTech standards.

Join us for a virtual panel of regulatory risk experts from Cloudera, European Central Bank, and Deloitte, as they share their industry perspectives on topics that include:

  • New regulatory concerns over third party risk, operational resilience and cloud
  • Overcoming data and infrastructure policy challenges in a cloud centric world
  • The future of RegTech standards for idiosyncratic and systemic technical risk measurement

The session will be moderated by PJ DI Giammarino, CEO & Founder of JWG, independent analyst group. Following the event, all attendees will receive a free copy of JWGs latest research paper.
