12 December 2023 – Is Organisational Resilience an IT problem?

Webinar: Is organisational resilience an IT problem?

Tuesday 12 December: 10am - 11am

The TechFire webinar series returns, asking the burning question 'Is organisational resilience an IT problem? 

Operational resilience is more than security, it's a mesh of factors extending beyond security to include the pace of technological change, workforce dynamics and geopolitical events. Keeping any organisation safe and secure means handling an array of threats from cyber crime to climate change. With so many threats to business continuity it can be hard to figure out where the proverbial buck stops. If a department has the capability to solve a localised problem it may be deploying resources away from issues faced by the wider business.

This tension between business and IT is most apparent when it comes to organisational resilience, where keeping the lights on goes from an abstract concept to a pressing reality.

What's more, resilience is a now legal issue following the adoption of the Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA), which brings with it a penalty of up to 2% of global turnover for non-compliance.

Join David Tyrrell, vice president, EMEA, NTT Data, Jonathan Law, digital operational resilience programme director at AIB and Michael O’Reilly, CTO, EMEA, NTT Data for an online, in-depth conversation on the challenges of resilience, at a time when organisations are coming under more scrutiny than ever. The discussion will also present the results of a survey of IT professionals carried out by TechCentral.ie
