Whilst IT outsourcing can prove to be very beneficial to an organisation, relying on third-parties to provide critical or important functions brings additional risk and a responsibility to properly govern, manage and mitigate the associated risks.
Regulators are understandably concerned over the increasing reliance on third-parties and have proposed tighter rules for financial services firms wanting to outsource functions, with stricter and stronger rules for the outsourcing of essential operations such as IT. Regulators across the EU have made it clear that institutions must maintain responsibility for all outsourced functions and oversee and manage all risks.
To properly manage the risks associated with IT outsourcing and ensure compliance, financial services firms must first understand current EU regulation and then implement robust end-to-end risk management programmes which ensure compliance.
To support EU financial services organisations on their journey to compliance we have compiled the key EU regulations around IT outsourcing, highlighting any specific rules and guidance around business continuity and contingency planning for critical functions. In this paper, you’ll also find NCC Group’s best practice advice and recommended solutions for managing third-party risk and ensuring compliance.
