Business insights

We invite you to an evening of great food, luxury wines and engaging business conversations at the star-studded Spring at Somerset House. Hosted by Chief Wine Officer, Palo Alto and AWS, you’ll discover how the most successful finance enterprises achieve unprecedented time-to-market with their DORA compliant cloud apps. One large bank increased the number of apps deployed ten times over in just six months, all while maintaining a robust security posture and compliance. While you and your industry peers unpack this winning strategy with AWS’ Head of Security & Compliance for FSI, Stephen James Martin and Legal & General’s Information Security Manager, Melissa Lambert, you’ll also enjoy a premium wine tasting experience from our wine expert. Are you ready to begin?

The development of cloud apps for the finance sector requires a delicate balance of speed, security and compliance. Developers must rush to deploy new apps that satisfy customers while constantly worrying about their fragmented security posture, security tools, and compliance with key legislation such as DORA. At this event, you’ll see how the most pioneering enterprises have stepped out of this dilemma, integrating speed, scale, security, and policy enforcement into one unstoppable formula.

Key discussion points

  • Strategies to achieve 60% reduction in time spent on vulnerability remediation after deploying shift-left security capabilities
  • How to deploy new DORA-ready cloud products and features 30 times faster
  • How to integrate remediation, code security, and policy enforcement

This event is open to just 12 senior leaders from financial services organisations in London. We’d also love to host one of your senior colleagues, if you choose to bring one along. Just let the event manager know ; but book your own spot first – they go fast!
