Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)

In a speech delivered at the FCA’s Annual Public Meeting on 11 September 2018, Chief Executive Andrew Bailey spoke, among other things, about operational risks – a new source of risk to the FCA’s objectives. He touched on the four themes of operational resilience (including cyber risk), the impact of technological change and innovation, the challenge of financial crime, and data issues (which he referred to as “the fastest rising risk on our landscape”).
