UK Conduct Regulator Publishes Recommended Practices for Technology Change Implementation02/05/2021The U.K. Financial Conduct Authority has published a report on a multi-firm review setting out recommended practices for regulated firms to take to reduce consumer harm when technology change implementation fails. The FCA's review considered how financial firms manage technology change, the impact of technology change failures and the practices used across the industry that help to reduce the impact on consumers and market disruption of such failures. The FCA's report sets out the practices used by firms that contribute to change success and those that lead to change failure, the impact of change failures, governance and management arrangements, build and deployment of technology changes and the impact of the infrastructure used, in particular, the use of legacy systems and of public cloud-based infrastructure.
