Registration is closed

Traditionally, becoming an Accredited Data Recipient (ADR) involves manual testing of a long list of the security controls that an ADR must have in place. 

This can be a very costly process – which can result in many smaller organisations deciding not to seek accreditation.   

Join us at this event to learn about RegTech that is automating control testing to reduce costs and encourage participation in the CDR data sharing system.

  • Introduction to CDR and the importance of infosecurity
  • RegTech meets CDR | automating compliance to speed up accreditation
  • Automated controls in CDR information security assurance 
  • Operationalising information security assurance – for life not just accreditation?
  • Case studies on how CDR can help you
