Are you DFSA compliant?

How to remain compliant and use the DFSA rulebooks to your advantage.

The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) regulates all financial services conducted in (or with) the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

DFSA Compliance

Every financial services business operating in the DIFC needs to be compliant with the DFSA rule books, and in particular the Prudential – Investment, Insurance, Intermediation and Banking Module (PIB).

This comprises strict rules that cover IT systems, information security, outsourcing of IT functions, and disaster recovery measures relating to business continuity.

To stick to these rules, you need to have the right systems and controls in place to manage IT risks, and your staff have to be trained in compliance on an annual basis.

We appreciate, though, that this isn't as straightforward in practice as it may sound, which is where we can help. Our DFSA compliance advisory and management services can manage this for you, so you can focus on your core business.

We also have a range of compliance-ready IT products and services, to help you bridge any gaps and tackle any IT risks that may exist in your IT infrastructure and processes, before they become a compliance issue. 

Penta, which operates out of two global financial centres, is the first choice for financial services providers when it comes to IT regulatory compliance.
