Recently, the European Commission published a proposal for a new regulation – the Digital Operational Resilience Act ("DORA") – and an accompanying directive to harmonise digital operational resilience rules for financial organisations in the EU. In this respect on the 11th May 2021, the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) organized a webinar entitled "Cybsersecurity in Supervision" ( to provide an overview of DORA and the challenges concerning its eventual implementation. The University of Malta was invited to provide a keynote about technical security controls and which, in turn, any compliant security process would have to rely upon, entitled "Cybersecurity: Future and Trends". The talk presented an overview of the internal mechanisms of these security controls, along with how these are currently being affected by the highly dynamic threat landscape. This was followed by the role of scientific research to advance the state of the art. In particular, the threat of long-engaging and highly-stealthy cyberattacks was presented in the context of the LOCARD chain of custody platform, and the MobFor digital forensics tool which is planned to form part of LOCARD's investigator toolkit in providing digital evidence from the volatile memory of smartphones. The international audience included IT Auditors, IT Experts, ICT Risk Supervisors, Inspections Managers, and Heads of Department.
