DORA Compliance

We empower businesses like yours to achieve and excel in DORA Compliance.

What’s DORA?

The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) is a significant regulatory initiative by the European Commission (EU) aimed at enhancing the cybersecurity measures within the EU financial services sector. With an effective date set for January 2025, DORA mandates crucial steps to fortify the resilience of key participants in the financial system against the escalating threats of cyber-attacks and other risks.

What is DORA and what does it mean for you company?

Companies falling under DORA’s purview are obligated to meet five primary requirements:

  1. Incident Response Plan: Firms must develop a detailed incident response plan, outlining the definition of a cyberattack, appropriate employee responses, and procedures for restoring operations following a security breach.
  2. Cybersecurity Program: A comprehensive cybersecurity program, including risk assessments of potential cyber threats and corresponding mitigation plans, is mandated.
  3. Security Controls: Companies must maintain robust security controls over their digital infrastructure, encompassing encryption, authentication, access controls, audit trails, monitoring systems, event management systems, and incident response plans.
  4. Incident Reporting: Timely reporting of incidents is required, allowing regulators to assess vulnerabilities and provide recommendations for enhancing security postures.
  5. Continuity of Service: Establishing a plan to ensure the continuity of service during disruptions is essential for compliance.
