The EU Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) is in force since January 16, 2023. It aims at harmonising and streamlining financial entities’ conduct of ICT risk management. DORA’s origin is in the increased risks arising from the EU financial services sector’s reliance on ICT, as well as in the lack of harmonised EU-level rules on digital operational resilience and the consequent fragmented and inconsistent rules at EU member state level. Financial entities in the European Union (EU) and their critical ICT providers must be ready to comply with DORA by January 17, 2025.

  • be able to understand how your entity may be impacted by DORA from a regulatory, organizational, and operational/technical perspective
