Cyber related crime is on the rise, both in quantity and sophistication. Most systems today are connected making them vulnerable. Further, personal and business data is viewed as the “new gold” and may be very valuable.
The challenging landscape of cybersecurity threats is continuously evolving, and every organisation should adopt a suitable strategy for protection, detection and response to cyberattacks.
Any such strategy must address several questions: How ready is my organization to face a cyber attack or data breach? Do we have a crisis team/incident response plan in place? Do we know what regulations are in place that are related to cyber/data breaches and the necessary reporting requirements? And the list goes on.
To answer these questions, Arendt has developed a One-Stop-Shop offering that provides comprehensive support from a legal, regulatory and operational perspective, delivered by a multidisciplinary team.

Regulations regarding cybersecurity & information protection are on the rise across the globe. The EU continues to be the leading pioneer of cyber and information protection rules including the recently passed DORA (Digital Operational Resilience Act). This EU regulatory framework has been in force as from 16 January 2023 and creates a unified regulatory framework for digital operational resilience which requires EU financial entities to ensure they can withstand, respond to and recover from any ICT-related threats.
The main DORA-requirements for in scope entities deal with a wide range of digital operational resilience topics, divided into 5 pillars:
ICT risk management
ICT-related incident management, classification and reporting
Digital operational resilience testing
Managing of ICT third-party risk
