Navigating the Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA)

As the financial landscape continues to evolve in an increasingly digital world, regulators are adapting to ensure operational resilience. The upcoming Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) stands as a pivotal regulatory framework aimed at enhancing the stability and security of the financial sector within the European Union (EU).

DORA emphasizes the importance of robust digital operational practices to safeguard financial stability and protect consumers. Financial players are expected to comply with stringent standards to mitigate risks associated with operational failures, cyber threats, and technology disruptions. DORA includes key provisions regarding, amongst others, operational resilience, ICT risk management, third-party service providers and incident reporting.

While the implementation of DORA is set to commence in January 2025, a significant number of companies have considerable ground to cover in readiness for DORA compliance. Executing the necessary measures may prove time-consuming, particularly in cases where deficiencies exist within the company’s current processes and systems.
