The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) is coming: start preparing today

It was recently announced that the EU Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) has been passed into law by European Lawmakers. This means that the EU legislation for the financial sector is one step closer to being enforced, and affected businesses need to get ready now. 

Below, you’ll find a number of resources designed to help you understand DORA, and how you can begin to improve your organizational resilience to mitigate threats. Also, be sure to keep your eyes open in the coming weeks and months as we continue to roll out more content relating to DORA, and how businesses can prepare. 

What is the Digital Operational Resilience Act, and who will it apply to?

The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) is European legislation that requires all financial entities in the European Union (and those that want access to it) to have safeguards in place to manage digital risks. It will apply to the EU financial sector and any business that wants to do business with those in it. It will also apply to third-party software providers. Find out more in our whitepaper.
