DIGITAL OPERATIONAL RESILIENCE ACT (DORA)​

As Data Security experts, we are here to help you navigate DORA

The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) is a new European Union regulation, applicable for the Finance and Insurance Industries of EU nations. It is a set of standards and rules around ICT Risk Management. These sectors must comply with DORA in order to safeguard against crisis jeopardising financial markets across the EU. The legislation does not directly apply to the UK, however if a UK based company is engaged with, or seeks to engage with an EU-based company, then it’s very likely that you will need to comply to DORA. The deadline for compliance is January 2025.
