EU Digital Operational Resilience Act  (DORA)

The European Union (EU) takes steps to stabilize the financial system

What is the EU Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA)?

The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) introduces EU-wide laws to ensure the operational resilience of the financial services industry. The proposal (approved in 2022; enforcement 2023/2024) builds on existing Information and Communications Technology (ICT) risk management requirements established by various EU institutions and combines recent EU initiatives into a single regulation.

DORA includes a broad range of obligations contained within five overarching pillars:

  • ICT Risk Management
  • Incident Reporting
  • Digital Operational Resilience Testing
  • Information and Intelligence Sharing
  • ICT Third-Party Risk Management

DORA’s scope is sufficiently wide to capture all financial entities – from electronic money institutions to securitization repositories – but it will also apply to third-party IT service providers.

Why is DORA Compliance Important?

There is an absence of detailed and comprehensive rules on digital operational resilience in the EU. Legislation implemented after the 2008 financial crisis failed to fully address digital operational resilience. DORA is designed to fill this gap.

DORA encourages robust, uniform, and comprehensive risk mitigation measures, as well as provides oversight activities and penalties for noncompliance. The meteoric growth in digital risk makes compliance with DORA a business necessity. The comprehensive nature of DORA fits well with broad-based technology solutions that offer governance, risk management and compliance. Solutions that can plus up DORA compliance with additional digital operational resilience capabilities like business continuity offer an ideal fit.
