Organizational resilience refers to an entity’s capacity to anticipate, adapt, respond, and recover from a wide range of internal and external challenges, disruptions, and shocks while maintaining its core functions, values, and stakeholder relationships. Within a digital world with technology constant evolution the Digital Transformation Risks takes extreme significance and forces EU bodies to adjust their overview strategies by publishing subject matter compliance frameworks.
The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) arises from the increasing digitization of businesses and financial services provided by financial entities, aiming to harmonize the rules related to the security of networks and information systems currently in force within the European Union. DORA establishes standards that address the risks faced by these entities. It came into effect on January 16, 2023, with a 24-month implementation period. From January 17, 2025, the regulation will be mandatorily applicable.
