Course details:

The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA), is a regulatory initiative carried out by the EU to harmonise Information and Communication Technology (ICT) risk requirements across Europe in the financial services industry.

It builds on existing institutional EU requirements that manage information and communication risks and compliments what is being implemented in the UK and other countries as well.

DORA aims to prevent and mitigate cyber threats and ensure that financial entities can withstand, respond to, and recover from all types of ICT related disruptions and threats.
