How to comply with DORA

Many CISO's and Board room members come to us with questions about how to comply with cybersecurity law DORA. In an era characterized by digital transformation and cyber threats, adherence to cybersecurity legislation has never been more critical.

DORA requires organizations in the financial sector to demonstrate a thorough, risk-based implementation of cybersecurity measures. At Secura, we're committed to helping your organization comply with applicable law. Contact us for more information.

Understanding the Legislative Requirements

DORA sets a high-level framework for cybersecurity. But how can your organization interpret these regulations in practical terms? It's important to remember that only a court or regulator can definitively assess compliance.

Four-Step Compliance Approach


Step 1 - Initial Assessment

This step includes GAP assessment, and Security Maturity Assessment (SMA), designed to establish the current situation.


Step 2 - Improvement Planning

Consulting services can assist with the creation of an improvement plan that identifies priorities and practical steps towards full compliance.


Step 3 - Result Evaluation

After executing the improvement plan, the organization should evaluate the effectiveness of the implemented controls. If it yields the desired results, the organization is ready to proceed to the audit stage.


Step 4 - Conducting Audits

Regular audits against standards and frameworks should be carried out to confirm that the organization continues to comply with the evolving cybersecurity landscape. Assurance services are available to support organizations through this process.

Overall, complying with cybersecurity laws and regulations like DORA may seem complex and daunting, but the above steps can make the process more manageable. Organizations can leverage the expertise of cybersecurity consultants to navigate the complexities of these regulations and ensure they are adequately protecting their data and systems while meeting their legal and regulatory obligations.
