DORA Boardroom Training

Attention all boardroom members in the financial sector: DORA will come into effect in January 2025. Does the Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) apply to your organization? From that moment on, you are legally responsible for cyber security within your organization.

You are required to have knowledge of cybersecurity, so that you can communicate it correctly. To meet this requirement, the regulation expects you to follow cybersecurity training.

De Clercq Lawyers and Secura are committed to helping you comply with these training demands of DORA. During our DORA Boardroom Training, you will learn how to protect your organization's digital infrastructure against cyber threats. After this 1-day training, you will meet the training requirements of DORA and receive a certificate.

The DORA Boardroom Training is a collaboration between De Clercq Lawyers and Notary and Secura's cybersecurity experts.
