5 Steps to Prepare your Organization for DORA
Know your third-party risks
DORA will mandate that third-party risk be managed as an integral component of overall ICT risk, to ensure that providers will support your firm in the event of a cybersecurity incident and adhere to tighter security standards. As a result, organizations should regularly assess and monitor these relationships in order to gain instant visibility and keep an eye on red flags and the providers who are critical to the supply chain.
Our flexible third-party risk management solution enables quick and accurate control of risk across your entire digital ecosystem. This 360-degree view into the cyber posture of third-party vendors, directly supports DORA’s focus on third-party risk management.
Financial entities must have internal governance and control frameworks that ensure effective and prudent management of all ICT risks to bring about a high level of digital operational resilience.
SecurityScorecard provides the industry’s most comprehensive Enterprise Cyber Risk Management solution that allows you to spot vulnerabilities and better prevent cyberattacks from happening.
DORA requires financial entities to
implement a process for notifying regulators of ICT-related incidents, sometimes within hours of detection, with a set of specific criteria including number of users affected, criticality and impact on systems, and a view of actual costs and loss due to the incident.

Additional DORA tips
Get your board on board
DORA places responsibility for cybersecurity on the shoulders of the board. A company’s board must ensure that these protocols, policies, and tools are enforced. Failure to do so could result in fines or reputational damage. So make sure management is on the same page, and understands the importance of DORA.
Bring in multiple teams
Cybersecurity is no longer just an ICT issue, which means that compliance with DORA shouldn’t be the sole responsibility of the CISO. Involving legal, compliance, risk management, and other relevant teams from the start will ensure your company can meet the DORA requirements faster and more efficiently.
Get ready now
Firms should start planning now for how to align with the new regulations. Most firms that fall under DORA’s scope no doubt have some of these policies and protocols in place, but this is an opportunity to streamline cybersecurity and become more cyber resilient.
