DORA compliance

Preparing for DORA Compliance

In the quest for DORA compliance, we offer a solution for financial services before the January 2025 deadline

DORA compliance is born of the financial sector’s growing dependence on Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and digital data, transforming the industry into a prime target for sophisticated threat actors. These actors aim to disrupt banking operations, pilfer customer data, and cause widespread chaos, posing a significant risk to the financial industry’s infrastructure—a cornerstone of daily operations for individuals and businesses alike.  

To combat these threats, financial institutions must fortify their ability to withstand, respond to, and recover from ICT incidents, ensuring minimal disruption to critical functions and maintaining seamless service for customers and the financial system at large. The European Union’s Digital Operations and Resilience Act (DORA) represents a concerted effort to strengthen the financial sector’s defenses against ICT-related threats, setting forth stringent, uniform requirements across EU member states to achieve this goal.

A platform like our own offers a solution that aligns perfectly with DORA’s mandates by providing financial organizations with the tools necessary to achieve and maintain compliance. TrueFort’s capabilities extend beyond traditional security measures, offering a comprehensive and holistic approach to safeguarding critical financial operations and for ransomware containment, plus acting as a genuine solution against zero-day threats and other sophisticated cyber attacks.  

TrueFort’s Alignment with DORA Requirements:  

  • Risk-Based Visibility: TrueFort excels in offering granular, risk-based visibility into application and workload behaviors across the financial institution’s digital estate. This aligns with DORA’s call for resilient ICT systems that continuously identify and mitigate ICT risks.  
  • Anomaly Detection and Behavioral Analytics: By leveraging advanced analytics, TrueFort can detect anomalous activities that deviate from established norms, facilitating rapid response to potential ICT incidents. This capability is crucial for establishing the comprehensive business continuity plans mandated by DORA.  
  • Proactive and Reactive Security Postures: TrueFort’s platform allows for the implementation of proactive security measures, such as the isolation of critical assets to prevent breach spread—a key aspect of breach containment emphasized by DORA. Additionally, in the event of an active attack, the TrueFort Platform enables swift, reactive measures to contain and mitigate the incident, minimizing potential disruption.  
  • Integration with Third-Party Services: Understanding the importance of managing third-party risk, TrueFort offers robust monitoring and management capabilities for ICT third-party providers, ensuring that financial organizations can maintain harmonious, secure relationships with external entities as prescribed by DORA.  
  • Facilitating Secure Information Sharing: TrueFort promotes a culture of collaboration and information sharing among financial entities, enhancing digital operational resilience by increasing awareness of ICT risks and supporting defensive and mitigation strategies. This fosters the secure exchange of cyber threat information, a core pillar of DORA’s framework.
