Automate Your DORA Compliance with Runecast

About DORA Compliance 

The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) is a security standard that addresses an important issue in the EU financial regulation and is transforming the way financial institutions approach digital resilience. Established by the EU Union, this regulation came into effect on January 16, 2023, with a 24-month period for entities to become compliant. So all entities should be compliant by January 17, 2025. 

DORA aims to enhance the resilience of digital operations and protect the integrity of the financial market infrastructure in the European Union. Compliance with DORA is a pathway to creating a more secure and reliable digital environment within financial institutions. The act impacts day-to-day operations, security protocols, and compliance measures.

Penalties for DORA Non-Compliance

Non-compliance with DORA can result in administrative fines, reputational damage, and even the withdrawal of authorization, all of which could lead to a loss of competitive advantage in the EU financial market. Penalties can vary based on the specific circumstances but may include fines of up to 10 million euros or 5% of an organization's total annual turnover. For repeat offenders, the withdrawal of authorization is also a possibility. Therefore, adherence to DORA is not merely a legal requirement but a critical business need for financial institutions operating in the EU.
