Panel discussion: How ISO 27001 can help you comply with DORA

In an era where digital resilience is paramount, DORA (Digital Operational Resilience Act) represents a significant step forward in ensuring the financial sector’s digital infrastructure can withstand cyber threats. Compliance with DORA is not just a regulatory requirement but a strategic advantage in safeguarding critical digital operations. However, achieving compliance can be challenging, requiring a comprehensive approach to information security management.

This is where ISO 27001, the international standard for an ISMS (information security management system), is invaluable. ISO 27001 provides a systematic and well-structured approach that can serve as the foundation for organisations aiming to comply with DORA. By aligning ISO 27001’s best practices with DORA’s requirements, organisations can enhance their operational resilience, protect against cyber threats, and ensure the continuity of critical functions in a digital landscape that is constantly evolving.

Webinar agenda:

We will discuss:

  • DORA’s objectives for enhancing digital operational resilience in the financial sector;
  • The role of ISO 27001 in supporting compliance with DORA;
  • Strategies for aligning your ISMS with DORA’s expectations using ISO 27001; and
  • Common challenges in achieving DORA compliance through ISO 27001 and strategies to overcome these obstacles.
  • How CyberComply can help you comply with DORA and ISO 27001.
