Ensure alignment with DORA

DORA is an EU regulation that seeks to increase the resilience of financial entities and the organisations that provide them with IT services.

DORA stipulates that those subject to the Act provide suitable assurance of their compliance via third-party testing. Our penetration testing service, designed for continual improvement and resilience against evolving cyber threats, is intended as an ongoing service. It is a subscription service, offering various tests over time and available for multi-year engagements. This ensures the ongoing strengthening of your systems while maintaining your compliance with DORA.

We will provide a range of technical assessments that give confidence in your cyber security and meet the resilience testing requirements of DORA. The service covers:

  • Vulnerability scanning
  • External penetration testing
  • Web application testing
  • Phishing assessment
  • Open-source intelligence gathering
  • Scenario-based testing

Receive comprehensive reports

As part of the testing process, you will receive reports that identify your vulnerabilities and provide remediation advice. These will include high-level and non-technical summaries, a detailed description of the methodologies used for testing, and a consultant’s commentary with details of each technical vulnerability found.
