The Digital Operational Resilience Act, or DORA, is a European Union (EU) regulation that creates a binding, comprehensive information, and communication technology (ICT) risk management framework for the EU financial sector. The Act seeks to harmonise digital resilience in the EU through ICT related risk management and incident reporting. The regulation was published on 27 December 2022, in the official journal of the EU and will apply in full from January 2025.
