The conversation explored how DORA will reshape the #financialservices industry. Key takeaways focused on:

  • Comprehension of the Impact: DORA’s implications for various facets of financial institutions were meticulously examined, providing a clear understanding of the impending changes.
  • Preparation Roadmap: The panel addressed the steps organizations should undertake to ensure they are #prepared for DORA’s enforcement in January 2025.
  • Prioritization for the Ensuing Six Months: Specific actions and areas of focused attention were highlighted, equipping organizations with a strategic plan to effectively navigate the next half-year.
