Financial services are rapidly becoming more digital and mobile. Digital resilience is therefore increasingly important to maintain confidence in the financial system and ensure economic growth.

The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA, Regulation 2022/2554) aims to ensure the digital resilience of the financial system. The law requires all companies to ensure that they can withstand all types of ICT disruptions and threats. One of the ways they must achieve this is by educating their employees and decision-makers.

This awareness e-learning introduces you to the Digital Operational Resilience Act, DORA. We cover the objective and scope of this Act and introduce you to DORA’s requirements (for ICT risk management, handling incidents and digital operational resilience testing). We conclude with some steps organisations can take to prepare for DORA.

Target audience

This training is mainly intended for those who need to know the basics of what DORA requires from the financial institution.

Preliminary training

This is a training course at HBO level. There are no specific prior education requirements for this course. However, we do assume that you have general knowledge of the financial sector.

To increase your own digital operational resilience, you can take the Cybersecurity Awareness and AVG Awareness courses.


In this awareness e-learning, we will outline the requirements of DORA. After completing the training, you will have knowledge of:

  1. The objective and scope of DORA;
  2. DORA’s requirements for organising ICT risk management;
  3. How organisations in scope of DORA should handle ICT incidents;
  4. DORA’s requirements for digital operational resilience testing;
  5. ICT risk management requirements regarding third-party providers;
  6. Information exchange arrangements and organisation of supervision;
  7. The steps organisations can take to prepare for DORA.

This course teaches you what requirements DORA imposes on financial institutions.
