DORA was introduced as a method of building risk resilience within financial organizations, ensuring that they establish and monitor trust networks among their ICT and their vendors.

This paper from SecurityScorecard highlights the security risks - including third-party - impacting financial entities in the EU today and introduces a verification framework for DORA, covering all major aspects of it to support institutions in their preparation.
