Understanding the Role of Secure Communications in DORA Compliance

As the landscape of digital operational resilience evolves, secure communication channels are becoming more critical. The upcoming DORA regulations emphasise the need for robust cybersecurity measures and operational resilience within financial institutions. Here’s how secure communications technology plays a pivotal role:

1. Ensuring Data Integrity and Confidentiality

DORA Requirement: One of the core principles of DORA is the protection of data integrity and confidentiality within ICT (Information and Communications Technology) environments. This involves safeguarding sensitive information from unauthorised access and ensuring data is accurate and reliable.

Secure Communications Contribution: Salt Communications’ protects data both in transit and at rest, this ensures that sensitive information remains confidential and unaltered, aligning directly with DORA’s emphasis on data integrity.

2. Supporting Incident Response and Management

DORA Requirement: DORA mandates a well-structured incident response mechanism. This includes prompt reporting and effective communication strategies during and after an incident.

Secure Communications Contribution: During incidents, the ability to communicate securely is critical. Salt Communications enables organisations to maintain secure lines of communication, ensuring that incident response teams can coordinate effectively without risking exposure of sensitive information, especially in the event of other systems not being available.

3. Facilitating Regulatory Reporting

DORA Requirement: The new regulations stipulate rigorous reporting standards, including the need for timely and secure submission of regulatory data and incident reports.

Secure Communications Contribution: Salt Communications platform ensures that regulatory reports and sensitive data submissions are encrypted and securely transmitted. This minimises the risk of data breaches and ensures compliance with DORA’s stringent reporting requirements, aiding organisations in maintaining operational transparency and accountability.

4. Enhancing Third-Party Risk Management

DORA Requirement: DORA places significant emphasis on managing risks associated with third-party service providers, ensuring that these entities meet the same standards of resilience and security as the financial institutions themselves.

Secure Communications Contribution: By utilising a secure communication system, financial institutions can ensure that all interactions with third-party providers are secure. This helps in maintaining a consistent security posture across the supply chain, ensuring that third-party risks are managed effectively and in compliance with DORA.

5. Promoting Operational Resilience

DORA Requirement: The ultimate goal of DORA is to enhance the operational resilience of financial institutions, ensuring they can withstand, respond to, and recover from ICT-related disruptions.

Secure Communications Contribution: A secure communication system enhances operational resilience by providing a reliable means for uninterrupted and secure communication during crises.
