OneTrust expands solutions to support operational resilience, risk management, and compliance

May 22, 2024
OneTrust is also delivering several new OneTrust Third-Party Management capabilities to more efficiently manage third-party risk.

OneTrust today announced the expansion of OneTrust solutions to help organizations drive operational resilience and risk management across their extended enterprise, as well as comply with regulations like the European Union’s (EU) Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA). 

Through DORA, the EU seeks to strengthen the IT security of financial entities. The legislation affects not only banks, insurance companies, and investment firms in the EU, but also critical information and communications technology (ICT) vendors that contract with these financial entities. DORA joins several other regulations, including NIS2, FCA, and LkSG, which aim to strengthen operational resilience.

The Act’s inclusion of ICT third-party risk as part of the overall risk management framework is a transformative requirement for many financial entities and the organizations they conduct business with, making them newly accountable for all downstream risk across third, fourth, and ultimately nth parties. 

“Lack of visibility across third and fourth parties is an all-too-common challenge that makes it difficult to manage risk effectively and drive operational resilience,” said Matthew Moog, General Manager, Third-Party Risk at OneTrust. “OneTrust offers our customers a data-driven risk-based approach, visibility into their extended enterprise, and robust capabilities to manage ICT risk and third parties proactively, and at scale. With these solutions, they can strengthen operational resilience and support compliance obligations for DORA and beyond.”
