英国央行要求金融企业必须接受网络安全压力测试

近日有报道称,英国央行将强制要求英国金融服务公司接受网络安全压力测试,以确保其具备应对重大网络漏洞攻击的应对能力。

此外,英格兰银行还想借此了解相关金融机构防御和恢复服务的具体时间。因为,支付等银行业务的终端可能会导致银行客户无法购买商品,无法获得资金,进而影响经济运转。

受到压力测试“邀请”的企业必须拿出完整、有说服力的应对方案。如果企业未能通过测试,还需要提供后续的补救措施。

据了解,这项压力测试将于2019年开始试点,不过英格兰银行目前并未透露哪些公司将参与这项测试。

此前,美国证券交易委员会就曾表示,在网络安全方面,投资者经常无法获得所需的披露信息。

该机构的Robert Jackson Jr在企业监管协会年会上也曾指出,应该为投资者提供这些信息,尤其是网络安全信息。网络安全应该成为平台和企业运营的重中之重。

 

Financial services companies in the U.K will have to undergo cyber stress tests to ensure they could recover if they were hit with a major cyber breach.

According to a report in City A.M., citing the Bank of England, the test will ensure that banks have enough defenses built up to withstand a hit on their system. The Bank of England wants to know how long it would take for key services of financial services companies, such as payments, to recover. The report noted that Bank of England contends that a disruption to a bank’s payments could hurt the economy because customers of the bank wouldn’t be able to purchase things, nor would they be able to access their money.

The financial services companies that are subjected to the stress tests would have to show how they will meet the standard in the event of an attack. If a firm fails the test, it would have to agree to remedial action plans that improve its ability to handle similar situations if they were to arise again. The stress tests will start as a pilot in 2019, noted the report. The Bank of England didn’t say which firms would face the cyber stress tests, according to City A.M.

The move on the part of the Bank of England comes after the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently said, when it comes to cybersecurity, investors are not getting the disclosures they need.

“Let’s give them some information for starters (and promptly),” SEC’s Robert Jackson, Jr. told the annual meeting of the Society for Corporate Governance in Washington, D.C.

Though Jackson isn’t sure what additional cybersecurity information investors need, he does know that information should be given to investors quickly. However, he acknowledged it is difficult to know what disclosure best practices should be.

“Exactly what companies should say, I am open,” Jackson said. One thing he is certain of: Cybersecurity needs to be a top priority.
