    IOSCO Report Examines Application of International Cyber Standards

    June 18, 2019

    IOSCO published a final report that examines the application of the three internationally recognized cyber standards and frameworks by IOSCO member jurisdictions. This report, by the IOSCO Cyber Task Force, also identifies potential gaps in the application of these standards and seeks to promote sound cyber practices across the IOSCO membership.

    The three cyber standards are the CPMI-IOSCO Guidance on Cyber Resilience for Financial Market Infrastructures; the National Institute of Standards and Technology Framework for improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity; and the International Organization for Standardization 27000 series standards. The report does not propose new cyber standards or guidance. By highlighting the application of the Core Standards by some IOSCO members, the Cyber Task Force hopes more members will review their own cyber standards against the practices of the Core Standards and, where relevant, use the Core Standards as a model to further enhance their cyber regimes. Finally, the report sets out a series of questions that firms and regulators may use to promote awareness of cyber good practices or to guide them as they review their own practices.

    The report finds that IOSCO members have made good progress in establishing appropriate cyber regimes, though there is still work to be done in key areas. The Cyber Task Force recommends that further work be considered to explore this report’s findings. It is recommended that the Cyber Task Force should consider exploring the use of sector-wide organizational surveys as part of the next phase of its work to gain a better understanding of where the gaps lie. The report is intended to serve as a resource for financial market regulators and firms, raise awareness of existing international cyber standards and frameworks, and encourage the adoption of good practices to protect against cyber risk.
