ECB published the European framework for Threat Intelligence-Based Ethical Red Teaming (TIBER-EU). TIBER-EU is the first Europe-wide framework for controlled and bespoke tests against cyber attacks in the financial market. This framework enables European and national authorities to work with financial entities to put in place a program to test and improve their resilience against sophisticated cyber attacks.

The TIBER-EU framework facilitates a harmonized European approach toward intelligence-led tests which mimic the tactics, techniques, and procedures of real hackers who can be a genuine threat. TIBER-EU-based tests simulate a cyber attack on an entity’s critical functions and underlying systems, such as its people, processes, and technologies. This helps the entity to assess its protection, detection, and response capabilities against potential cyber attacks, thus enabling it to learn and evolve to a higher level of cyber maturity. The TIBER-EU framework has been designed for national and European authorities and entities that form the core financial infrastructure, including entities with cross-border activities which fall within the regulatory remit of several authorities. The framework can be used for any type of financial-sector entity. For the purposes of the TIBER-EU framework, entities include payment systems, central securities depositories, central counterparty clearing houses, trade repositories, credit rating agencies, stock exchanges, securities settlement platforms, banks, payment institutions, insurance companies, asset management companies and any other service providers deemed critical for the functioning of the financial sector.
