The FSB Secretary General Dietrich Domanski spoke at the G7 2019 conference on cyber-security. He talked about the case for international cooperation on cyber-security, highlighted important challenges for cooperation, and discussed the FSB work to promote cyber-security against this backdrop.
Mr. Domanski highlighted that international cooperation on cyber-security in the financial sector is strong and perhaps even stronger than in other areas of regulation. However, significant challenges exist in the international cooperation on cyber-security and these include a host of issues around the sharing of information related to cyber risks and security. The rapid evolution of cyber threats raises the question on whether cooperation processes are sufficiently agile to be fully effective, both in terms of speed and in terms of involvement of relevant stakeholders. These challenges are not fundamentally different from those that international regulatory and supervisory cooperation has had to deal with in the past. The cooperation on cyber-security at early stages put onus on the three aspects of cooperation—enhancing mutual understanding of the issues, ensuring that there is a common language that facilitates effective communication between authorities and the private sector, and identifying possible solutions and making progress in areas where confidentiality of information is less of an issue.
With respect to the aspects of cooperation, the work of FSB on cyber-security includes the following:
- On enhancing mutual understanding, FSB in 2017 took stock of financial sector cyber-security regulations, guidance, and supervisory practices.
- On helping to build a common language, FSB in 2018 published a cyber lexicon to support the work of FSB, standard-setting bodies, authorities, and private-sector participants to address financial sector cyber resilience.
- On finding solutions, FSB is developing effective practices for cyber incident response and recovery. The objective is to identify a set of tools that the private sector and authorities can use in designing incident response and recovery policies. FSB will publish a survey on this next month and will consult on the related report early next year.
- As part of the ongoing work to assess vulnerabilities in the financial system, FSB will continue to discuss issues related to cyber risks as part of its ongoing work .
