    CSSF Issues Circular on Guidelines for Managing ICT and Security Risk

    August 25, 2020

    CSSF published a circular (20/750) that implements the EBA guidelines on management of information and communication technology (ICT) and security risks. In this circular, CSSF explains that it has integrated the EBA guidelines into its administrative practice and its regulatory approach to promote the convergence of supervisory practices in this area at the European level. The circular specifies that content of the ICT guidelines also corresponds to the expectations of CSSF concerning the risk management measures and the control and security mechanisms, as mentioned in the Law, dated April 05, 1993, on the financial sector and the Law, dated November 10, 2009, on payment services. The circular came into force on the date of its publication—that is, August 25, 2020.

    The annex to the circular provides the EBA guidelines on management of ICT and security risks. The guidelines set out expectations on the way in which all financial institutions should manage their internal and external ICT and security risks. The guidelines provide financial institutions with a better understanding of supervisory expectations for the management of these risks, covering sound internal governance, information security requirements, ICT operations, project and change management, and business continuity management.
