As the digital footprint of companies, consumers and investors expands, it also increases their vulnerability to cyber threats.
Our goal is to improve the cyber resilience of all entities operating in Australia’s financial markets. We do this through close collaboration with regulated firms, regulators and Government.
To help firms improve their cyber resilience, we have published good practice guidance and key questions for boards to ask about their firm’s cyber resilience.
We also have a number of other resources to help you improve your firm's cyber resilience.
Assessing cyber resilience in the financial markets sector
Commencing in 2016 and over a 24 month period, we asked 101 firms across the financial markets sector to complete a self-assessment survey on their cyber resilience.
The results of these self-assessment surveys showed that while firms are getting better at managing cyber risk, there's still work to do.
In 2019 we issued a subsequent report, identifying key trends from self-assessment surveys, and highlighting existing good practices and areas for improvement.
