Cyber Working Group


Cyberattacks on the securities markets are still relevant and occurring. ISSA has published three papers in the last 24 months, addressing the idiosyncratic risks faced by Securities Services providers. New threats arise which may cause the group to reform. However, at the moment the WG is dormant. If you become aware of a risk which is not addressed in the prior papers, and is unique to the Securities Services industry, please let Colin Parry know and the group will reform to address these issues.

As part of the exploration of Cyber issues, the WG will have a Cyber focused workshop in September looking at the interactions between our clients; i.e. the asset owners, investment managers, custodians and CSDs. This is open to the Cyber WG members and will include and insurance perspective on Cyber risks.
