Objectives of the session

The objective of this session is to discuss how cyber-threats are evolving in the financial sector notably in the context of increasing digitalisation and outsourcing, the remaining areas of vulnerability and whether the on-going improvement of cyber-security and cyber-resilience approaches at the EU and global levels are sufficient to address these issues and evolutions.

Points of discussion

How are cyber-threats evolving in the financial sector notably with increasing digitalisation and outsourcing? How is the financial sector adapting to these evolutions and what are the main challenges ahead? Do cyber-threats pose systemic risks in the financial sector?

What are the main areas of improvement of cybersecurity and cyber-resilience approaches in the financial sector? Are existing policy measures and supervision at EU level sufficient to support cybersecurity and cyber-resilience? What improvements can be expected from the EU Cybersecurity Act and the next steps planned by the Commission?

What are the main challenges related to global cooperation on cybersecurity? Are existing processes adequate and how to strengthen international cooperation on cybersecurity? What can be expected from on-going initiatives at the international level such as the G7 cyber-security initiative?
