Financial Sector Cybersecurity Requirements in the Asia-Pacific Region

In 2019 CSIS will release a paper reviewing the cybersecurity and data protection requirements for financial institutions in the leading financial centers and largest consumer markets in the APAC region: Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, India and China. This review will be supported by a series of interviews with leading experts on the ground in each country, including regulators, leading national, regional and global financial institutions, auditors, legal and regulatory experts, and academics.

We will discuss potential avenues to strengthen the security posture of FIs across the region to improve regional resiliency and support global financial stability, and provide recommendations for how to strengthen the security and resilience of the APAC financial system against cyber threats.
