Cybersecurity in the digital economy

Challenges and threats to the financial services sector

In a world where online services continue to grow in importance, both for consumers and businesses, the financial sector plays a crucial role. We can find new digital solutions being developed in essentially all areas of financial services, from retail banking to securities trading and from payments to clearing and settlement Ensuring security in cyberspace is a high priority for EU lawmakers and the importance will grow at the same pace as new services are being developed. The fight against cybercrime can also reconcile safety and customers’ choice to ensure that the Internet and the mobile channels keep their promises of delivering economic growth for the EU. Discussion points•   What can the financial industry do to adopt and what do the regulators foresee in terms of current and new legislation? Mobile payments – what is on the Commission's agenda?•   How can financial services companies protect customers and handle security breaches?•   What measures are needed to meet the targets?•   What role will regulators play and what responsibility does the industry have?•   The US is likely to apply a more voluntary approach to notifications from the private sector.
