ICT Cybercrime

Although financial organisations are increasingly being targeted by cybercrime, their information security provisions are often inadequate. DNB therefore feels it is high time to bring these provisions up to the required level.
 
Are your organisation’s information security provisions up to scratch? You can carry out your own self-assessment using a specially developed tool provided by DNB. This tool enables you to assess your organisation’s level of information security. You can then decide whether you need to take improvement measures.

Cybercrime

Based on recent research, DNB has established that most of the financial organisations surveyed had not brought their information security provisions up to the level required by the central bank.

At the same time, financial organisations and their customers are increasingly being targeted by cybercrime. The number of incidents is growing, along with the associated impact and financial losses. This could ultimately erode confidence in the financial sector.

Adequate information security

An adequate level of information security is essential for your organisation. It reduces the risk that cybercriminals can mount a successful attack on your bank and its customers.
 
Information security is one of the theme-based studies that the regulator will be continuing this year. Using this study as input, the regulator would like to discuss the management of your IT risks with you. Where necessary, it will expect you to take measures in the short term to bring your level of security up to the required standard. 
During the fourth quarter, DNB will be organising a seminar to present the results of the themed study.
