On February 14, we brought together leading experts from the cybersecurity sector at a round table organized in conjunction with El Español to discuss cybersecurity in the financial sector in the face of a new regulatory framework.
Alfredo Díez Fernández, COO of Cipherbit-Grupo Oesía, Maria Vidal, Partner of finReg360, Gustavo Lozano García, CISO of ING in Spain and Portugal, Gonzalo Asensio Asensio, Global CISO of Bankinter, Carles Solé, CISO of Santander Spain, and Juan Francisco Losa, CISO / Director of Security of BBVA in Spain, sat down to exchange perspectives on the new digital resilience regulations for financial institutions in the European Union (DORA).
The new regulation will succeed in unifying the multiple ICT risk management rules that exist in Europe, replacing them with a single approach that will make it possible to respond to cyber threats affecting the financial sector more quickly and efficiently.
The experts placed special emphasis on the importance of sharing threat information in a systematic manner and the need for authorities to take a more active role in coordinating and consolidating this information.
The value of DORA in fostering a transparent relationship between clients and institutions was also highlighted, since, as stipulated in the recent regulation, in the event of serious cybersecurity incidents or those that could have a financial impact, they must inform them and notify the relevant authorities.
“The financial sector is a sector that is used to intense regulation and this standard aims to bring together all mandatory regulations and, at least in terms of cybersecurity and operational resilience, that obligations are unified. I think this is an opportunity and that is the key,” said Alfredo Díez.
