Managing Cyber Risks to Protect Financial Stability

October 10, 2018 - 4:00 pm

1030 15th Street Northwest, 12th Floor
Washington, DC
Despite growing investment in research and the dependence of financial institutions, consumers, and governments on cyber technologies, the threat of cyber risks to financial stability is not well understood or managed. Furthermore, interactions between the financial contagion channels and the technological and operational risk channels of cyber-attacks have not been examined carefully. How do cyber risks differ from traditional financial shocks? In contrast to the financial and policy shocks that have triggered past financial panics, cyber-attacks are generally designed and initiated by adversaries in aggressive pursuit of specific malicious goals. If one of those goals is broad financial system instability, a cyber-attack may pose unique challenges. Understanding the ways in which cyber-specific risks interact with traditional financial stability vulnerabilities is key.

Join us as we convene key stakeholders from the security, financial, governmental and academic communities for this discussion.
