FS-ISAC, the member-driven, not-for-profit organization that advances cyber security and resilience in the global financial system, has announced the formation of its UK Strategic Subsidiary Board.
The Board will deepen FS-ISAC’s work in the United Kingdom, strengthening the operational resilience of the financial sector against evolving cyber threats, increasing intelligence sharing and incident response coordination.
Burim Bivolaku, Business Information Security Officer (Trading & Clearing), Intercontinental Exchange, will serve as the Board’s Chair.
The Board will deepen FS-ISAC’s partnerships with the public and private sectors. FS-ISAC is a trusted intelligence partner in the sector and will work with other key players to raise awareness of and build resilience against evolving cyber risks.
As the ongoing digitisation of the financial industry continues, the sector is seeing a corresponding growth in threats coming from their supply chain. To counteract this rising risk, the Board will focus on expanding FS-ISAC’s work with the global software infrastructure, such as cloud service providers, as part of FS-ISAC’s Critical Providers Programme.
