Requiring entities in the Romanian financial ecosystem to perform cyber resilience tests
The European Central Bank (ECB) and the other central banks in the European Union (EU) have drawn up the TIBER-EU (Threat Intelligence-based Ethical Red Teaming) Framework. On the 3rd of May 2022, the National Bank of Romania issued the Regulation no. 6/2022 regarding TIBER-RO, the framework for conducting cyber resilience tests, which was also published in the Official Gazette no. 432/03.05.2022.
What banks can do now
Boards and executives with responsibilities for cyber and IT in banks will need to plan this type of exercises in order to improve the cyber-resistance. Therefore, it is crucial for them to discuss their emerging concerns and better understand how their bank’s cyber risk management practices can strike an equilibrium between commercial priorities and a supervisory view of good practice.
