Cyber Information and Intelligence Sharing Initiative Launched

Europol launched the “Cyber Information and Intelligence Sharing Initiative (CIISI-EU)” together with the European Central Bank and a group of Europe’s largest and most important financial infrastructures. The aim is to protect the European financial system from cyberattacks.

The initiative of 27 February 2020 brings together central banks, clearing houses, stock exchanges, and payment system providers as well as Europol and the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) in order to share vital cybersecurity threat information. Key issues concern:

  • The ability to understand the threat;
  • The ability to provide for a collective response;

Awareness raising concerning protective measures needed to achieve a change in behaviour amongst financial institutions.
