Financial market infrastructures (FMIs) play a crucial role in the maintenance of stability in national and international financial systems. This is why they build redundant capacity, disperse their people and facilities, and replicate data in real-time. But they are not invulnerable, and the rise of cyber-attacks has added a new dimension to a longstanding range of physical threats FMIs face. Could pooling knowledge, experience and intelligence across industries help manage crises more effectively when they occur? In this session, experts from a range of industries will share their experience of how to plan for, manage, take decision and mitigate the effects of a crisis, with a view to drawing up a list of best practices critical infrastructures can follow.
