Securities firms are vulnerable to cyber attacks, considering many of the trading activities are done online and in real time. Regulators in Hong Kong have tightened the requirements for securities firms and electronic trading, and the SFC has published multiple circulars to emphasise the importance of managing cybersecurity risks in electronic trading systems.
Cybersecurity continues to be a top agenda item for compliance and regulatory demands. This brochure highlights the key controls that should be considered, and how KPMG can help.
