Cyber-attacks are putting the stability of the global financial system in jeopardy. While most financial institutions have cyber security and business continuity strategy in place, highly sophisticated attacks could potentially propagate to other connected environments, including those in the backup and DR site. 

To address this growing concern, HKMA and HKAB developed the Secure Tertiary Data Backup (STDB) Guideline that is tailored for banks in Hong Kong to enhance data resilience and cyber security. With more banks started their assessment of STDB, we are inviting PwC, the lead consulting firm that designed the guideline, and other technology experts to share their insights to plan, build and run STDB at ease. 

How to design and measure the result of STDB? What are the additional solutions to meet the guideline? How to continuously operate these solutions to withstand and recover from further attacks? Join us in this webinar and find out the answers to all these questions.





To address the growing concern of cyber risks and in line with other international financial markets, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) has invited the Hong Kong Association of Banks (HKAB) to develop the Secure Tertiary Data Backup (STDB) Guideline tailored to the Hong Kong banking environment. STDB is deemed as an effective measure by the HKMA for enhancing cyber resilience and data security of Authorised Institutions (AIs) in Hong Kong. By 30 November 2021, all retail banks and foreign bank branches with significant operations in Hong Kong are required to submit to the HKMA a report summarising the outcome of their assessment.
