CSA Announces Agenda for Cyber Security Roundtable

MONTREAL, Jan. 18, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) today announced additional details regarding the roundtable that it will host to further explore cyber security issues and opportunities for greater collaboration, communication and coordination in the event of a cyber security incident.

The CSA roundtable will take place Monday, February 27, 2017, on the 22nd floor of the Ontario Securities Commission's offices, located at 20 Queen Street West, Toronto, Ontario. The agenda and schedule for the roundtable can be found on the CSA's website.

The event will be structured as a discussion based on two scenarios designed to explore how participants, individually and as a group, would respond in the event of a cyber incident. The discussion will focus on coordination and information-sharing among market participants, regulatory bodies and stakeholders.

Roundtable participants have been selected to reflect a diversity of roles and views, and include marketplaces, clearing agencies, registrants, reporting issuers, regulatory bodies and cyber security experts.

Although the CSA roundtable will not be open to the public, the CSA intends to issue a summary of the themes discussed.

The roundtable follows the publication of CSA Staff Notice 11-332 Cyber Security, which identifies related issues and opportunities.

The CSA, the council of the securities regulators of Canada's provinces and territories, co-ordinates and harmonizes regulation for the Canadian capital markets.
