The Cybersecurity Guidance Manual for Financial Market Institutions

The Cybersecurity Guidance Manual for Financial Market Institutions

Cybersecurity is defined as the process of protecting information that contributes to preventing attacks by detecting and responding to them through a set of tools, policies and concepts that are used to reduce cyber risks.

Cybersecurity in general also aims to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of information and its availability for use in a timely manner.

The National Cybersecurity Authority (NCA) has issued several basic cybersecurity controls that national entities must adhere to reduce cyber risks from internal and external threats.
