Cyberattacks can threaten the stability of the financial system, so the fight against cybercrime is a pivotal task for Danmarks Nationalbank. Danmarks Nationalbank, in collaboration with the other Nordic central banks, increases its focus on the critical financial infrastructure with a new yearly cyber conference – held for the first time on 21 November.

Danmarks Nationalbank believes that cooperation and knowledge sharing are essential to fight cybercrime and enhance financial stability.

The cyberthreat is bigger than ever and the financial sector is an attractive target for criminals. Knowledge sharing is one the most effective means to counter the threat – and knowledge sharing is precisely the main purpose of the cyber conference.

"Ensuring the financial stability is a key priority for Danmarks Nationalbank. Consequently we must play an active role in increasing the cyber resilience of the central financial infrastructure. With this conference, we create a Nordic forum where we can share knowledge of how to collectively increase the operational resilience in the financial sector", says Governor Lars Rohde, Danmarks Nationalbank.

The conference builds on the initiative by Danmarks Nationalbank and the financial sector in 2016 to establish the Financial Sector Forum for Operational Resilience, FSOR. The forum's vision is that the Danish financial sector should be "best in class" in Europe to counter the threat from cybercrime.
