Background

As you may know, to further strengthen the cyber resilience of the banking sector in Hong Kong, the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) announced the launch of a Cybersecurity Fortification Initiative (CFI) on 18 May 2016.  The CFI comprises three key components, covering a cyber risk and resilience assessment framework (C-RAF), a cybersecurity professional development programme (PDP), and a cyber intelligence information sharing platform. 

The effective implementation ofthe C-RAF would require the assessment and testing services of qualified and experienced cybersecurity professional.  Enclosed with this letter is a consultation draft for determining the required qualification and experience for the PDP. It would assist us in processing your comments if they are provided as responses along those questions if possible. 

HKMA value the comments of the industry participants and stakeholders. Interested parties should send in their written comments to the HKMA by 31 August 2016.  The address is as follows:
Fintech Facilitation Office
