Research Agenda for the Banking and Finance Sector
Fin. Servs. Sector Coordinating Council for Critical Infrastructure Prot., Homeland Sec. Research and Dev. Comm. Research Agenda for the Banking and Finance Sector (2008). Web
Overview: Independent Reports
The Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council for Critical Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security (FSSCC) supports research and development initiatives to protect the physical and electronic infrastructure of the Banking and Finance Sector, and to protect its customers by enhancing the Sector’s resilience and integrity.1 The FSSCC established the Research and Development Committee (”R&D Committee”) in 2004 as a standing committee to identify priorities for research, promote development initiatives to significantly improve the resiliency of the Financial Services Sector, engage stakeholders (including academic institutions and government agencies), and coordinate these activities on behalf of the Banking and Finance Sector.2 This research agenda is intended as a “living” document and has been updated to reflect advances in technology and the changing threat environment. The R&D Committee revised the priorities paper in early 2008 by consolidating nine research and development challenges into seven, re-evaluating the priority order, and seeking input from experts in academia, government, financial services and information technology communities.
