Cybersecurity is a key issue for investment firms and for IIROC. As noted in our Annual Compliance Report for 2014/2015, the proactive management of cyber-risk is critical to the stability of IIROC-regulated firms, the integrity of capital markets, and the protection of investors.
IIROC is committed to developing resources to help firms strengthen risk-management practices and increase cybersecurity preparedness, including important tools that provide a risk-based framework of industry standards and best practices, and help firms prepare effective response plans for cyber threats and attacks.
