In its annual report for 2019-20, SEBI noted that cyber attacks and threats attempt to compromise the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the computer systems, networks and databases in the markets ecosystem.

Establishing a cybersecurity fusion centre or a cyber lab is part of SEBI’s three-tier structure for monitoring cybersecurity-related events in the securities markets and taking actions as deemed necessary in the interest of protection of the securities market.

The three-tier structure would strengthen the cybersecurity preparedness or resilience of the entire securities market ecosystem.

Under tier-1, a high-powered steering committee on cybersecurity chaired by a whole-time member of SEBI has been set up and a cybersecurity fusion center would be established under tier-2, the regulator said.

In the tier-3, division of technology and cybersecurity on SEBI would coordinate with the steering committee, cybersecurity lab security, and operations centers at the respective market infrastructure institutions (MIIs).

“Tier-1 and tier-3 have been set up and SEBI is in the process of setting up a SEBI cybersecurity fusion center,” according to the annual report.

Generally, cybersecurity fusion centers establish cooperation among all the teams involved in cybersecurity to minimize the impact of a security breaches through faster detection and response.

Cyber resilience is an organization’s ability to prepare and respond to a cyber attack and to continue operations during, and recover from, a cyber attack.
