Cyber & Information Resilience

Our Cyber and Information Resilience division have an important job to do. Cyber security is one of the biggest threats to commerce and society alike. Companies everywhere are experiencing a growing threat of cyber-attacks from nation states, organised crime groups, malicious insiders and activists, with the level of sophistication of attack accelerating year on year. The FCA is not immune to this risk and, as a key member of the UK’s financial services sector, we could become a target of interest for those intent on undermining confidence in the UK financial sector. 

Applications for our 2019 Cyber & Information Resilience programme are now open. Please click here to apply. Applications for this programme will close on 2 December 2018 and the assessment centre will take place on 9 January.
