The US and UK governments have announced that they will conduct a joint simulation of a financial sector cyberattack some time later this month.  The exercise is meant to test how the two governments’ regulatory bodies and financial sector companies would react to and coordinate response to a major cyberattack.

A spokesman from the UK’s Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-UK) said that US Treasury, other US regulators, Britain’s finance ministry, the Bank of England, and the two countries’ intelligence agencies are likely to take part in the exercise.  No date for the simulation has yet been announced.
