HM Treasury works closely with the other Financial Authorities (the Bank of England, Prudential Regulation Authority, and the Financial Conduct Authority), Intelligence Agencies and Law Enforcement to understand the range of threats posed to finance sector organisations and to ensure that the system is robust to a wide range of operational risks, including cyber.

The Financial Authorities also work together to assess, test and improve the operational resilience, including the cyber resilience, of the finance sector.

The UK's Financial Authorities have well-established mechanisms for responding to operational disruption were it to occur, including providing the support of the National Cyber Security Centre where necessary.
