Cyber Warfare Simulation Launched by UK Banks and Financials

Around 20 British banks and financial firms will undergo a major round of cyber warfare simulations in a bid to test their resilience against hacking attacks.

The Bank of England (BoE) is set to oversee the exercise, like it has done before, say media reports.

The Financial Times said that Andrew Gracie, director of the UK’s special resolution unit within the BoE, will oversee the operation to test the resilience of Britain’s biggest financials to cyber-attacks.
