Waking Shark II tests City banks’ cyber security

London’s financial institutions took part in cyber war games yesterday as part of an operation to test their defences.

Operation Waking Shark II tested how banks handled security breaches, both in terms of detecting threats and taking care of them.

The simulation was organised by the government, regulators, and the Bank of England and was a sequel to the original Operation Waking Shark in 2011.

The initiative, as reported in October, simulated a cyber attack on the payments and markets systems behind the nation’s financial institutions.
