Typical form of an agreement on the interaction of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation on countering computer attacks

Guidelines for the Advancement of Information Security in the Financial Sector for 2019–2021

Our primary goal is to:

establish a competence center for the purposes of the exchange of information between the Bank of Russia, banks and non-bank financial institutions (NBFIs), integrator companies, anti-virus software vendors and communications service providers and operators, and specifically for law enforcement and other public authorities overseeing cyber security across the industry. The exchange of information is intended to coordinate the efforts to prevent and deter the activities of perpetrators seeking personal enrichment by means of unauthorized access to the IT infrastructure of organizations supervised by the Bank of Russia, as well as through payment technology vulnerabilities.

Therefore, the objectives are to:

  • organize and coordinate the exchange of information between the FinCERT, law enforcement authorities, banks and NBFIs;
  • analyze data about cyber-attacks on banks and NBFIs and prepare analytics;
  • issue information protection guidelines for the safe transfer of funds.

Exchange of Information

Any legal entity may participate in the exchange of information provided that it:

  • engages in financial activities and is duly registered with the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (holds a relevant licence)
  • is a software and hardware vendor providing information protection solutions;

  • engages in other information protection activities, primarily in the credit and finance area.

Your participation is voluntary. If you are willing to participate in the exchange of information, please complete the Member Form and send your request marked ‘Exchange of Information’ at
