Exclusive: UK banks ordered to review cyber security after SWIFT heist | Reuters

LONDON The Bank of England ordered UK banks to detail steps taken to secure computers connected to the SWIFT bank messaging network about two months after a still-unidentified group used the system to steal $81 million from Bank Bangladesh, according to three people familiar with the effort. The central bank sent the request to update cyber security measures to all banks it regulates in mid-to-late April, according to these people, who were not authorized to discuss the confidential communications. The previously unreported action marks the earliest known case of a central bank in a major economy to order its member banks to conduct a formal security review in response to the Bangladesh theft, which has shaken the global system for transferring money among both commercial and central banks.  The Bank of England, one of the G10 central banks that oversee Brussels-based SWIFT, said it had no immediate comment. #United States #Bangladesh #United Kingdom #Hong Kong #article
