Please complete the required fields.

The Commission is today publishing Cyber Security Rules and Guidance under The Protection of Investors (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 1987; The Banking Supervision (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 1994; The Regulation of Fiduciaries, Administration Businesses and Company Directors, etc (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2000; The Insurance Business (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2002 and The Insurance Managers and Insurance Intermediaries (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2002 which will ensure that the Bailiwick’s regulatory regime continues to be compliant with international standards and appropriate for the Guernsey market.

The new Cyber Security Rules and Guidance have been created following extensive engagement with industry over the last two years and have been designed to be principles based allowing for application across the Bailiwick’s diverse finance sector.  They replace our existing Cyber Security Guidance. 

The Cyber Security Rules come into operation immediately however transitional arrangements within the Rules allow firms to implement changes to their internal controls to ensure compliance with the Rules by 9th August 2021.

The Commission would also recommend continued attention to the guidance issued by the National Cyber Security Centre – NCSC.GOV.UK
