Bank of England tests the ability of the financial sector to withstand cyber attacks

Bank of England said on Friday it will examine the financial sector's ability to resist a major cyber-attack.

The test will be conducted in conjunction with the Treasury and the Financial Ethics Commission for a one-day period on 9 November, the Bank of England said.

"This test will help authorities and companies identify improvements in our collective action and improve the ability of the entire sector to resist," the Bank of England said in a statement.
