Membership consists of country representatives coming from the financial sector, national CERT's (GovCerts) and Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA’s). Other organisations represented are: ENISA, Europol, the European Central Bank (ECB), the European Payments Council (EPC) and the European Commission. The European FI-ISAC is actively supported by ENISA.
The mission of the European FI-ISAC is information exchange on e- and m-channel, cards, central systems and all ICT related topics including:
- Cyber-criminal activity affecting the financial community
- Vulnerabilities, technology trends and threats
- Incidents and case-studies
This information exchange helps each member and the banks in its member state, to raise awareness on potentials risks, and provides an early warning on new threats and MO's.
The members share information by:
- Meeting twice per year (hosted by members, in different European cities)
- Forwarding continuously relevant information via the EU FI-ISAC list server
- Direct individual communication between member organizations/individuals
Trusted relationships are the key to successful co-operation and exchange between members. Members represent their country and should actively participate in the information exchange. Members cannot send non-members as substitutes in a meeting.
Members of the European FI-ISAC must sign the Traffic Light Protocol (TLP). The TLP is an agreement to ensure that sensitive information is shared according to requirements defined by the source individual/organisation.
The European FI-ISAC has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Europol EC3. The MoU has been signed on March 18th at Europol in The Hague. The MoU shows the mutual interest for co-operation between the European FI-ISAC and EC3, a step to improve co-operation between the European banking community and European Law Enforcement Agencies.
