Md Hamid Uddin and Md Hakim Ali: Cybersecurity Risk and Banking Stability: A thematic review

Cybersecurity risk shifts the paradigm of banking stability in the global financial market but the body of literature in this field is yet at infancy stage because the researchers did not deeply study this issue before. In this paper, we conduct a thorough review of literature across different thematic areas such as (i) cybersecurity and operational costs, (ii) cybersecurity and institutional performance, (iii) cybersecurity and operational risk, and (iv) cybersecurity disclosure and governance. The review shows that financial institutions emphasize on the investment in cyber technology even though a foolproof security system is unlikely to be achievable with the adoption of leading security system. Therefore, industry practitioners have been exploring cyber risk mitigation measures beyond technological solutions, and the international and national regulatory agencies prescribe different security guidelines for the financial institutions. However, their relevance is unclear without examining the institutions that are more susceptible to cyber-crimes. The literature overall shows a consensus view that cybersecurity breach contributes to the operating risk of the financial institutions. If so, the management of cybersecurity risk could be important for banking stability because the operational failure affects institutional performance.
