The malicious use of information and communication technologies poses a risk to financial systems and could endanger financial stability. Carnegie’s Cyber Policy Initiative held the launch event of the Carnegie white paper “Toward a Global Norm Against Manipulating the Integrity of Financial Data.” Building on the March 18, 2017 communiqué of the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors, this Carnegie publication proposes that, as a next step, the G20 should commit not to manipulate the integrity of data and algorithms of financial institutions and to cooperate when such manipulations occur.

This event and panel discussion explored the implications of this proposal and the path forward should it be adopted. Michael Chertoff gave opening remarks, followed by an in-depth discussion panel featuring Greg Rattray, Siobhan MacDermott, and Tim Maurer, the report’s lead author. Duncan Hollis moderated.
