As part of Carnegie’s broader FinCyber project, the “Cybersecurity and the Financial System” working paper series is designed to be a platform for thought-provoking studies and in-depth research focusing on this increasingly important nexus. Bridging the gap between the finance policy and cyber policy communities and tracks, contributors to this paper series include government officials, industry representatives, and other relevant experts in addition to work produced by Carnegie scholars. In light of the emerging and nascent nature of this field, these working papers are not expected to offer any silver bullets but to stimulate the debate, inject fresh (occasionally controversial) ideas, and offer interesting data.

Papers in this series released so far:
