Reserve Bank of India (RBI)

The Reserve Bank of India has issued guidance on third party risks, information and cyber security.
The Reserve Bank of India (“RBI”) notified the Master Direction on Outsourcing of Information Technology Services (“Master Directions”) on April 10, 2023. These Master Directions are released subsequent to receiving public comments on the RBI’s draft of the Master Directions.
The Master Directions intend to regulate the outsourcing of information technology (“IT”) services by banks, non- banking financial companies (“NBFCs”), primary cooperative banks, EXIM Bank, National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development, National Bank for Financing Infrastructure and Development, National Housing Bank, Small Industries Development Bank of India Credit Information Companies, etc (collectively, “RE”).
REs typically outsource a substantial portion of their IT and IT enabled services to third party service providers. Such dependency on third parties exposes REs to significant risks as the autonomy of its IT systems could be compromised and thereby their operational integrity could be threatened. RBI has also ramped up its checks on the soundness of cyber security practices of various institutions in the ecosystem.

Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) – Effective IT Risk Management (Canada)

This guidance is applicable to all entities and individuals regulated by FSRA. The guidance describes practices and desired outcomes for regulated entities and individuals, but does not prescribe how to achieve them. This principles-based approach offers regulated entities and individuals the flexibility to achieve the outcomes in a manner that is suitable for the size and nature of their business.
FSRA defines “IT risk” as the risk of financial loss, operational disruption or damage, or reputational loss resulting from the inadequacy, disruption, destruction, failure, or damage by any means to a regulated entity or individual’s IT systems, infrastructure, and data.
IT risk can be external or internal to a regulated entity or individual. IT risk encompasses, but is not limited to, cyber risk. While cyber risk specifically relates to deliberate or accidental breaches of security (e.g., a data breach), IT risk also includes any risk extending from the use of IT (e.g., aging digital infrastructure).
IT risk represents a significant and growing threat to the business, operations and stability of FSRA’s regulated sectors, and can result in negative impacts to consumers. This can disrupt confidence in the financial services and pension sectors.

Personal Information And Electronic Documents Act (Canada)

The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) is a Canadian federal privacy law that governs the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information by private sector organizations. Here is a summary of key aspects of PIPEDA:

Purpose: PIPEDA aims to balance the right to privacy of individuals with the need of organizations to collect, use, or disclose personal information for legitimate purposes.

Scope: PIPEDA applies to private sector organizations engaged in commercial activities across Canada, with some exceptions for provinces that have their own substantially similar privacy laws (e.g., Quebec).

PIPEDA establishes rules and principles to govern the handling of personal information by private sector organizations in Canada, with a strong emphasis on obtaining consent, safeguarding data, and providing individuals with the right to access and control their personal information. It is an essential piece of legislation to protect the privacy rights of Canadian citizens.
