The meeting builds on work led by the G7 Cyber Expert Group, a group of cyber security experts who identify and propose ways to ensure the financial sector is resilient to cyber threats. The group was established in 2015 and is comprised of G7 finance ministries, central banks and other suitable financial authorities such as the Financial Conduct Authority.
