AISHU Released Response Manual for Secure Tertiary Data Backup (STDB) Guideline

2024-06-24
In light of rapidly evolving financial landscape and emerging cyber risks, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) invited the Hong Kong Association of Banks (HKAB) to issue the Security Tertiary Data Backup (STDB) Guideline in April 2021 to ensure the financial industry's resilience and data integrity.

The STDB Guideline encompasses 8 security principles, divided into Governance, Design and Data Restoration, and 9 characteristics that financial institutions in Hong Kong should consider implementing to strengthen their controls to ensure business continuity. These guidelines will help banks recover and restore critical data to promptly resume key functions, services, and systems in the event of a disruptive cyberattack, such as a ransomware attack.

As the industry standards for data protection, portability, recovery, and continuity of critical services in the banking sector, the STDB Guideline provides guidance on the factors banks need to consider when deciding whether to establish STDB and the implementation issues that need to be addressed to ensure the effectiveness of STDB. The HKMA regards STDB as an effective measure to enhance the cyber resilience and data security of Hong Kong's authorized institutions (AIs).

AISHU AnyBackup, a leading data backup and recovery solution, is at the forefront of helping financial institutions meet these stringent requirements. We hosted a webinar that delved into the specifics of the HKMA's STDB guidelines and demonstrated how AnyBackup's advanced features and robust architecture ensure full compliance.

In conjunction with the webinar, we released our comprehensive Response Manual. This manual is designed to provide financial institutions with a step-by-step guide to achieving and maintaining compliance with HKMA's STDB Guideline using AnyBackup. The manual includes:

- The need for assessing operational status against the STDB Guideline
- How AnyBackup empowers authorized institutions to fulfil the nine characteristics of STDB
- AISHU AnyBackup Solution corresponding to the STDB Guideline
