HONG KONG Oct 13 Hong Kong's securities
regulator is reviewing brokers' internet and mobile trading
systems to see how resilient they are to cyber attacks after
some customer accounts were breached, it said on Thursday.
The Securities and Futures Commission said some 16 incidents
involving in excess of $100 million unauthorized trades have
been reported over the past 12 months and those cases were being
investigated by police.
It said brokers should review and enhance their controls to
combat cyber attacks and alert clients to suspicious activities
to stop further unauthorized trading.
