ECB fines Spain’s Abanca for delay in reporting cyber hack

by

FRANKFURT, Dec 16 (Reuters) – The European Central Bank said on Friday it had fined Spanish bank Abanca for its delay in reporting a cyber attack that forced it to suspend its main means of payment in 2019.

“The bank’s omission hindered the ECB’s ability to properly assess Abanca’s prudential situation and to react in a timely manner to potential threats to other banks,” the ECB said as it announced the 3.1 million euro ($3.29 million) fine.
