Author Name: Mark Graff, Chief Information Security Officer, NASDAQ OMX
In March 2014, the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) established a new Cyber Security Working Group. (Members call it "GLEX", for GLobal EXchange security.)
GLEX's mission is to aid in the protection of the global capital markets. The Founding Committee included representation from over a dozen exchanges across the globe, and current membership stands at about two dozen. Any WFE member in good standing is eligible, and there is no cost beyond that of WFE membership itself.
