The World Economic Forum has led the creation of an industry consortium focused on improving the cybersecurity of financial technology companies, as collaboration between fintechs and financial institutions grows.

The consortium’s founding members include Citigroup Inc (C.N), online lender Kabbage, the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, Zurich Insurance Group (ZURN.S) and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE.N), the companies said on Tuesday.

The group will create a framework to assess the security level of fintech companies and data aggregators, whose preparedness against hacks is seen as increasingly important to the stability of the wider financial industry, the companies said.
