NEW DELHI: To firewall securities markets from cyber threats, Sebi is looking to further beef up policy framework on this front and plans to appoint an advisor for such security and other IT initiatives.Sebi has already asked stock exchanges and other institutions to keep a constant vigil on online threats globally and take lessons to put in place necessary safeguards.The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) will appoint an advisor for cyber security and information technology , who will be responsible for strengthening its regulatory policy framework in this space, according to the latest update with the regulator.The advisor would monitor implementation of these regulatory policies across securities markets and also help enhance capacity building at Sebi and various market participants with respect to cyber security.The officer would also develop a stress testing mechanism to mitigate risks arising out of cyber attacks while a framework will be put in place for taking correctives and a prudent response in case of such an emergency at the regulator or market participants.The advisor would also observe developments in cyber technology and security space and prepare inputs for regulatory policy development. The advisor will be appointed on 'contract and part time basis' for three years.Sebi, in May, had set up a four-member panel on cyber security to suggest measures to ring fence capital markets from such attacks.Last month, the regulator said it will undertake a comprehensive review of technology and systems at all market institutions, including exchanges, to safeguard the marketplace from cyber threats and technical glitches.Sebi had held a meeting with the stock exchanges on July 28 against the backdrop of the recent case of a technical glitch at leading bourse NSE, due to which trading had to be halted for over three hours on July 10.

It reaffirms our commitment to grow the institution and meet the financial needs of newer customers,” Samit Shetty, managing director, Chaitanya, said.“This funding will be used for reaching out to several rural households, thus improving their lives," he said.Unitus Capital acted as the exclusive financial advisor for the transaction.Geneva-headquartered Symbiotics Group, an investment company that focuses on emerging, sustainable and inclusive finance, has invested about $3.75 billion in more than 300 financial institutions, spread across 70 countries.“Despite the advent of Small Finance Banks and the increased focus of banks and NBFCs on the financial inclusion space, we believe that there is still space for MFIs that are creating significant impact by offering multiple products to clients, to scale,” said Abhijit Ray, managing director, Unitus Capital.NCDs are typically seen as a better alternative method of raising capital, compared to raising debt from financial institutions, given their longer tenures and larger ticket sizes.In December last year, Muthoot Microfin, the microfinance arm of the Muthoot Pappachan Group, announced that it had raised up to Rs 165 crore through the issue of NCDs on a private placement basis.For Unitus Capital, the latest transaction follows its advisory role in Spandana Sphoorthy’s equity financing round in April earlier this year, which saw the Hyderabad-based MFI raise over $100 million from a consortium of investors, including, private equity firm Kedaara Capital and Canadian pension fund Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, and exit the corporate debt restructuring process.
