Regulatory approaches toward cyber security should be implemented more consistently, according to a senior official from the International Monetary Fund.

David Lipton, the IMF’s first deputy managing director, noted in a blog post that one of the core issues with current frameworks was the sheer number of approaches to the issue.

“Today, countries have different standards, regulations and terminology. Reducing this inconsistency will facilitate more communication,” he wrote.
