Re: NIST analog?
@REISEN: Conversely, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework -- like any framework -- is not exactly perfect, and has its own weaknesses. At least it's something to get started with, however.

Re: NIST analog?
Of more significance is that backup and restoration plans ARE PART of normal IT functionality and business purpose.  The data centers do not operate in a run-only vacuum.  There have to be plans to reconstruct and rebuild in any event, whether ransomware or hurricane, flood, loss of power, etc.  That it must be mandated by law is insane!  Good yes, but OMG this is It 101 basics folks!!!

NIST analog?
On the surface, this sounds like pretty basic stuff already covered under the NIST Cybersecurity Framework in the US -- which effectively acts as "pseudo-law" for financial institutions in the US. Seems like the only financial institutions in the UK that might have issue are those that have not crossed the pond -- and, even then, given the dramatic increase in collaboration on security matters throughout the finance sector over the past few years, this should not be too terribly burdensome, I suspect.
