The first, second and third lines of defence are identified by the Bank of England in relation to establishing and defending fair and effective markets.

These 'lines of defence' are the governance and controls to protect against risks in an organisation.

The second line of defence is an independent oversight function - commonly the risk functions monitoring each key risk category.
