Resilient cyber security for finance
Our reliance on digital technology continues to grow and with it so does our access to a vast digital landscape. Despite the many benefits of access to these digital spaces, cybercrime continues to be a real issue, becoming ever more sophisticated and targeted for ultimate exploitation opportunities. The stakes are particularly high for businesses that are responsible for the handling of private financial data, with not only large amounts of money at risk but a knock-on effect on the economy too.
Widely known hacks in the financial sector include that of the Central Bank of Bangladesh and the exploitation of vulnerabilities in SWIFT resulting in the loss of over $101 million - a real wake-up call to the financial sector that cybercrime should be taken seriously.
