Financial Sector Under Siege

Cybersecurity crime in the financial sector is as prominent as it has ever been and continues to grow.  Financial institutions are up against cyber-criminals that vary in size and complexity from individuals to nation-states.  The methods that these attackers use are increasingly damaging to organizations and are being executed against targets with impeccable timing.  Attackers will wait for an organization to launch a new program or service that has not been thoroughly vetted for security and leverage that to gain a position within the victim's environment.  As new technologies emerge and banking continues to move into the digital era, it is recommended that institutions always include security at the forefront of initiatives to ensure that all assets under their control are secure.
