Cyber Security for Financial Services

62% of exposed data in 2019 was Financial Services data. How vulnerable is your business and its data?

The number of data breaches that financial services companies suffer continues to grow year-over-year as hackers zero in on the lucrative industry. 

Cyber-attacks continue to increase by volume and scale, with financial services institutions like banks, lenders, insurance providers and payment processors being targeted.

Working with a wide range of financial institutions, we've seen each presenting their own unique challenges.

We adapt our approach to fit the client and work closely to bring them on a journey of maturity while ensuring the security outcomes they require throughout.

Cyber Challenges Facing Financial Services

The number of data breaches that financial services companies suffer continues to grow year-over-year as hackers zero in on the lucrative industry. 

We have years of experience contributing to and thriving in financial services organisations, which by their very nature are advanced,  challenging and heavily regulated cyber security environments. 

We have noticed that many of our financial services clients share the same common challenges which we assist with: 

  • Managing audit driven decision making
  • Centralising functions, automating and futureproofing their security systems
  • Maintaining compliance with regulations
  • Adapting to emerging modern banking technologies
  • Managing legacy environments
  • Ensuring full utilisation of toolsets
  • Become more agile and more efficient in security operations
  • Migration to the cloud securely while managing on premise servers
  • Keeping competitive with challenger banks
  • Managing third party/supplier governance and risk
  • Limited resourcing and skills
