Cyber Security Challenges – Finance 2015-2016

Cyber security is becoming an ever-growing problem within the financial services industry. According to ‘cyber security ranks as the number one concern for nearly half of financial institutions.’

Given this information, it’s understandable that more and more businesses in the financial sector are looking to implement solutions that aim to protect and combat any cyber security threats.

Why Do I Need to Worry About Cyber Security?

Of course, there are certain risks involved in not having a reliable form of cyber security protection. Understandably, financial security threats can result in financial losses – in fact, in the UK financial fraud is the number one primary goal of cyber criminals.

It’s also the primary motivator in several other countries including Hong Kong, the U.S. and Germany. The most frequented cost of a successful cyber attack in the UK is between $100,001 and $200,000 USD.

How Can I Protect Against Cyber Attacks?

Having a robust and well maintained IT infrastructure is one step any organisation needs to take to minimise vulnerability to cyber attacks.

Our guide  (together with infographic) shows the seven steps you can take to ensure you leave nothing to chance.
