The Cyber Security Pillar for Banks and Financial Institutions

Cyber security is no longer an afterthought when it comes to security breaches. With the financial sector’s treasure trove of valuable data, these institutions are prime targets, accounting for 4.7% of all cyber security incidents, from phishing attacks to online banking fraud.

Our customised solutions are purpose-built to tackle the unique challenges of the banking industries, ensuring your sensitive information and systems remain secure, intact and always accessible. Serving as pillars for banks and financial institutions, our solutions provides a robust foundation to protect digital assets and uphold regulatory compliance standards.



Do these challenges sound familiar to you? 

Guarding Personal & Financial Data

Handling massive amounts of sensitive data like Social Security details, account details and transaction history, with weak security practices leaves these information vulnerable to hacking attempts. A data breach can result in financial loss for both the institution and its customers, damage to reputation, loss of customer trust and potential legal repercussions.

The attack surface expands with the introduction of new technologies and services, including online banking platforms, mobile apps, internal systems and connections to other institutions. Depending on intricate IT networks for operation with insufficient protection of network infrastructure results in data breaches and the disruption of financial systems.

Financial institutions must strike a balance between implementing robust cyber security measures and ensuring seamless accessibility to system and services for customers and employees. While robust security measures are essential, overly complex security protocols can frustrate customers and hinder their ability to access accounts and services easily. 

Maintaining compliance with data security regulations requires ongoing investments in security personnel, training and technology. Non-compliance with data security regulations can result in significant financial penalties, legal liabilities, loss of reputation and erosion of customer trust.

Institutions must maintain continuous monitoring and response capabilities to address the sophistication of cyber threats, including data breaches and Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks that poses significant risks to online services. Delayed detection of these threats can extend their impact, allowing attackers more time to exploit vulnerabilities and cause more disruption.

As hackers employ more advanced tactics, proactively identifying and responding to security flaws in systems and applications becomes increasingly challenging. Consequently, unpatched security flaws can be exploited by attackers to launch data breaches, enabling them to leverage vulnerabilities and gain complete control of critical systems.

Dependence on numerous third-party vendors for diverse services presents security risks if the financial sector’s systems are not adequately secure. Inadequate security measures can lead to the exposure of customer data from the financial institution in the event of a data breach at a third-party vendor.

Displeased employees or those with malicious intent can pose a significant security threat by stealing data or sabotaging systems. Such malicious insiders have the potential to disrupt operations and hinder the institution’s ability to function normally, resulting in lost revenue and decreased productivity.
