Cyber Security

Ensuring the security of systems and data is a key priority for financial services organisations, for whom data and trust are business critical assets.

Security is a Process, not a Product

From phishing and domain cloning, denial of service and credential stuffing, to ransomware and social engineering – threats evolve and attacks grow ever more sophisticated. What was good practice a year or two ago may now be barely sufficient and could soon become inadequate.

Implementing even the best security product is not enough. To stay secure, you need to keep up-to-date with the latest developments and manage security risks as they evolve.

 

Phishing attacks are on the increase, with a dramatic rise in volumes during the pandemic. Financial Services organisations are a particular target. 

The cost of poor security is huge: cybercrime losses are now running at $5tn globally – with ransomware alone costing over $15bn.

We can help you plan, design and deliver security solutions to support your Digital Transformation and ensure your systems and data are protected.

How Safe Is Your Password? 80% of attacks use stolen or guessed credentials – 20 million attacks per day. How can we defend against these attacks? Principal Consultant Misha Dorman explains the threats and provides practical guidance, both for users and for organisations and implementors.

“86% of breaches are financially motivated. Are your systems - and your customers' data - safe?”
