  • Financial services companies, which include banks, credit unions, investment firms and insurance companies, are in the business of managing money. Their fundamental connection to wealth and the global economic system as a whole make them a high-value target for cyberattackers.

Overview

  • The finance industry consistently is on the frontlines of the threat battleground. While companies that populate this sector typically are advanced in their security and compliance postures compared to other verticals, they still face significant risks from a range of threat adversaries, including financially motivated hackers, state-sponsored intruders, hacktivists and malicious or unsuspecting insiders.

    A recent survey from PricewaterhouseCoopers found that cybercrime is the second largest cause of economic crime (after asset misappropriation) facing financial services companies. The study also learned that cybercrime was responsible for 38 percent of the economic crime incidents facing finance companies, more than double the percentage for other industries.
