Banking & Financial Services



In the financial sector security and risk are closely linked, the implications of a breach often have a direct and meaningful impact on the business –whether resulting in a compliance and regulatory issue, impacts on the privacy of customers, fraud or financial loss or even effects on external financial markets and confidence.

Past failures, for example in role based access management, have led to large fines, massive losses and even in some cases the collapse of organisations.

Finance is a common target of cyber attack too – phishing and online fraud are often used to attempt to gain access to bank accounts and steal identities for fraudulent purposes or to directly siphon money out of the accounts of customers.
