Over the last decade, cyberattacks have been among the biggest threats to financial institutions. Advances in technology have honed cybercriminals’ skills and techniques. They’ve also become more organized, forming groups that make it difficult for financial service providers to manage cybercrime risk. Losses from cybercrime are substantial in the financial sector, ranging from litigation to having to refund customers, from the cost of preventing another attack and, of course, a dent in the institution’s reputation. Banks are the most targeted financial institution because of the high value of customer deposits, the wealth of data they sit on, and their reliance on vulnerable digital and technology solutions.
