Financial institutions and insurance companies are constantly under attack by cybercriminals and thieves around the world. As a result, these organizations must put information security at the top of their priorities to mitigate their risk of an attack. While these organizations are heavily regulated and have advanced security measures in place, cybercriminals are upping the ante in their methods of attack:

  • Financial institutions face attacks from hacktivist organizations, nation states, and insiders
  • According to the Ponemon Institute, the average cost per record of a data breach is $264
  • The average total cost of a data breach is $7.01M
