The Risks Posed by Cyberattacks in Financial Services

Financial Services organizations are exposed more than ever. According to Kroll Security’s Q4 Threat Landscape Report, 13% of all cyberattacks target these organizations, including Ransomware and Business Email Compromise (BEC). 

Despite these increasing numbers, cybersecurity in financial services is also a cause for concern because of the connectivity between institutions. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York says that one attack at a central bank in the US could affect as many as 38% of the entire banking system

Combining that with the stats we already know, like 91% of data breaches starting with a phishing email, or 52% of security breaches coming from human error, Financial Services organizations cannot overlook human risk in their security assessment. 

According to the Boston Consulting Group, financial services institutions are 300 times more likely to suffer a cyberattack.
