With the continued rise of a digital world and the internet, threats are increasingly shifting from the physical to the digital realm. Stealing digital money is much easier and less risky than in the physical world. Many types of attack, for example, phishing, are aimed at bank customers, but more frequently, financial institutions find themselves being the target. After all, money nowadays is barely more than a series of ones and zeroes.
Furthermore, attackers grow ever more intelligent, and the malware they employ (Advanced Persistent Threats) becomes ever more advanced. These are not the only challenges financial institutions face. The legislation and guidelines they must comply with continually increase. De Nederlandsche Bank applying enhanced surveillance, SWIFT demanding requirements for connections, Brussels introducing more privacy rules: compliance is a Herculean task!
