Credible. Expert. Robust. Discover the depth and breadth of our financial services cyber security support
The financial services sector in the UK faces numerous substantial cyber security challenges that require constant vigilance and expertise to address.
One of the most pressing issues is the evolving nature of threats. Cyber criminals continually employ sophisticated techniques, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, to exploit vulnerabilities in financial systems, making it difficult for traditional defence mechanisms to keep pace. Just over 10% of UK businesses reported attempts to hack online bank accounts in 2022.
The increasing use of digital banking services and mobile applications has also expanded the attack surface, providing more opportunities for cybercriminals to launch phishing attacks, identity thefts, and data breaches.
