The digitalization of financial services has brought new challenges, with customers increasingly starting to make financial transactions using their smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops. Each of these customer endpoints represents an opportunity for hackers to breach a bank's network and compromise its operations.


Cyberattacks on the rise

Since banks and other financial institutions do not have the option of going back to the old way of doing business, they have little options other than to develop their cybersecurity strategies.
