What Do Cyber Threats Mean for the Financial Sector

What Do Cyber Threats Mean for the Financial Sector

And How Can You Protect Yourself?

By : Sentia

The financial industries of most countries worldwide use emerging innovative technologies to cut down operational costs, enhance customer services, and automate work. For example, organizations in the Canadian financial sector heavily depend on Fintech, the Internet of Things, quantum computing, the cloud, and artificial intelligence, among others, to enable electronic financial transactions and data transfer between payment systems, institutions, vendors, and clients.

However, while these interconnections promise increased efficiency and faster communications, they have become attractive targets in today’s highly sophisticated and rapidly evolving cyber threat landscape. For example, a cyberattack that compromises only one financial organization can potentially spread to external partners, which may ultimately disrupt critical international and national financial systems.

Unsurprisingly, motivations like financial gains from transaction values that amount to billions of dollars daily have seen the financial industry face frequent and complex cyberattacks. For instance, Canada’s population has embraced online banking transactions more and more, with 76% of Canadians preferring mobile devices and online banking for all transactions.
