Financial institutions hold vast quantities of high value information, including client data, banking records, proprietary research and trading algorithms, which is at constant risk of being compromised.
In the face of growing threats, and under pressure from regulators, trading partners and customers, it is vital that organisations such as banks, hedge funds, wealth management firms and private equity houses make the right security investments to ensure that this data is fully protected.
Common cyber security challenges in the financial services sector include:
• Defending growing and increasingly fragmented network infrastructure
• Integrating new technologies alongside legacy systems
• Balancing system accessibility with security
• Minimising the financial and reputational damage of breaches
• Achieving compliance with the GDPR, SWIFT CSP and FCA regulations

Redscan is well placed to help financial institutions tackle the complex challenge of achieving compliance with FCA, BoE and SWIFT CSP requirements on cyber security, the GDPR, DPA 2018 and other data security requirements.
