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 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 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Enforced from May 2018, the GDPR sets strict data security standards, requiring organisations to protect personal data and report breaches to the relevant authority within 72 hours.
By helping financial services organisations to understand and address gaps in their cyber security as well as proactively detect and remediate threats when they occur, Redscan’s affordable managed cyber security services support quick, hassle-free GDPR compliance.
