Redscan for Financial Services

Financial institutions hold vast quantities of high value digital information which is constantly under threat from cyber attack. In the face of this threat, it is vital that they make the right security investments.

Redscan's cyber security for financial services allow organisations, including banks and asset managers, to gain a comprehensive understanding of the threats facing their business, the steps needed to improve their security posture and the actions they must take in the event of a breach.

Your challenges

High-value information

Banks, hedge funds, alternative investment, wealth management, corporate finance, and private equity firms hold high value digital information. This can include client data, banking records, proprietary research, transaction information, trading algorithms, and trading strategies. Corporate finance firms also share market sensitive data with business partners during merger and acquisition transactions.

A constant threat

This valuable information is under threat from cyber criminals and hacktivists, who are increasingly targeted and well-funded. A successful attack can ruin a firm’s reputation, cause financial losses, compromise intellectual property, and result in legal action. Financial services cyber security must be robust and advanced to avoid these scenarios.

A growing concern

Many financial firms are not suitably prepared to deal with the fast evolving nature of modern cyber-attacks. Their attack surface has grown through the increased use of mobile devices, cloud services, web services and IT infrastructure outsourcing agreements. And although many firms implement traditional IT security defences that include firewalls, next generation firewalls, intrusion prevention, anti-virus and anti-spam – today’s attackers are able to easily evade these systems.

External pressures

There is also increased pressure from investors, trading partners and regulators for firms to improve financial services cyber security policies and implement proven information security risk management practices that include incident response plans.
