Cyber Security in Financial Services

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

GDPR compliance for Financial Services

Redscan is well placed to help financial institutions tackle the complex challenge of achieving compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

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.
