Technology is transforming how we interact with one another, solve complex issues and carry out everyday tasks. It has revolutionized the financial services industry too in the way consumers expect to access, use and manage their money. To stay competitive, financial institutions have had to resort to the extensive use of technology which, by its very nature, has consequently introduced security risks.
Hardly a single day goes by without a cyber security related incident, resulting in either a security breach, loss of sensitive data or a regulatory fine, the cost of which is in the billions of pounds yearly to the global economy. This has led the FCA to highlight cyber crime as a key risk to firms and to retain it as one of its current priorities.
