Exploring the Global Threat Landscape

Learn about the increasing sophistication of cyber-attacks from throughout 2018, including typical challenges and real-life attack examples such as insider attacks and ransomware attacks. This webinar will outline expectations for 2019 and what it means for the financial sector.

The financial industry, for the second year in a row, was targeted with the highest volume of security incidents and the third highest volume of cyber-attacks! The amount of data being stolen in these attacks is increasing, with European banks facing an average of 85 serious attempts to breach their cyber-security systems over 12 months and taking an average of 59 days to detect a security breach; 36% of these attacks resulted in the successful theft of data.

It is not just traditional 'hackers' targeting financial institutions; there is a drastically changing threat landscape. There are attacks via your supply chains, coming from your smart CCTV cameras or even from devices brought in from home. This webinar will provide examples of the changing threat landscape and how the financial industry is under attack. Learn how technology - especially machine learning and 'narrow AI' is helping other financial organizations to identify threats and defeat them before any damage is done.
