About this paper
The rise of the information society has provided a wealth of opportunities for organizations to enhance services to save time, money and effort. But there is a darker side. Cybercriminals are finding new ways to exploit weaknesses and working to develop more sophisticated attacks – or finding high-tech reinventions of old tricks. The cost to consumers and to society is growing while a lack of international cooperation allows these crimes to multiply. Though cybercrime transcends industries, financial institutions often lead the way because they are often first to experience new threats. Based on a survey of 250 banking executives, along with in-depth expert interviews, this report looks at cyber security challenges and opportunities as they relate to banks.
