By now, most states have or are in the process of establishing or adopting detailed cybersecurity regulations for financial institutions that contain language requiring financial institutions to:
Strict cybersecurity regulations from regulators, a myriad of third-party relationships and extensive customer data all combine to make cybersecurity a complex issue for financial institutions.
Financial institutions are increasingly dependent on information technology and telecommunications to deliver services to consumers and businesses every day. Disruption, degradation, or unauthorized alteration of information and systems that support these services through cyberattacks can affect operations, core processes, and undermine confidence in the nation's financial services sector. Additionally, financial institutions are privy to a large amount of information about their customers. They can have social security numbers, birthdates, email addresses, and other information that hackers would love to get their hands on in order to obtain funds from the account or set up new accounts for their own benefit. Most successful hacking attacks on financial institutions come through unsuspecting employees clicking on something they shouldn’t. Not only could your customer data be stolen, entire systems could be frozen and held for ransom. The costs of ransomware include business disruption, data loss, lost productivity and reputation damage and disaster recovery.
