Retail banks: securing for the future


Cyber security is synonymous with banking right now. In the face of tighter budgets and reduced spending across all sectors of business, security is the one area where financial services organisations are spending big – ‘unlimited budget’ big – in some cases.

As the scope and nature of security threats increases, crime-as-a-service is the latest trend threatening the banking industry. It gives even the most amateur criminals the tools to commit cyberattacks on a massive scale, with minimal or no expertise required.

What does this mean for security managers? And how can they combat the rise of disruptive forces such as crime-in-a-box? For starters, working with one provider to implement a joined up and centralised approach can help to better coordinate your security systems.

Third-party cloud providers are increasingly being used to help manage security, with BT Ark data centre services being one such solution. Designed to meet the increasing demand from large UK-based organisations it offers sustainable, secure and compliant cloud-based services.

And as branches increasingly act as advisory centres and become more customer-centric, securing your physical assets is just as important as dealing with the ever-present risks in the digital world.
