Top Cyber Security Threats Banks Face
Some of the most common cybersecurity threats banks face include:
Phishing attacks use deceptive emails, websites, or messages to trick users into revealing sensitive information or installing malware. Banks must implement robust security measures and employee training to counter these threats.
Ransomware attacks encrypt a bank’s data and demand payment for its release. Banks can mitigate the risk of ransomware by implementing strong endpoint security and regularly backing up critical data.
As banks increasingly adopt cloud-based services, they must ensure proper security measures to protect sensitive data stored in the cloud. This includes strong access controls, encryption, and continuous monitoring.
Supply Chain Threats
Supply chain attacks target vulnerabilities in a bank’s third-party vendors or suppliers to gain access to the bank’s network. Banks must implement strong vendor risk management programs and continuously monitor their supply chain to mitigate these risks.
