Cyber risks cannot only impact a financial institution’s bottom line but cyber-crime in financial services can have broad reaching impact ranging from individuals to global financial markets
Companies in the financial services sector possess highly sensitive data, and therefore cyber-attackers typically consider the time, effort and risk of attacking them to be well worth the potential reward.
Cyber attackers are becoming more powerful and abundant, leveraging their ability to stay small and wield the powers of distraction and destruction. Some of the top challenges in financial services are threats that are initiated from other nation states. This along with the ever-increasing cost of failure and tightening regulatory requirements creates quite a security challenge. It is essential that financial services network security managers be proactive with respect to their risk mitigation strategies.
Schools ranging from K-12 through the college/university level are increasingly becoming bigger targets for hackers. There’s an abundance of data routinely collected on students and stored on their servers, from attendance records to medical and financial records.
With an abundance of information that is coveted by cyber criminals, school systems and institutions of higher learning are increasingly becoming more
popular targets for cybercrime.
One single institution may contain information ranging from Social Security numbers, financial and medical records to intellectual property, depending on the type of work being done there.
Schools and higher education are also at risk because networks have traditionally been open, in the spirit of knowledge sharing. The inherent nature of a young,
mobile and technology enabled student body compounds those risks.
With schools and higher education increasingly drawing the attention of attackers there is an acute need for better tools, procedures and risk mitigation strategies.
Cybersecurity attacks present great risk for hospitals, physician practices and healthcare providers in general. Internet connected medical devices and electronic databases of sensitive patient information are prime targets for attackers.
The healthcare industry faces inherently unique cyber-security challenges. Protected Health
Information (PHI) is widely regarded as a prized asset for cyber-criminals.
Furthermore, as the ability to deploy massive DDoS attacks and ransomware becomes easier and cheaper, the currently unmanageable volume of traffic directed at the networks of providers and payers will only continue to rise.
Challenges are further compounded by the proliferation of mobile devices, understaffed IT teams and the need to be HIPAA compliant.
Regardless of your specialty, PacketViper can implement a custom-built security solution designed to address the specific threats that your important data faces on a daily basis. Don't wait until it's too late!
Hotels, casinos and resorts are increasingly popular targets for cyber criminals using a variety of tactics to access private data. The cost of a potential breach in this arena is steadily increasing.
Manufacturing data that is most interesting to cyber criminals includes information pertaining to patents, designs, plans, formulas and intellectual property.
