The average monetary cost of a malware attack for an organisation is $2.4 million as well as 50 days in time due to significant disruptions to daily business operations (Accenture). What’s more is that attacks and breaches cause irreparable reputational damage which cannot be accounted for.
With cyber-criminals and the threat landscape growing increasingly sophisticated businesses must keep up by updating their security practices. Investment firms are encouraged to have a layered approach to strengthening networks carrying sensitive client information, to keep malicious hackers at bay.

Last week, we explored a layered approach to security with investment firms at our breakfast briefing event in London.

Here are some of the key security layers investment firms are enouraged to consider:
Overall, we recommend investment firms to adopt a security by design approach, utilising security products and services that have been designed from the foundation to be end-to-end security embedded.
