Financial Services

The Financial Services Industry is heavily regulated and typically runs comparatively mature compliance and cyber security programmes. However, the recent Equifax Hack with an estimated 143m American and 44m British citizens impacted has demonstrated not only the enormous impact data breaches can have, but also that there is still massive potential for improvement even in this sector. Next to well-known, traditional service providers, innovative financial service offerings are emerging and new players are entering the market.

General Industry Observations:

  • Data heavy – massive amount of sensitive customer and consumer data
  • Intense confidentiality requirements for high net worth individuals, deals and investment strategies in the life segment, and when dealing with individuals or consumer-facing companies in the P&C segment
  • Tangible risks created by lack of sophistication of clients, which are difficult to manage
  • Attractive target for criminal activity and fraud
  • High financial and reputational risk
  • Compliance heavy
  • Limited or no visibility of risk exposure through IT vendors, suppliers & partners

How Does CyNation Help?

CyDesk, automates the processes involved in managing third-party risk and provides organisations with real-time visibility of the risk exposure from their supply chain and third parties. CyDesk combines cyber security, compliance and business risks like AML and KYB into one dashboard. The platform’s flexible design caters for other regulations and business risks to be added to meet client requirements.

CyDesk’s easy to use interface and clear dashboard gives you continuous and in-depth insights allowing you to carefully manage risk in your supply chain. The platform is also tech-neutral and can integrate with existing enterprise solutions.
