Improving cybersecurity in financial services

Akamai Technologies and Asian Banking and Finance will discuss trends and threats in their upcoming webinar.

As more and more customers adopt the usage of digital banking platforms, financial services institutions and the industry as a whole has become bigger targets for cyberattacks. In a recent study by Akamai Security Research, web application and API attacks have grown by 449% year-over-year, making the industry one of the most widely attacked industries in Asia.

Attackers have been noted to become faster in leveraging zero-day vulnerabilities in targeting financial services organisations, prompting a proper and thorough reevaluation of the state of cybersecurity in Asia.

In order to improve your cybersecurity protections, new and complex cyber-attacks need to be understood and then security controls need to be updated rapidly and scaled. To this effect, sharing any intel and best practices can go a long way for companies that seek to address these new challenges.

Asian Banking and Finance, together with Akamai Technologies, aim to tackle and understand how the financial services industry is being targeted in their webinar named Cyber Leaders Dialogue for Financial Services

In addition to understanding cyber threats, this webinar will also offer practical advice about how the C-suite should engage the board and key stakeholders to give cyber security enough attention and resource.

Participants can expect to learn more about complex cyber threats that target cloud environments, apps & APIs, and users and how to detect them with the help of technology, along with possible ways to update cyber strategies and risk postures.
