Unified Cyber Risk & Fraud Monitoring for Financial Services

Seamlessly detect data leaks, stolen credentials & fraud schemes

Financial Institutions continue to be the most targeted industries by malicious actors due to the unique information they handle. Whether it’s a phishing attack, skimming or card-not-present fraud, there are numerous dark web schemes being used to collect personal and financial data of financial services and their clients.

With complete visibility and coverage provided by a threat exposure management platform, financial services can be confident in their digital infrastructure.

Banking security teams have a lot to worry about. Banks are rated as one of the most targeted industries by malicious actors due to the opportunity for financial theft and the criticality of the services provided.

Banks need to worry about protecting customer accounts from attempts at monetary and reward point theft, customer privacy, as well as more typically cyberattacks such as ransomware and distributed denial of service attacks.

Banking security teams often struggle to:

Understand their attack surface

Cybersecurity analysts face difficulties when trying to manually map their organization’s attack surface especially when it comes to the external attack surface. Banks have an extensive attack surface that can put both customers and employees at risk. Shadow IT and other threats lurk in the background and are often unknown to security teams until it’s too late.

Manage dozens of tools

The unique nature of banking cybersecurity requires an array of tools. Unfortunately this results in an ad-hoc and disorganized approach that can consume extensive amounts of time and resources, with limited results to show for it. Internally-built cybersecurity tools can cause problems in the long run — requiring constant employee maintenance — not to mention the risk of the lone developer with the know-how leaving the company.

Find the signal in the noise

Banking security analysts that are monitoring their organization’s attack surface still face an extremely noisy dataset. The datasets showcase general intelligence and do not provide easy to understand actionable intelligence that is prioritized by cyber risk level.

Combat reward points & financial fraud on the deep and dark web

Banking security teams have a lot to worry about. Protecting their employee accounts, customer accounts, regulated data, while meeting numerous compliance requirements such as the NYDFS Cybersecurity Regulation is enormously challenging. Security analysts often find it difficult to proactively identify financial fraud and reward point scams against their customers on the deep and dark web.
