The financial services sector receives the greatest number of phishing attacks, and sophisticated malware which is designed to create fraudulent transactions are being used to bypass more advanced controls such as two-factor authentication - and these are becoming more commonplace. Disruption to transactional systems can have serious impact and significantly affect the reputation of financial institutions. Financial institutions are also subject to ever increasing regulation and information security controls are constantly scrutinised whilst fines for non-compliance is increasing.
