The vulnerabilities associated with banking and financial organizations tend to be heightened due to the nature of the landscape. Not only do financial institutions need to protect the sensitive information of their clients, but also of their own interests and assets. Fraud strategies and attack campaigns evolve quickly and financial institutions need streamlined access to a broad range of web sources to stay ahead of data breaches, PII leaks, fraud, and other attacks.
With over 6.3 million records compromised every day, GDPR penalties in the millions and global brand reputations at stake, it’s no surprise that hedge funds, insurance, and financial institutions are some of the earliest adopters of alternative data for threat intelligence.
Searching the less-understood areas of the web using specific identifiers, like your institution name or email domain, enables you to discover emerging threat tactics before they unfold. The Echosec Systems Solution gives you streamlined access to online information, and delivers real-time alerts to inform you when critical content emerges online so you can catch leaks, combat credit card fraud and stay ahead of future attacks.
A more contextual understanding of the quickly evolving financial threat landscape, along with tools that deliver immediate, actionable, relevant information leads to a more secure organization and a lower risk profile.
