Skills for Finance.

Financial services are consistently the target of threats and attacks. Finance professionals need fundamental cybersecurity training to better protect and defend client data. 

Cybersecurity Training for Finance Professionals

According to a recent report from IBM, the financial services industry experienced the most attacks for the fourth year in a row, with 17% of the total incidents and attacks across all vertical markets. As more transactions occur through mobile apps, and virtual banks that competes with brick-and-mortar businesses gain traction, security is critical to sustain a client’s overall positive user experience and most importantly, trust.

Training business executives, compliance and audit professionals, branch managers, tellers, and all others on fundamental cybersecurity controls as it applies to their position can help better preserve confidentiality and maintain the integrity of client data.
