Finance is the biggest target of cybercrime

The finance sector has always been a prime target of cybercrime with over 24% breaches targeted at them last year and 97% of attackers driven by financial or espionage motives.

While botnets and ATM skimming continues to plague this industry, privilege misuse and human errors have become a dominant theme. Where are attacks coming from? Recent IBM data shows there are more insider-born attacks (58%) than outsider attacks (42%) on financial services — but most insiders don’t know they’re causing harm. More than half of insider attacks come from are ‘inadvertent actors’ compromised via phishing attacks, or internal attacks from another networked system.
