The lure of actual money and ongoing transactions makes financial services a primary target for some of the most dangerous cybercriminals. It’s becoming clear that, with advances in fraud technologies, cybercriminals are switching their focus away from the ‘easy pickings’ of customers to the more challenging but rewarding targets provided by services providers themselves. Kaspersky's multi-layered approach helps financial services providers to implement an adaptive security strategy.
Systems are now interconnected and mobile devices extensively used both for remote access and for data sharing. This digitization increasingly exposes finance organizations to both generic and targeted attacks.
Kaspersky is a pioneer in helping businesses to adapt their security strategies – to defend their systems and data against advanced threats and targeted attacks – assisted by our world-leading security intelligence. We help organizations like yours to mitigate the risks, detect attacks at an earlier stage, deal with live attacks and improve protection against future attacks, through:
Comprehensive multi-vector discovery and risk mitigation of advanced threats and targeted attacks
All-in one security specificalli designed for Embedded systems, ATMs and Point-of-Sale devices
Borderless security engineered for your hybrid cloud
Evidence-based knowledge, including context and actionable recommendations regarding cyberthreats
Cyber-risk mitigation and enhanced intelligence means your business can safely offer more wide-ranging services to customers, as well as securing your current offerings. Faced with technologies like fraud prevention and the successful detection of Advanced Persistent Threats, most cybercriminals prefer to switch their focus to softer, less aggressively protected targets. Put simply, you become too secure to be worth attacking.
Targeted Attacks are a fast-growing global security issue, and the financial sector is their number one target. The sooner you know you're under attack: the sooner you can prevent ongoing damage. That's why we offer not just preventive security, but also innovative detection designed to identify 'live' attacks on your systems. As part of an adaptive security strategy, Kaspersky Anti Targeted Platform provides advanced detection that goes far beyond conventional, prevention-focused security.
Prediction and Prevention work to stop an incident before it evolves into an accident. Detection and Response define the discovery and remediation of an accident. In this paradigm, each subsequent stage requires greater resource consumption to react than does the preceding stage.
Too often, security receives the budget it’s perceived to deserve, not the budget it actually needs. Security must be highly prioritized and significantly invested in to ensure successful deployment and a strong RTO.

Targeted attacks could be in process in your system right now
Malicious insider activity is a common issue
Data Center attacks can cause massive damage
Ransomware attacks could lock up critical data and devices
Confidential data loss costs more than just money
Compliance and regulatory challenges must be met in full
