Financial Crime and Cybersecurity Webinar

Financial Crime and Cybersecurity – What You Need to Know to Prevent Cyber Threats and Attacks

DIT Portugal, Greece, Poland, Austria and Czech Republic have teamed up to showcase UK innovative cybersecurity solutions designed to support companies in the Financial Services Sector in these countries.

According to PWC: “There are two kinds of financial services firms: those that have faced a cyberattack and those that will. For one thing, that means building defences that are comprehensive and resilient. Financial Services companies must prepare for how they will respond, just as they do for other disasters. This will help them limit damage and speed recovery.”

Adding to this, COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it a significant increase in fraudulent activity as the mass move to a remote working during the pandemic has created a hotbed of cybercrime activity.
