Discussion points for financial institutions

The risk of cyber attacks on financial institutions is highly topical but not a new issue. However, what is changing, and rapidly, is the scale, frequency and sophistication of attacks. Financial institutions rely on technology to deliver convenient internet services to customers and to operate more efficiently. But emerging threats and technology development, such as cloud computing, mean more action is needed to identify and mitigate the risks of cyber crime.

Discussions at a Zurich Risk Forum organised for the financial institutions customer industry community in October 2014 were based on the risk
priorities identified by customers in a survey we commissioned. Perhaps unsurprisingly, cyber threat was high on that list. This white paper summarises the points that were debated during the Forum.
