Performance, cybersecurity, and risk requirements in response to COVID-19
During these unprecedented times, financial services institutions face unique operational challenges related to COVID-19 social distancing efforts. Many retail branches have moved to drive-in only and most employees have been strongly encouraged to work from home.
Opportunistic cybercriminals will likely increase their efforts to expose remote worker vulnerabilities, especially targeting the financial industry to gain access to sensitive financial data. Only the institutions with the most secure digital experiences will be able to fully accommodate new COVID-19-related performance, security, and risk requirements.
Remote workers are connecting to internal networks and systems more than ever, leading to several new challenges including:
