In this course the learner will look at banking and financial services in relation to cyber security threats and risks and the potential methods to mitigate and lessen organisational vulnerability to cyber security attacks. The course is relevant to anybody who wishes to learn how to identify and plan for direct cyber-attacks on financial services architecture, including those directly employed by the sector, or learners who need to understand their own organisational financial dependencies underpinning financial systems, including payment systems.
As ‘traditional’ financial institutions, financial market platforms, and emerging cryptocurrency markets attract attacks from state and non-state cyber criminals, how can employees and companies protect their own financial infrastructure and supply chains? Case studies, including the TINBA and ZEUS trojans, will be evaluated and discussed.
