Take cybersecurity seriously
Executives in the banking and financial services industries should have particular cause for concern. According to a 2016 study conducted by the Ponemon Institute of 237 companies in six countries including the U.S., the financial services sector experienced the highest annualized cost from cybercrime of 17 industries that were studied. In 2016, the Office of Comptroller of the Currency identified cybersecurity threats as one of the top risks facing banks. Credit unions, too, are updating their cybersecurity stances in response to the growing threats. In our new OnCourse Learning cybersecurity resource guide, we discuss some of the major cyberthreats facing financial institutions today. Phishing attacks, ransomware and other types of malicious malwarefrom hackers are growing in number and complexity. Even more sinister and complex threats are being posed by foreign nation states, terrorists and international criminal organizations.

This cybersecurity guide also explores some of the proposed new cybersecurity regulations facing U.S. financial institutions at the state and federal levels. The guide provides information about cybersecurity resources available to financial institutions from federal and state regulatory agencies.
In addition, the guide includes commentary from subject matter experts on a range of topics related to cybersecurity, such as email fraud, data protection, vendor compliance and cybersecurity training.
