Hackers Held One Of America’s Most Important Pipelines Hostage
Hackers recently held one of America’s most important pipelines hostage, a stunning development that should serve as a warning to even bigger targets… the nation’s financial industry.
The nightmare scenario is that a Colonial Pipeline-style ransomware attack disrupts major banks or even financial markets, dealing a blow to the flow of money and confidence in the system. Instead of lines at gas stations, social media would be ablaze with images of broken ATMs or inaccessible brokerage accounts.
Hackers are getting more sophisticated and automated — dramatically speeding up their attacks and making them harder to detect. Are you aware of any “blind spots” in your existing cybersecurity?
- Does your business have a solid cybersecurity plan?
- What is your incident response plan?
- When was the last time these were reviewed?
Financial businesses face many challenges, including cybersecurity compliance. Navigating the road to regulatory compliance on your own can be difficult.
Although big banks are believed to have strong defenses, security experts and industry officials fear hackers could target community banks, financial service providers, and third parties with inadequate cybersecurity.
