Throughout the entire month of January, The Fintech Times will be exploring every dimension of one of the industry’s most pressing topics: cybersecurity.
Throughout the past year, and in anticipation of the year ahead, fintech has experienced a profound period of progression. The industry has really boomed, but as fast as the technology has accelerated, it’s important that developments in cybersecurity manage to keep the same fast pace.
Fintech sits upon financial data, which itself is intertwined with a base of sensitive personal, and more often than not, corporate information. This type of data is extremely important. Not only is it used to secure the wide range of uses within fintech, but it ensures the stability, integrity and authenticity of the technology itself.
Because of its important role within everyday dealings, financial data and its many branches have become highly attractive targets in the beady eyes of cybercriminals, whose techniques and ill intentions become more sinister and increasingly intelligent with each passing attack.
As is often the case with the forces of contemporary cybersecurity, protection very much works in the background, thwarting oncoming attacks without causing undue stress or awareness to the potential victim. It can be firmly stated that the fintech boom the industry is enjoying today wouldn’t be where or what it is without the cybersecurity measures guiding its every step.
So for the entire month of January, The Fintech Times will be celebrating all that’s good and great about cybersecurity, how it’s adapting to meet the ever-changing needs of society, how people can obtain and retain security, and what the cybersecurity developments of today are doing to keep fintech secure tomorrow.
