How defence in depth can sink cyber attacks

The cybersecurity of financial institutions is appearing as a top priority for the Bank of England in the coming months. The central bank will focus on stress testing IT defences for online attacks and establishing new standards for how quickly and effectively financial institutions should contain these breaches.

While business email compromise (BEC), phishing attacks, and malware are still dangerous weapons in a threat actor’s arsenal, they are increasingly using advanced persistent threat (APT) tactics to circumvent defences and avoid detection.
