The financial services industry was built upon security and privacy. As cyber attacks become more sophisticated, a strong vault and a guard at the door won’t offer protection against phishing, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, third-party risk, and IT infrastructure breaches. To effectively meet compliance mandates, securely migrate to the cloud, and manage risk, financial services institutions turn to Coalfire for services that span the cybersecurity lifecycle.

Proactive Cyber Management for Financial Services

Prevent unarmed robbery

Mobile banking, cloud computing, and compliance mandates for vendor management have escalated the information risk profile of most financial services institutions. To help protect organizations in this evolving marketplace, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has published guidance on cybersecurity practices that broker-dealers, investment firms, and advisors should adopt.

As a leading cybersecurity advisor, Coalfire works with financial institutions’ security teams to develop scalable programs that improve their security posture, look beyond compliance, and enable them to securely migrate core business functions to the cloud. Our audit, assessment, technical testing, and secure cloud services help institutions balance compliance and risk management programs with business objectives.
