Financial services firms are prime targets for cybercriminals

Cybercrime threatens all kinds of businesses and organisations, but there are certain forms of personal data records that can be particularly highly prized by cybercriminals. Financial services firms represent valuable targets for hackers, as the information they hold can be lucrative.

The cybercrime landscape has evolved in a way that seeks to take advantage of the increasing aggregation and digitisation of personal information by businesses. Many companies now keep huge stores of personal information relating to customers and stakeholders, as well as their own workforces. Unfortunately, some businesses do not have the strong cybersecurity and data protection policies to keep data safe and secure, which can lead to breaches of data protection law.

Even when a cyberattack occurs, it is not solely hackers that are to blame for an incident. If the company that was attacked did not have appropriate defences in place, they can be at fault for failing to protect information. If you have been affected by a data breach incident like this, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim.
