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.

Financial services data breach advice

Financial services data breaches are becoming bigger and bigger problems, with some research indicating that most exposed information came from financial services data breaches last year.

According to a report from the data protection company Bitglass, compiled from data by the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) and the Ponemon Institute, although the financial services industry contributed to 62% of data exposed last year, it only accounted for 6.5% of data breaches in total. This suggests that, whilst they only contribute to a small percentage of reported data breaches overall, an enormous amount of data is exposed in these breaches.

Your Lawyers (T/a The Data Leak Lawyers) is a leading firm of data breach compensation experts, and this research does not come as a surprise to us. We have pioneered data breach action since 2014 and we are passionate about fighting for justice for the victims of data breaches. We are here to help anyone that has suffered because of their sensitive information being misused or exposed in a data breach, and we offer free, no-obligation advice to victims.
