This year’s Global Risks Report, an annual study published by the World Economic Forum, names cyber-attacks as the fifth greatest threat the planet faces – the only threat that isn’t related to climate or the environment.

Cyber threats and security breaches are becoming increasingly common, sophisticated and complex, so cyber security has constantly evolve to stay ahead of the game. It should therefore be a top priority for all financial services organisations.

We take cyber security extremely seriously, and we’re doing a great job, as confirmed by our external benchmarking and threat intelligence service, SecurityScorecard, which rates us “A – excellent” with a score of 93 out of a possible 99 for our cyber security measures. This score is based on our grades across ten major security categories, and it’s the highest score we have ever received, putting us ahead of our competitors.
