The State of Vulnerability Response in Financial Services: Patch Work Demands Attention

Cover

Major data breaches are headline news. When a bank or insurance firm exposes customer credit card data or policy-related information to hackers, the public outcry is immense. Financial services institutions risk credibility and face intense government scrutiny when consumer financial data is compromised.

ServiceNow surveyed 467 cybersecurity professionals in the financial services industry around the globe, and found that almost 50% of these organizations suffered a data breach in the last two years. Of these, the majority said that they had been breached because of a vulnerability—for which a patch was already available.

Given that the majority of cyberattack victims are breached because of unpatched known software vulnerabilities, effective vulnerability response is a critical weapon in the cybersecurity arsenal.

Find out how your organization can reduce the risk of a breach and take care of its vulnerabilities fast.
