How Does Cybersecurity Work With Fintech? — Bright Money
Cybersecurity in Fintech.
Cybersecurity is constantly evolving, developing new strategies and technologies because cybercriminals’ methods are always evolving too. Every year, businesses and their customers lose more than $500 billion to cybercrime. A new attack happens every 39 seconds.
For top Fintech companies, cybersecurity is built into every step. Security begins with protecting data and preventative surveillance and extends to studying breaches and learning from disruptions to develop new responses.
Here are a few methods Fintech’s often use to keep your data and money safe.
Blockchain technology avoids main servers that can be targeted and hacked — systems that mirror old-fashioned bank vaults, with valuables stored in one secure place. Instead, Fintech’s often use blockchain systems, decentralized by design, with a network of computers, public and private security keys, and cryptographic requirements for every transaction.
Private cloud storage
For consumers, cloud storage has become an everyday tool, often used for archiving images and large files. In Fintech, the amount of stored data is often massive, and security needs are exceptional. So many Fintech’s develop their own private cloud, to better control access, or even multiple clouds, to create more layered access and security.
AI and machine learning
Machine learning and artificial intelligence can quickly process and study large stores of data, identifying authorized users by their behavior and intercepting unauthorized users. Fintech’s rely on AI’s scale and efficiency to flag threats like fraud and to spot vulnerabilities in their own systems.
Regulatory technologies (Regtech)
Regtechs are designed to ensure compliance with laws and standards, especially around encryption and privacy protections. For Fintech’s, Regtech provides important standardized safeguards.
