Banking is a business of managing risk, often using terms like liquidity, loan quality or rate risk. Yet, there is another area of risk that doesn’t get as much attention and has the potential to cripple your organization: cybersecurity and the risk it represents to your institution’s long-term reputation. This week kicks off National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, recognizing the importance of how much our daily lives depend on the internet and the security of data.

While financial institutions embrace the advantages of conducting business online, you also experience increased risk of cyberattacks and data breaches that can cause significant losses, severe interruption to operations, and damage to your institution’s reputation. This is why all financial institutions and participants in the financial industry need to ensure their sensitive data and networks are protected.

At SHAZAM, we take this responsibility very seriously and are dedicated to protecting the data of our clients. Remember, even simple behaviors can make a huge difference in the overall security of your financial institution.

Join us in spreading the word about National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Raising awareness is a critical first step.
