Application attacks and attacks against APIs are surging. According to “Modern Bank Heists Report 5.0,” 60% of cyberattacks result in island-hopping, wherein the adversary hijacks the digital transformation of the financial institution (FI) in order to attack their customers. In addition, 94% of FIs suffered attacks wherein an application programming interface (API) was the attack vector. With cybercrime cartels using application attacks to manifest criminal conspiracies, it is imperative that you defend from within.
Trust and confidence in the safety and soundness of your applications and APIs is paramount in 2023. Contrast Security is committed to protecting the financial sector. Our participation in the FS-ISAC and Cyberfraud Taskforces of the US Secret Service underscores our dedication to the sector.”
