Security has never been a more imperative priority for financials services IT than now. Recent waves of cyber attacks, which were thought by the U.S. government to originate in Iran, against American banks are just the tip of the iceberg of what banks have to fend off on a daily basis.

With that in mind, independent IT GRC auditor Coalfire offered its predictions of the top IT security trends in the coming year. “Last year was a very active year in the cybersecurity world,” said Rick Dakin, CEO and co-founder of Coalfire. “The Secretary of Defense announced that the threat level has escalated to the point where protection of cyber assets used for critical infrastructure is vital. Banks and payment processors came under direct and targeted attack for both denial of service as well as next-generation worms.”
