Cyber Security Solutions - Waystone

      Cyber Security Solutions

      Cyber security is becoming an increasing focal point for all global regulators. In response, we have established a dedicated cyber security solution.

      The financial services industry is a significant target for cyber security compliance criminals, perhaps second only to the federal government. Creating a robust cyber security compliance program that incorporates technology professionals and processes as early as possible in the lifecycle of a firm is essential to ensure that good practices and habits are created and embedded from a firm’s inception.

      The importance of implementing a cyber security program

      The following most recent cyber security statistics highlight the importance of implementing a cyber security program:

      • it is estimated that cyber crime cost the world over US$6trillion in 2021
      • 60% of mid-size businesses go out of business within six months of a security breach
      • 95% of cyber security breaches are caused by human error
      • stolen credentials cause 61% of security and data breaches
      • there is a material shortage of cyber security advisors worldwide
      • remote working has had a costly effect on data breaches.
