Most financial crime now takes place online. Successful break-ins have the capacity to remove vast sums of money and ruin the carefully developed public image of leading banking institutions and associated companies. To meet an evolving criminal threat companies involved in financial services must adapt quickly. Under pressure from consumers, governments, shareholders and other interested parties, regulations are changing. Regulation technology is being heavily invested in, fraud detection is improving and major companies are paying ever more attention to the cybercrime threat.
