Cyber-attacks on financial institutions are becoming more frequent, complex, and sophisticated, with potential for far-reaching, systemic impacts. The motivation of cyber-attackers is shifting from purely achieving financial gains to disrupting critical infrastructures, such as through nation-state attacks, which threatens the basis for confidence in the financial system and even national or international stability. In today’s world of geopolitical turmoil and the ever-increasing speed of technological innovation, the threat from actors with the necessary motivation, financial means, and technological capabilities, is real.
