Security in digital banking While digital banking has been on a constant rise, banks now face greater exposure to cybersecurity threats. According to KPMG Advisory, considering the Russia-Ukraine war, 81% of bankers who participated in their survey stated that they expect to observe an increase in cybersecurity threats.

However, 34% of them also indicated that they do not focus enough on security protection, while 47% said their bank is heavily working on improving security. Digital criminality in the financial sector has become an issue for financial institutions, as a study suggests that a bank experiences 85 serious attempts of cyber breaches annually. Incidents have increased by approximately 40% in 2020 in the financial services industry, with 90% of data breaches mostly attributed to third-party vendors.

Security updates, transparency, and safety play an important role in banking relationships between customers and banks. Banks are now required to use technology and other cyber security solutions, while cloud providers must have a deep understanding of the financial services sector’s requirements. Solutions are introduced and developed to aid financial institutions, including digital ID that uses biometrics to verify identity. Moreover, the regulatory landscape must adapt to the sector and its needs, as well as to combine sharing best practices and mandatory requirements.

To meet the objective of offering a more secure digital environment for customers and financial services providers, inclusion must also be a fundamental part. The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on how individuals access services, therefore financial inclusion has a pivotal role in delivering growth globally.
