2. Indiscriminate DDoS Attacks on UK Financial firms increased

Data obtained from a cybersecurity agency shows that DDoS attacks on British financial institutions have been on the rise in the past few months. The point to watch out for is that hackers focus on targeting key infrastructure, including Britain’s financial sector, through intensive saturation attacks instead of simply extorting money from victims. Cyberattacks pose a threat to all financial services companies. Companies must be able to recognize threats and defend themselves effectively.
