SWIFT-GBSN Case Writing Program: Cyber Security and Finance
GBSN and the SWIFT Institute are partnering to develop 3 case studies looking at cybersecurity and wholesale banking in emerging economies. Financial institutions in emerging markets tend to lack the expertise and resources to develop and maintain a robust cybersecurity function. However, when a bank lacks this infrastructure and there is a security breach, the problem becomes global affecting banks across borders. These three case studies will examine ways in which these financial institutions minimize this risk, and they will be a means to share best practices that these institutions use to mitigate risks.More Details
