Testing a Bank's Defences Against a Cyber Heist

by BAE Systems Applied Intelligence | Case Study

What happened when a major bank tested how their security would respond to a cyber heist attempt – and how our ethical hackers were able to get total, undetected control of the bank’s network and operations.
The result? A thorough understanding of the bank’s vulnerability and prioritised actions to close the security holes.

About BAE Systems Applied Intelligence

We have been helping to defend the largest nations and businesses in the world for over forty years against advanced threats.

Cyber threats no longer just come from mischievous hackers playing games. They come from organised, smart, stealthy criminal groups and nations, looking to steal intelligence and capital. Attacks pioneered by nation states are now being used to attack businesses of all sizes and standard security technology has dropped in effectiveness from 80% to 20% over the past 10 years.

Additionally criminals are taking advantage of modern communications and computing techniques to plan and conduct their crimes. The techniques and tools that enable business and law enforcement to detect, prevent and investigate crime – both in the physical and cyber worlds – are in the process of rapid adaption.
