How FS-ISAC Threat Intelligence Ramps Up Financial Services Security

February 11, 2020

The legendary quote attributed to Willie Sutton still holds true: Why did Willie rob banks? Because that’s where the money is. In 2020, cybercriminals think no differently. Financial institutions house their clients’ money and today’s digital bad guys seek to make off with those riches.

One important way Financial institutions manage to keep ahead of cyberthreats is by sharing threat information through the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC). FS-ISAC is an industry consortium dedicated to reducing cyber risk in the global financial system. The group leverages its intelligence platform, resiliency resources, and a trusted peer-to-peer network of experts to anticipate, mitigate, and counter cyberthreats.
