Why IT services are important for financial firms

Feb 19, 2020

If you represent or own a financial firm, you cannot afford not to contract IT and cyber security services because:


  1. There is a growing security risk in the financial sector, and the average total cost of a data breach is over $7 million.
  2. When a breach occurs, the financial industry has the highest loss of customers. Up to almost one third of customers leave their banks, credit unions or credit card companies after a breach.
  3. Six out of 10 victims of data breaches are companies with less than 1,000 employees.
  4. Financial records, such as your clients’ names, addresses, dates of birth, social security numbers and banking information are really valuable to hackers because this is data that usually follows a person through their whole life.


Save your reputation, money and clients’ trust, and avoid data breaches, cyber threats or any other IT system vulnerabilities.
