  • Introduction

    The critical challenges of protecting information systems and assets – financial information, customer data, intellectual property – and the reputational and regulatory implications of failing to do so continue to raise the stakes of cybersecurity and governance in the financial sector in Pakistan today. Recent cyber breaches at major corporations highlight the increasing sophistication, stealth and persistence of cyber-attacks that organizations are facing today – from nation-states, organized crime, and hacktivists, as well as threats from within the organization (which often pose the greatest risk). State Bank of Pakistan released a comprehensive Digital Policy in 2017 and Security concerns in the Financial sector are of paramount concern with three major cyber-attacks resulting in losses of hundreds of millions of rupees in 2018 alone. Pakistan ranks 67th in the Global Cyber Security Index which can pose a major issue for the banking industry. It is, therefore, time for both technical and non-technical executives in the banking sector to increase their knowledge of digital for ultimate growth, profitability, sustainability and most importantly, security, in the future.
