Protect your customers and your reputation
Your financial institution deals with sensitive material, and you must ensure that your customers’ information and your assets are protected. You need to have an experienced IT compliance and cybersecurity company to assist and create a custom solution for your institution.
IP services literally wrote the book on implementing best practices for managing IT systems and cybersecurity – The Visible Ops Handbook, Implementing ITIL® in 4 Practical and Auditable Steps. You can have the experts work with your team to create a custom plan that fits your specific needs.
The threat is real: 30 attacks per second
Cybercriminals attack financial institutions at a greater frequency than other organizations at a rate of 300 to one, and the total number of threats that infiltrate financial organizations is around one billion times per year versus four million for other business sectors.
The IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and Visible Ops experts can help your institution control the four P’s that are necessary to run efficiently and effectively, People, Process, Products and Partners. The fifth P not mentioned is planning, which is the first step in ensuring that your company has protection.
Best practices framework is key
Effective implementation of ITIL should save your organization time and money, keep your customers and their information safe and improve processes. The ITIL framework encompasses seven key modalities that result in a comprehensive system that covers the end-to-end operations of your organization.
