How do banks protect themselves from hacking attacks?

May and June this year saw ransomware attacks sweep across the globe affecting entire operations with the NHS in the UK among those being targeted. Only last week, we’ve just seen Europe’s largest banking security breach this year. Data from 400,000 UniCredit client accounts was stolen in the hack and the bank insisted they “immediately took all the necessary action” to tackle the breach. But did they?

This is the same bank that suffered attacks in September and October 2016!

In fact, this latest breach was only detected while conducting routine checks and they cannot confirm what information has been stolen over the period of these multiple undetected breaches. Many banking computer systems lack security and this means that hackers can burrow deep into their networks and operate for months completely undetected.

This is a warning to UK banks.
