Money isn’t your institution’s most important asset – trust is. Cyber-security is a top priority for any financial institution as they are entrusted with the growth and preservation of customer’s financial assets. The website is increasingly central to a financial institutions customer and partner interactions as it serves as a primary path to customer assets and drives a significant portion of the organization’s revenue enablement.
Unfortunately, the Internet has significantly extended an organization’s necessary security perimeter since enabling and enriching a website allows hackers to take advantage of the fact that the attack surface extends across the entire Internet. This website attack surface includes a great many supply chain vendors which enrich the website customer experience and help extract insightful analytics.
These supply chain vendors (and the hackers that exploit them) introduce a universal client-side website vulnerability that grants nearly unlimited access to every element or your web pages on the client side through completely unmanaged connections with corresponding external 3rd party servers. Making matters worse, these 3rd party website supply chain vendors are almost certainly less secure than the typical enterprise. This provides hackers with a comparatively simpler path to access your website content, data, and customers.
Should one of these website supply chain vendors become compromised, as we’ve seen well illustrated in the Magecart breach, a malicious threat actor has full access to the webpage. At risk is:
- Business and Customer Data Theft
- Reputational & Brand Damage
- Lost Revenue
- Fines & Compliance Violations (ex. GDPR, PCI)
This universal vulnerability can also significantly degrade the critical user experience. This introduces increased risk of:
- Website Credit Card Skimming
- CNP Fraud
- Content Defacement
- Session Hijacking
