Financial Services Cyber Security

The IT infrastructure of financial services companies is a significant target as cyber-criminals attempt to infiltrate core networks and enterprise systems.


Cyber-Criminals and Malicious Insiders

The primary sources of attacks on financial services companies are malware, web-based attacks, phishing and social engineering, botnets, and malicious code.

Cyber-Criminals, including malicious insiders, are seeking to steal and exploit the large amount of sensitive and confidential data that is held within systems.

Protecting Your Organisation

Our solutions range from protecting your personnel from phishing attacks to blocking ransomware and preventing business disruption. Sophisticated automation and analytics are often used to discover and contain attacks, and we protect information loss, particularly considering privacy regulations like the GDPR.

Advanced Firewall solutions

Offering complete application and data control along with superior intrusion prevention, file analysis and bespoke CDS provided capabilities, with no loss of network performance.

Continued scanning of internal systems

Constant scanning for known weaknesses and vulnerabilities, along with regular, automated patching of servers and workstations.

Insider Dealing

Fraudulent activity by staff is complex and yet assessment and monitoring staff activity is proven to mitigate the threat of insider dealing.

Monitoring of internal systems

For unauthorised changes or access to servers, workstations, users, groups, shares and mailboxes.

Prevent identity theft

Corporate protection no longer starts and ends at the door of the office. It extends far beyond that. CDS can assess and advise on secure, remote working solutions and processes and also assess the risk of any regular home working locations to ensure no unnecessary risks are being introduced.

Custom Engagements

Augment your capabilities with more specialized and actionable counseling, including our Detection, Analytics and Response Consulting (DARC) practice.


To prepare for the likelihood of a cyber-attack and strengthen your defences, our activity includes the identification of internal and external vulnerabilities, regulation of access privileges, incident response planning, and the implementation of an overall cyber security programme.


As well as using our knowledge of current tactics employed by cyber-criminals and awareness of historical incidents, we anticipate new methods that may result in malicious access to your systems. Our proactive approach predicts and recognises adversary methodology and, therefore, thwarts attacks.


We implement a robust set of tactics to combat cyber-attacks. They include inventory and access governance, perimeter controls, network monitoring, cloud and on-premises monitoring, intrusion detection, cryptographic technologies, data loss prevention, and security policy management.


Additional Services

CDS brings extensive experience in the development and implementation of cyber and data security solutions to protect your data and privacy.

Incident Response

Response and containment in the event of an attack, helping to identify possible entry points, identify stolen data, clean up affected systems and offer clear, concise guidance on what measures to take post-event to assist in prevention of any future compromises.

Assessments & Testing

Simply installing a cyber and privacy solution and not reviewing, monitoring or updating regularly introduces and allows an unnecessary level of risk. CDS are experts in assessing and testing systems to ensure they are working to include penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, remote monitoring and wireless network assessments.

ARM – Alert, Record, Monitor

Knowing what is happening on any network at any point in time is of paramount importance. Without continued alerting, recording and monitoring of events, network activity and system changes, how could you possibly know a breach has occurred or a security risk exists?

Privacy & GDPR

Do you know where your data is stored, where it's going and who has access to it? CDS provide protection and privacy of personal, confidential and commercially sensitive data regardless of where this is stored, be that onboard a vessel, corporate offices or mobile devices.

Counter Measures

Eavesdropping and spying are increasingly more prevalent for high profile and / or wealthy businesses or individuals. CDS thwarts unwanted cybercrime through comprehensive TSCM electronic counter-measures services including the detection of visual and listening surveillance devices and countersurveillance software for accessing computing and mobile devices.

Anti-Drone Protection

As the number of drones grows exponentially, so do the challenges. The wide reach of drone surveillance technology increases the risk of Cyber Security attack and the threat to privacy. A.I.M is the only anti-drone system that detects, guards and protects high-value assets against the new and growing threat of drones.
