Synopsis
Timetric’s 'Insight Report: Security in Consumer Payments and Retail Banks' analyzes the growing threat faced by payment systems across the world. Following the increase in the number of targeted attacks, the payments industry is grappling with the question of whether banks can counter the sophisticated skills of cybercriminals.

Cybercriminals work in an unconstrained environment, enabling them to combine creativity and the latest technical expertise faster than banks can anticipate their attacks; as a result, banks tend to lag behind, constrained by their size and legacy systems.

The report gives extensive details of the challenges faced by banks in dealing with cybercriminals. It also analyzes current security tools adopted by banks, along offers in-depth analysis of emerging technology in payments security. The report also explores the relationship of security with consumer convenience. The importance of context-aware and progressive security is discussed, as is the need for a collaborative approach from participants in the payment ecosystem to reduce instances of data breach and fraud.

Key Highlights
- Cybercriminals work in an unconstrained environment that enables them to combine their creativity with the latest technical expertise faster than banks can anticipate their attacks; and as a result, banks tend to lag behind because they are constrained by their size and legacy system.

- Banks put in most of their efforts to stop cyber threats through making investments in security; for example JPMorgan Chase spent US$250 million on online security in 2014, with these expenditures to reach US$500 million by 2019. Yet according to Timetric, more collaboration is required to protect the industry from potential threat.

- Systematic attacks need to be tackled with a collaborative approach to defeat cybercriminals. Individual banks, no matter how big, are unlikely to amass resources to fight targeted attacks on their own. While there is some collaboration, it is limited by cultural differences, the banks’ individual risk aversion, and the increasing modularity of banking systems.

- In addition to external threats, a major threat to data security emanates from insider events. More often, external threats attract the majority of budget consideration while insider threats are understated. “People with privileged information such as employees and contractors should be monitored more carefully. Nevertheless, organizations tend to rely on trust.

- Issues for banks are also confounded by the need to balance security with usability. As the industry is moving towards an environment where banks compete on customer experience, the mechanics of payments should not be conspicuous to banks' clients; they should be seamless and secure. Market perception of trade off between security and usability can be changed with efficient use of technology.
