Cyber Fraud in the Finance Sector

Cyber fraud in the finance sector has become an increasingly prevalent problem in recent years. With the rise of digital transactions and online banking, criminals have found new ways to exploit vulnerabilities in financial systems to steal money and sensitive information. Here are some reasons why cyber fraud is increasing in the finance sector:

Increased use of digital transactions: The move towards digital transactions has created more opportunities for cyber criminals to commit fraud. The more transactions that are conducted online, the more avenues there are for criminals to exploit.

Sophisticated hacking techniques: Cyber criminals are using more sophisticated techniques to breach financial systems, such as social engineering, malware, and phishing attacks. These techniques are becoming harder to detect and prevent, making it easier for fraudsters to gain access to financial data.

Lack of security measures: Many financial institutions have not implemented adequate security measures to protect against cyber fraud. This can leave their customers vulnerable to attacks and makes it easier for criminals to steal money and sensitive data.

Remote work: The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a rise in remote work, which can create new security risks. Remote workers may not have access to the same security measures and protocols as they do when working in an office, making them more vulnerable to cyber attacks.

Rapid adoption of new technology: Financial institutions are constantly adopting new technology to improve efficiency and stay competitive. However, this can also create new vulnerabilities that can be exploited by cyber criminals.

We, at Tsarolabs , believe, that in order to combat cyber fraud in the finance sector, it is important for financial institutions to implement robust security measures, educate their employees and customers about the risks, and keep up-to-date with the latest technologies and best practices for preventing cyber attacks.

Cyber security in Sports

While attacks against sports entities continue to advance and become more popular, the sports world needs to catch up regarding securing assets.

This means that sports organizations either have yet to grasp the magnitude of a continuing and worsening trend or they have yet to take the proper steps in implementing protection methods.
The technologies to protect sports organizations are out there, but the ” know-how ” is currently missing.”

Even when organizations do allocate budgets and purchase security products, they often buy the wrong ones or use them in the wrong way, having a common understanding of the products they need. They are “misconfigured.

Most attacks against the sports world fall into the organized crime category. These individuals are motivated by financial gain and want to extort money from the victim organization. Numerous assets to protect, but the crown jewels could be categorized as the following: fan data, proprietary assets such as athletes, social media accounts, mobile apps and websites, cloud-based servers, online bank accounts, and, finally, employees.

Sporting organizations must work hard to educate leaders and implement new systems to protect themselves from an ever-evolving threat. Cyber protection has to be a significant consideration per project, and implementing experienced personnel such as a dedicated CISO (chief information security officer) is a must.


  • Establishing and implementing a comprehensive cyber awareness program to ensure all club members — from players to executives — are aware of the risks and how what they click on could impact the club.
  • Encouraging organizations to invest in AI-based techs, such as inbox defense systems, which provide real-time protection, can significantly impact the number of emails reaching the user’s inbox.
  • We are establishing GDPR compliance and creating Privacy Shield to protect organizational data.
  • Protecting devices and networks by keeping them up-to-date, adopting the latest supported versions, applying security patches promptly, and using antivirus and scanning regularly to guard against known malware
  • Restricting intruders’ ability to move freely around your systems and networks

  • Putting risk on the agenda: Discussions of your organization’s values and actions to protect it should be part of regular business. Making time to cover these issues at your management meetings or weekly catch-ups. When compared to physical threats, determine where cyber security threats sit on the priority list.
  • Preparing your business for the most common cyber security threats by developing plans to handle those incidents most likely to occur. The best way to test your staff’s understanding of what’s required during an incident is through various exercises to test your organization’s resilience and preparedness.

Some tips for IT Practitioners

Make basic attacks more difficult: Implement Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for essential services such as email accounts. MFA buys a lot of supplementary security for relatively little effort. Organizations of all sizes can use MFA to protect their information, finances, and the services they rely on for day-to-day business.

You should also consider the application of other technologies to manage access to essential services, such as conditional access and role-based monitoring

Reduce the password burden:

Review how your organization uses passwords. To take some pressure off your staff, use technical security controls like blocking common passwords and allowing the use of password managers. Consider how you can identify or mitigate common password attacks, such as brute-forcing before harm is done.
