Aussie banks under attack from criminals

Banking and finance is heavily affected by cybercrime according to the Australian Cyber Security Centre's 2015 Threat Report. The Banking and financial services industry drew heavily on the assistance of CERT, the government computer emergency response team in 2014.

Banking and financial services accounted for 20 per cent of incident responses by CERT affecting systems of national interest and critical infrastructure.

Australia's wealth and high use of social media, email and online banking make us an attractive target for organised crime syndicates.
