The increased digitisation of banking has resulted in the emergence of various threats to the payment ecosystem. Organised and innovative, cybercriminals are making targeted attacks to turn digital networks’ vulnerabilities to their advantage. Whilst banks’ interconnectivity enhances service delivery, it can also leave them not protected against cybercriminals.

During 2010–2015, there has been a hike in the number of systematic and indirect attacks, bringing up issues as to if banks can maintain security systems ahead of perpetrators.

Banks are required to shun the all-round defence approach and devise strategies to implement risk management tools more effectively. Extra security checks lose their value in case customers consider them to be inconvenient. Security systems need to be smart enough to identify a departure from normal behaviour (account access from an unregistered device or at strange hours) and enhance requirements for authentication. Despite various context-aware applications having begun making headway into financial service systems, there is a dearth of industry-wide applications, particularly in retail banking and consumer payments. At large, each and every participant in the payment ecosystem is responsible for lining up against the various fraudulent practices.
