Securing Financial Services Organizations

Financial institutions, including banks, investment firms, and insurance companies, handle vast amounts of sensitive customer information, financial data, and transactions. Cybercriminals often target these institutions due to the high value of the data they possess. Penetration testing helps these organizations identify vulnerabilities in their networks, applications, and systems that could be exploited by attackers.

By conducting regular penetration tests, financial institutions can proactively find and fix security weaknesses, ensuring compliance with stringent regulatory requirements such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This helps protect customer data, maintain trust, and avoid the financial and reputational damage associated with data breaches.

Rarefied has worked with numerous national and local financial institutions to help identify vulnerabilities in their systems and keep them compliant with industry regulations.


Financial Services organizations are often concerned with the following compliance Standards:

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
International Organization for Standardization 27001 (ISO)
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)

All of these standards mandate or recommend penetration testing to help ensure security best practices are being followed, and this is where Rarefied can assist your organization.
