A change in Cyber Culture at a Financial Services Firm
Seeking 3rd Party validation for their existing technology infrastructure, IT security budget, security policies and procedures, and advice on potential improvement strategies, the Technology department of the financial services firm invited Remora to perform a Cyber Risk Assessment and provide recommendations. The initiative was approved by the firm's Board of Directors.
A medium-size catering business became a victim of multiple cyber security attacks that lead to crippling of business operations and ultimately to significant financial losses and reputational damages. The Board decided to hire an outsourced Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) to tackle the cyber and data protection issues systemtically and maintain uninterrupted operation of the business on IT and IT security side.
A medium-size fintech company with a wide network of clients across Europe and the UK asked Remora to become the outsourced Data Protection Officer (DPO) for the business to ensure the company maintains protection of personally identifiable information in line with the EU GDPR requirements.

A low-level associate at the company was targeted and opened an email link which contained malware that tried to breach the systems of organisation. The company had strong cyber security countermeasures in place and the data breach was stopped before it could cause any damage. However, Remora was contacted to run a cyber security awareness training course for all employees, so they are more alert to the security risks.
