Over the past decade, cybercrime has grown to become one of the biggest threats to financial institutions all around the world. Although cyber security does not actively generate revenue for the banks, the growth of cybercrime has forced both governments and institutions to place cyber security as a priority. Jacob Parker-Bowles has worked with some of the largest institutions in the world, including Barclays, RSA, Lloyds Bank, and Ongame. Jacob has enjoyed having the the ability to help financial institutions put the best-in-class protection into place to fight against cyber crime.
A lot has changed since Jacob Parker-Bowles first entered the finance industry back in 2004. At the time, financial crime did not exist on the massive scale that it does today. Previously, the largest financial security issues facing the industry involved such things as identity theft and card fraud. For the most part, these crimes were simply handled by the police. As technology has progressed, however, criminals have been able commit a wide range of crimes on a much larger scale. This has forced Jacob, and the cyber security industry as a whole, to remain agile and proactive in their approach to cyber crime prevention.
The financial services industry has been in an arms race over the past several years, working to develop and secure new technologies in order to stay ahead of the competition who looks to exploit them. Jacob Parker-Bowles has helped design new tools and technologies that aid institutions in the detection and prevention of cybercrime threats against online and mobile banking.
