Security of customer data and information systems to ward off cyber attacks

The most recent laws and regulations (DSGVO, PSD2 and BAIT) increase the requirements for protecting the integrity and availability of customer data and IT security in banks.

A successful IT organization meets these requirements by a proactive and risk-based risk management and IT security. IT risks came into the focus of banking supervision in the most recent past and various institutions have requested substantial SREP capital add-ons. The risks arising from the use of IT systems directly affect the capital requirements of a bank.

According to the EBA ICT the supervision subdivides IT risks into the following 5 categories:

(1) ICT availability and continuity risk: Bank processes are not or only partially available

(2) ICT security risk: Banking systems are exposed to external and internal attacks (such as cyberattacks)

(3) ICT change risk: Changes to banking systems lead to disruption

(4) ICT data integrity risk: the data stored in the IT systems is incorrect or inconsistent

(5) ICT outsourcing risk: Bank services can be compromised because of a service provider failure

CURENTIS AG offers to its customers the following services in the context of IT risk management and application security management:

  • Concepts and implementation of an application fraud management
  • Authorization Design Matrix of the information systems taking into account the segregation of Duties according to MaRisk
  • Business Impact Analysis for rating information systems
  • Identification and analysis of security events
  • Determination of the attack vectors• Outline the critical scenarios
  • Application Security Monitoring (ASM)

ACAP: Sustainable Consulting with Absorptive Capacity

The ability to bring new information into a company, distribute it among the staff and then use it meaningfully for the company’s success is a crucial competitive factor. In particular, in order to respond to changing market requirements and help shape them through innovation, the successful use of external knowledge is becoming increasingly important.

For the long-term success of a company, it is particularly important that this knowledge is not only available to individuals or for a project, but that there is also a suitable process by which this know-how is available to the company in the long term. The ability of a company to absorb knowledge is referred to in science as Absorptive Capacity (ACAP) and is understood as the skillset of acquiring, assimilating, transforming, and exploiting new knowledge. The increased pressure for change as a result of digitization has further increased the demands placed on companies in this area.

But what impact do consultants have on the absorptive capacity of companies?

CURENTIS employee Harun Ara has dealt with this topic in the context of his master’s thesis at the University of Stuttgart. Based on expert interviews with various consulting companies, he has developed suitable measures to increase the absorptive capacity of companies.

On this basis, CURENTIS has developed a consulting service that supports companies in increasing their absorptive capacity. If you are interested in the topic, please contact info@curentis.com .

Brexit is making Frankfurt more attractive for banking consultants

The impact on banks and related jobs caused by the Brexit has been discussed intensively in the media. There is talk of an additional 5000 to 15000 banking jobs being created in Frankfurt.

The migration of a lot of bankers from London to Frankfurt also affects the demand for consultants. The affected banks need support for the issues caused by the shift. Particularly the core competencies of CURENTIS, which are regulatory reporting and anti-financial crime, are affected.

At the same time CURENTIS receives applications from young, high-skilled consultants, who want to take another step in their career and get a foot in the door for a more promising work environment in the financial sector outside of Great Britain. It is about motivated and dedicated professionals, who plan an international career in Frankfurt. For these consultants Great Britain has lost attractiveness.

CURENTIS can provide assistance in the relocation and language training to these candidates and looks forward to the excellent newcomers in our team.
