Tech Leaders Hub Fintech #2: Fintech cybersecurity: the pitfalls that could end your business

Cybersecurity is more important than ever—especially if you’re in fintech.

Destructive cybersecurity attacks against global financial institutions have surged by 118% between 2020 and 2021, according to VMware.

It’s time for tech leaders to prioritize cybersecurity—which is exactly why we made it the topic of Tech Leaders Hub Fintech #2.

Our guest was Aleksander Czarnowski, CEO at Defenselayers and AVETINS, an expert with over 23 years of experience in cybersecurity.

Topics we covered:

  • The common cybersecurity mistakes fintechs are making;
  • How you might be misallocating your cybersecurity budget (especially past Year One);
  • How you can introduce a secure development lifecycle with privacy by default to prepare yourself against future threats;
  • Container and serverless computing security;
  • Compliance, GDPR, and dealing with the strict regulations in the financial sector.
