Key research questions

  • Why are we seeing an increase in industrialized financial crime?
  • Why have banks failed to mitigate financial crime?
  • What steps must a bank take to protect itself from an attack?


Banks remain a prime target for hostile actors because of their crucial role in intermediating funds. Increasing complexity and digitisation of the industry, a morphing ecosystem, and the introduction of open banking compound to make banks an even more appealing target for criminals. In particular, banks will be exposed to increased industrial-scale attacks — attacks that operate beyond traditional system silos, peer groups, and accounts.

The report examines the need to manage crime associated with an unparalleled level of disruption. It recommends a strategy that monitors hundreds of thousands of different variables inside and outside the bank in real time and an early warning system that is not restricted by predefined thresholds. Banks will also require a support system that triggers and shapes executive decisions on how best to respond to a threat or isolate an attack.
