Find out how we advised and helped a major player in the banking sector with Cybersecurity issues.
The French banking sector has an exceptional market position with some of the world's leading institutions. This is due in particular to their willingness to invest in all banking markets, ranging from commercial banking to investment and insurance.
A leading bank in the euro zone and a major player in international banking
Our client holds key positions in three operating divisions: Domestic Markets and International Financial Services, for retail banking networks and specialised financial services, and Corporate & Institutional Banking, for corporate and institutional clients.
The digital revolution has shaken up all businesses and the banking sector has been no exception! This new model has forced banks to transform their practices and habits by opening up to the outside world, de-siloing services and processing their data to get a 360° view of their customers. Many companies that did not take the path of digitalisation saw themselves gradually collapsing. Banks had no choice but to open up their architecture to become agile and to offer an optimal customer experience. The further digitalisation of financial services has increased banks' exposure to cybercrime and operational IT failures. One of the major players in the banking sector has therefore called on the Go Cloud & Security by Micropole offer to meet these cybersecurity challenges.
