However, it has also expanded the threat surface and hence the financial sector is witnessing increased and targeted attacks, which are increasingly becoming more advanced and innovative. Along with, regulators are taking notice, they are building and implementing new public policies, legislations and controls for cyber risks to address the growing threat to the BFSI ecosystem.
