Whilst the FSI sector races to implement cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain and automation, there are no mutually agreed upon set of best practices to implement these technologies. As a result, organisations are using their own blend
of strategic initiatives and company culture to drive innovation, with varying levels of success. To help, this article features advice from five of the leading experts in the FSI and technology sector today.
Several of the most visible tactics to kick-start innovation in FSI organisations include launching innovation or incubation centres, launching hackathons, partnering with or acquiring start-ups, venture investment or simply trying to develop solutions in house. Whilst each of these approaches has potential, there is a risk that organisations fall into the trap of innovation theatre, in other words, failing to effectively integrate cutting edge technology into key business functions.

In our first cyber security checklist, we provided a security overview and best practices to help organizations prevent an initial compromise from occurring. In this guide, we will help you understand practical steps you can take to mitigate techniques attackers use once they have penetrated your defenses. Once attackers have access to a machine, they can evade detection by using fileless techniques and legitimate system administration tools to do their dirty work. With this checklist, you will have a guide to help mitigate the impact of an attacker. Lastly, we will hep you understand how partnering with a company like Alert Logic can provide better defenses to stop attackers in their tracks.
This checklist helps to explain how to:
• How to manage and limit PowerShell access
• Securing and utilizing Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
• Ways to apply application controls
• Following the principle of least privilege and applying access controls
