Vulnerabilities identified in NY banking vendors


Threatpost - (New York) The New York State Department of Financial Services released a report on cyber security in the banking sector April 9 which revealed that one in three New York banks are neglectful of information security relating to third-party vendors and are vulnerable to backdoor access by those looking to steal data as a result. One in three banks interviewed did not require vendors to notify them in the event of a data breach, and only half had strategies prepared for breach scenarios, among other findings.
