Cybersecurity and FIX
Cybersecurity as a field has evolved rapidly, even in the last six months, bringing dire predictions of major bank failures. Finance has long relied on a small number of security measures, mostly focused on heavy security at the edges of the network (i.e. perimeter security).
Attackers today are smart. They don’t target the walls: They hammer against the weakest points of entry. Trading networks, despite being practically invisible to the broader world of finance, are critical links in the global economy. They need a modern, complete chain of security to avoid being the headline of 2017.
