Data Privacy Challenges Facing BFSI and Fintech Giants

Data privacy is crucial and most important for every industry to protect their confidential data. However, the fintech industry and the banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) sector is faced with major data privacy challenges because of increase in digitization and technological reliance. As guardians of vast amounts of sensitive data of customers, these sectors or companies are the target of cybercriminals. They are often the victim of ransomware, phishing, and social engineering.
