Business Challenge

The advent of new financial security compliance regulations have stressed internal network and security teams.  Sniper Watch observes and relaxes these areas by providing your business with the proper tools to allow your employees to concentrate on operations.

Sniper Watch Solution

Chief Information Security Officers (CISO)'s in the financial sector say cyber security awareness needs to be a top priority

Stricter sanctions are being pushed down to banking, financial, and trading firms along with periodic auditing. Financial firms more than ever need a standardized and consistent method of enforcing security policy and procedures to stay within the confines of their programs. Huge fines are imposed on firms for not adhering to policy. Sniper Watch is a systematized ecosystem that imposes military-style enforcement. An outcome is only successful if the protocol is followed correctly. We are a security overwatch to your business objectives. Read more
Cyber incidents involve criminals looking for information such as mergers and acquisition activity, earnings information or product developments, with the intentions to use that information for illicit profits. It takes just one junior broker to get caught with a phishing attempt, clicks on a link from their smartphone because they’re looking up financial information to do their job under high pressure situations, and upon close of an information document (document_close function), an exploit is launched on the broker’s mobile device. The broker gets back to the office, connects to WiFi, and that exploit permeates to other devices laterally. A trading system server is infected and causes erroneous behavior, causing a trade to not post. In the financial sector, seconds and minutes can cause financial transactions to not take place. Your business needs this visibility and ability to detect and stop this from occurring.

The number of cyber attacks against financial services companies reported to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has risen by more than 80% in the last year. In 2017, 69 material cyber incidents were reported to the FCA, an increase on the 38 in 2016 and 24 in 2015.

There is no question that financial firms will get hit with system outage, transaction, revenue stopping malware. The question is how many times over? Do you have the right defenses in place to keep cyber criminals at bay?

Regulations & Compliance

We understand and adhere to the following:

FISMA
The Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (“FISMA”, 44 U.S.C. § 3541, et seq.) is a United States federal law enacted in 2002 as Title III of the E-Government Act of 2002 (Pub.L. 107–347, 116 Stat. 2899). The act recognized the importance of information security to the economic and national security interests of the United States.[1] The act requires each federal agency to develop, document, and implement an agency-wide program to provide information security for the information and information systems that support the operations and assets of the agency, including those provided or managed by another agency, contractor, or other source.

The Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLBA), also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999, (Pub.L. 106–102, 113 Stat. 1338, enacted November 12, 1999) is an act of the 106th United States Congress (1999–2001). It repealed part of the Glass–Steagall Act of 1933, removing barriers in the market among banking companies, securities companies and insurance companies that prohibited any one institution from acting as any combination of an investment bank, a commercial bank, and an insurance company.

The Sarbanes–Oxley Act of 2002 (Pub.L. 107–204, 116 Stat. 745, enacted July 30, 2002), also known as the “Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act” (in the Senate) and “Corporate and Auditing Accountability, Responsibility, and Transparency Act” (in the House) and more commonly called Sarbanes–Oxley, Sarbox or SOX, is a United States federal law that set new or expanded requirements for all U.S. public company boards, management and public accounting firms. There are also a number of provisions of the Act that also apply to privately held companies, such as the willful destruction of evidence to impede a federal investigation.

The healthcare industry invests less than 6 percent of its budget to cybersecurity. Why?

Each day, we ALL put our lives in the hands of our trusted doctors, nurses, and health specialists.

Sniper Watch has drawn the conclusion that it is not affordable for healthcare organizations to pay enormous amounts of money for their Security, because vendors charge high premiums on technology implementations. That’s where we’ve come in. Our solution allows you to do more with less, and provide better security across all possible entry points, giving you comprehensive security at a price point affordable by any organization.
