Symantec Challenges Financial Services Security
In this age of the customer, there is nothing more important than the effective and safe operation of our financial system. Trillions of dollars move around the world because of a well-oiled financial services system. Most consumers take our financial services system for granted. They get paid, have the money direct deposited into their account, pay bills, use their ATM card to get cash, and put family valuables in the safety deposit box. The consumer’s assumption is that their cash, investments and valuables are safe.
Symantec’s 2014 CyberWar Games set out to prove or disprove how correct are these assumptions. Symantec’s cyber war event is the brainchild of Samir Kapuria, a Symantec Vice President within the Information Security Group. Symantec structures the event as a series of playoff events. Teams form and compete, earning points for creating and discovering exploits. Out of this process, the ten best teams travel to Symantec’s Mountain View California headquarters to compete in the finals.
