Cyber threats are 300 times as likely to target the broader financial services industry as companies in other sectors, according to BCG. Whether attackers are attempting to access financial information, take over customer identities, commit fraud, or hold critical files for ransom, your information security team has more than its fair share of challenges.
“Data science is fundamentally transforming cybersecurity. By establishing behavioral models and continuously measuring them against user actions, anomalies can be detected in real-time, without human intervention. The result is a better user experience for the customer and better security at a cheaper cost.”

TOP Financial Services Use cases
Respond to Successful Phishing Attacks
The Gurucul platform adapts in real-time to detect and capture new variants of known phishing attacks. Dynamic machine learning models detect how phishing attacks are structured and where their behaviors exhibit malicious intent. Gurucul’s algorithms monitor and identify emails and other data that doesn’t fit into the normal discourse for individual users.
Detect Third Party Compromise in Realtime
Monitor for abnormal behaviors, access violations and other indicators that a threat actor is looking to disrupt business, gain access to confidential data and/or detonate a ransomware campaign through weaknesses in how organizations connect with supply chain partners. Ingest various business data, including SAP and Salesforce, identity access and entitlements, and apply security analytics to these data sources to determine supply chain anomalies and abnormal behaviors from a consistent baseline.
Investigate Insider Threats as They Emerge
The most effective way to detect insider threats, without generating high volumes of false positive alerts, is to create time-based behavioral baselines and continuously learn what is acceptable behavior to detect anomalies. This requires monitoring and analyzing massive amounts of data from a myriad of sources using advanced machine learning models and data science to pinpoint privilege abuse. This is what Gurucul does, in real time, with exceptional accuracy.
Ensure Compliance with Regulatory Mandates
As cyberattacks targeting the financial sector proliferate, mandatory cybersecurity regulations force organizations to be held accountable for their security posture. Gurucul’s platform helps to facilitate compliance with regulations such as ISO/IEC 27001, NIST 800-53, PCI DSS, EU-GDPR, UK-GDPR, SOX, BSA, GLBA, FINRA, and PSD2. Compliance with financial services regulations requires a broad range of tools and a coordinated approach that is facilitated by Gurucul’s Security Operations Platform.
