to financial institutions and their customers, and regulators have taken
notice. In most jurisdictions, financial institutions are required to meet strict
regulatory requirements around technology risk management, outsourcing and
cybersecurity, designed to prevent fraud and other types of financial crime.

and shut out bad actors.
