Both environments, who are heavily regulated and audited with strong conventional controls, still left a wide open space to defraud shareholders, manipulate employees and expose customers. In 2020, moving people into new environments shifted the security baseline, making employees vulnerable with compromised security awareness. What does this tell us about the nature of Controls? Can this even be completely prevented going forward?

During this period, financial services have been embracing innovative technologies in order to continue servicing their clients.
