The report also stated that UK financial services lost over 10% of their revenues because of cyber-attacks.

With the volume and sophistication of cybersecurity attacks set to increase, it is imperative to explore Gen AI’s role in financial services companies’ cyber-defence strategies. Sophisticated cybersecurity is more crucial than ever, and fortunately, several companies are ready to help financial institutions.

Let’s look at four RiskTech companies safeguarding banks and financial organisations against cybercrime in the UK:

Focusing on enhancing customer interactions, AI company Callsign has developed technology for passive authentication, fraud prevention, and intelligence gathering. Its proprietary technology uses AI to replicate human recognition processes. In October 2021, Visa chose Callsign as its preferred behavioural biometric and device intelligence identity partner across Europe.

Quantexa is a cybersecurity company that develops AI technology to protect organizations’ data and detect illegal activities.
