Hernandez is regularly sought after by banking associations and state banking schools across the country to discuss cybersecurity and the evolving threat landscape as it relates to financial institutions; because while banks have similar needs to other corporations, they also have unique security needs that present a compelling requisite for a solution that keeps our country’s most sensitive financial data secure from foreign attackers, organized criminals and other bad actors.

Additionally, the increasing sophistication of cyber threats proves that simple mitigation strategies no longer suffice to counter attacks.
The gap between banking and cybersecurity is now becoming thinner, and clearly, banks and other financial institutions need to regularly evaluate and leverage their defense strategies.
