Citizens Bank of PA has been hit by cyberattacks, according to an article in Philadelphia Business Journal. In keeping with my previous post on this topic, “Cyberattacks on U.S. Banks – Are You Safe?” these attacks are still being blamed on Iran, despite their continued denial of involvement.
Thus far the financial institutions have spent millions trying to shore up their security and ward off attacks. At this point, they are requesting assistance of the U.S. government, according to an article in the Wall Street Journal. This is significant, coming from an industry which flatly rejected the imposition of security measures previously.
