Make a wise investment

Financial institutions are finding themselves under increasing pressure. The introduction of complex legislation and the ever-growing threat of a cyber-attack have had serious implications for businesses across industries. In 2015, cyber-criminal activity increased by 40% in the finance sector.

At the same time, businesses need to attract and retain customers. Research shows that less than 50% of people born between 1980 and 2000 will stay with their current bank. Competition’s fierce, with new players entering the market and investing in new ways to keep customers loyal. Finding an IT solution that will keep you ahead of the game, whilst protecting your customers’ information, is not easy.

OCG understands the challenges that the finance industry is experiencing. We’ve worked with insurers, banks, building societies and mortgage providers to help them improve customer service and protect corporate data from sophisticated cyber-attacks.

I’m ready – let’s talk!
