Financial institutions should brace themselves for more malicious 
attacks, as the recent Threat Horizon 2010 report from the Information 
Security Forum (ISF) warns of an increase in such threats -- including 
attacks from organized crime and industrial espionage.

"In general, financial services probably represent the most attractive 
target," says Andy Jones, CISSP and ISF's Principal Research Consultant, 
who was the report's primary author. The report draws on the knowledge 
and hands-on experiences of ISF members, representing more than 300 of 
the world's largest business and public sector organizations. (The 
global financial services industry makes up 35% of ISF members.)
