Cyber Security

Businesses are becoming increasingly dependent on IT technologies and services, mobile devices, cloud services and social media. Cybersecurity, which is the protection of system, networks and data in cyberspace from attack, damage or unauthorised access, is now a vital element to any business. Cyber criminals are now hacking into firms and launching “denial of service” attacks. They have also been known to carry out identity theft and financial fraud, which means that employees and customers are also at risk.

Applicants for a financial services license are now required by the Malta Financial Services Authority to implement an IT and operational setup when the master data is located in Malta. The Malta Gaming Authority requires applicants for remote gaming licenses to implement an information security policy which safeguards data, applications, equipment and network, as well as a strict system access control policy. If remote gaming applicants do not adhere to these cyber security policies, they will not be issued a license to operate their business from Malta.
