The Open Banking initiative along with regulations such as the Revised Payments Service Directive (PSD2) were introduced to promote innovation, increase competition, and encourage inclusion, with a view to make banking more customer centric. However, by compelling banks to provide secure access of customer data to third party providers (TPPs), a new challenge, one that of cyber security, has emerged. The possibility of offering responsive customer-centric solutions in partnership with FinTechs using open APIs is overshadowed by concerns regarding security and compliance. Due to increased API integration with TPPs, banking systems are inadvertently exposed to threats and vulnerabilities beyond their risk appetite.
