In response to these emerging threats, regulators and industry bodies are developing standards which can be difficult to implement without having a robust automation strategy.

Furthermore, they need to examine the current threat landscape and how the financial industry responding to these changes, including Google’s proposal to shorten public TLS certificate validity to only 90 days and the looming threat of quantum computing. But where do they start?
