Context

In the context of the increasing use of mobile banking apps and the rising threat of cyberattacks, our bank faces several challenges:

  • The need to protect customer data and transactions from evolving security threats.
  • The importance of maintaining customer trust and confidence in our mobile banking platform.
  • The regulatory requirements and industry standards related to mobile banking security.

Objective

The primary objective of this project is to develop a comprehensive security enhancement roadmap for our mobile banking application. This includes the following specific goals:

  • Identify potential vulnerabilities: Conduct a thorough security assessment of the current mobile banking app to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses.
  • Propose security features and improvements: Based on the assessment findings, propose security enhancements, such as two-factor authentication, biometric login, encryption improvements, and anti-fraud measures.
  • Prioritize security enhancements: Prioritize the proposed security enhancements based on various factors, including the severity of vulnerabilities, customer needs, regulatory requirements, and technical feasibility.
  • Create a roadmap: Develop a clear and actionable roadmap that outlines the timeline and milestones for implementing each security enhancement. This roadmap should balance immediate security needs with the long-term vision for the mobile banking app.

Format

To deliver on this project, the following formats are expected:

  • Written Security Assessment Report: A detailed report outlining the current state of mobile banking security, including identified vulnerabilities and weaknesses.
  • Prioritized Security Enhancement Roadmap: A roadmap document that lists security enhancements in order of priority, with clear timelines, milestones, and dependencies.
  • Presentation: A presentation to the executive team that explains the rationale behind the roadmap, the expected impact on customer trust and security, and the importance of investing in these security measures.
