Problem Statement: Financial institutions are tasked to ensure security protocols are in place and their software is up to date to protect customer's personal information as well as their financial information. These institutions implement protection software that is supposedly designed to mitigate data breaches and hacks against its infrastructure. Yet a closer examination of various data breaches and hacks reveals that only implementing protection software does not fully protect a financial institutions information and infrastructure. Data breaches often occur even if these institutions have protection software in place and sometimes the breach can go unnoticed for months before the hacker's strike. Thus, unless the financial institutions provide more than software protection, a customer's personal information as well as their financial information is at a risk of being compromised. The intent of this research paper is to gather data from various financial institutions and develop a survey instrument to measure other types of security besides protection software that is currently utilized.
