Research

We emphasize and encourage links between academic researchers and practitioners at financial institutions to bring theoretical techniques to bear on real-world issues.

Cyber Security and Fraud

Cyber security practices and insights on latest methods are critical elements that need to be identified, studied and understood. Fraud, money laundering, tax evasion, terrorist financing as well as fraudulent insurance claims are just some of the criminal actions the sector must also be vigilant in opposing.

We expose our members to industry experts and equip them with knowledge to help them mitigate threats, identify consumer trends and capitalize on new opportunities in technology. GRI collaborates with authorities leading the charge in combating these activities to share their expertise with members to aid in developing their response capabilities as well as improving loss rates and operational efficiency.

The Risk to Client’s Financial Data

It has been said that data is the new oil, and if that is the case, your clients could be sitting on a significant unclaimed reservoir. Helping clients claim their rightful ownership of data assets could enable them to both harvest value and enhance their cyber security.

Systemic Cyber Preparedness

Cyber intrusion and cyber resilience are topics receiving tremendous attention, discussion and action currently and for good reason. Financial firms fend off millions of cyber threats daily. This paper frames the learnings from the most recent efforts to combat global, systemic risk – the 2008 Global Financial Crisis.

National Approach to Cyber Intrusion

This paper explores the national level cyber security infrastructure within Canada and the United Kingdom as it relate to financial services. While national priorities, timing, and approach will always vary to some extent, we believe it to be a fair comparison given both countries are described as the third and fourth largest cybersecurity innovation hubs in the world.

Post-Quantum Key Exchange for the Internet and the Open Quantum Safe Project

Designing public key cryptosystems that resist attacks by quantum computers is an important area of current cryptographic research and standardization. To retain con dentiality of today’s communications against future quantum computers, applications and protocols must begin exploring the use of quantum-resistant key exchange and encryption.

A Resource Estimation Framework for Quantum Attacks Against Cryptographic Functions – Part 2 (RSA and ECC)

This report, “A Resource Estimation Framework for Quantum Attacks Against Cryptographic Functions” provides our next update on our ongoing work related to estimating the real-world effort it will take for a quantum computer to compromise specific cryptographic functions at the foundation of protecting our ICT infrastructure.

Cyber Risk & Security

On April 11th, Duo Security and the Global Risk Institute (GRI) co-hosted an executive breakfast in Toronto to provide an update on current security trends and key information that leaders need to know.

A Methodology for Quantum Risk Assessment

Quantum computing is a growing technology that is rapidly changing how electronic communications and digital transactions will take place in the near future. In this article, we look at how organizations can investigate and mitigate the risks associated with the changes that will be brought about by this emerging technology.

Quantum Computing and Cyber-security

Emerging quantum computing technologies threaten to undermine even the most sophisticated cybersecurity systems installed by businesses and governments

Cyber Risk and Security in Canada

Brain O'Donnell and Richard Nesbitt

Canada can become a haven against cyber attacks if we invest in and further coordinate efforts

Quantum Threat and Mitigation

Quantum Threat and Mitigation Emerging quantum technologies threaten the foundational tools and systems used by financial institutions. The risks include widespread compromise of private information, loss of trust in financial systems, and the breakdown of information systems upon which institutions rely for core business functions. Although the threat may be a few years away, developing… View Article
