Even as hackers and malware make international headlines, banks have resources to keep the bad guys at bay--some of them as simple, yet powerful, as keeping fresh data backups under lock and key. Sean Cassidy, the co-founder and chief technology officer of DefenseStorm, walks us through what banks can do to stay a step ahead of cyber threats.
"A good way to illustrate the power of blockchain is by viewing it as an extension of 'software eating the world,'" one expert says. (Getty Images/Science Photo Library RF)The financial world, which is as rich with jargon as Warren Buffett is with Benjamins, has a way of heaping its verbal tangles on befuddled investors. Like: bespoke tranche. And: UAFRS adjusted financials. And: EBITA, which might be more easily taken for a Broadway musical than something shareholders should scrutinize.
FinTech is no longer a matter of anti-bank disruption, and sometimes it takes a former entrepreneur in the space to best communicate that message. Andres Wolberg-Stok, who serves as Citi FinTech's global head of policy, shares how his bank makes high-tech work for in-house teams and customers alike.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
