The digitalisation of the banking sector has long been a work in progress, but 2018 brought rapid acceleration and a new sense of urgency to the transformation. As more and more banks funnel larger sums of money into digital solutions, the number of physical branches around the world continues to shrink.

Across the board, banks are now racing to embody the modern institutions that consumers are demanding, all while making sense of new regulations and technologies. Only a select few have managed to come out on top, which we celebrate in the World Finance Digital Banking Awards 2018.

One of the biggest challenges for banks in 2018 was responding to a number of high-profile cyberattacks that have taken place over of late. As cyberthreats become more sophisticated and complex, bank security is not only threatened by new technologies, but also by the legacy infrastructure that many institutions still rely on.
