This video provides information about the SEI's financial simulator, FinSim, which models merchants, processors, banks, and customers that are all part of the credit card transaction systems used in production today. The video provides a demonstration of how the simulation works, with virtual banks housing accounts and process transactions within FinSim, and with a web front end to view individual account logs. Merchants can initiate transactions through the credit card processor, which then facilitates the authorization requests between banks and customers. FinSim provides an environment where cybersecurity professionals can develop the skills they need to address the unique issues that arise in the financial sector.
