The rapid growth of information and communications technology (ICT) and implementation of financial technology together make it more convenient for enterprises to do business. Meanwhile, the innovations change the ecosystem of financial industry but also present potential threats. Cloud computing, mobile working application, and smart city system are being deployed to enhance life and working conditions for citizens. Nevertheless, cyber-attacks are increasing while security awareness and protection measures need to be improved. In this paper, security theory and practices of the use of cloud, mobile apps, and smart city system are to discuss. Connected with practice of practitioners in the industry, ideas of security architectures are presented and featured as key points of the financial security 3.0 framework.
