pydev list is for development of future Python and Cpython. Questions
about using current Python should be directed to python-list or other
forums such as Stackoverflow or specialized lists.
I know that Python is heavily used in the American finacial sector but
not anything about specific security practices. I expect python-list to
have readers that do know something. When you post, try to be a bit
more specific about particular threat models.
