Upcoming Virtual Seminars

Cyber Crime and Information Security Trend
Tuesday, August 26 at 2 – 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

Businesses that typically have not thought themselves at risk for cyber attacks are being targeted like never before. Online payment fraud targeting wire transfers, ACH, and credit cards is increasing at an alarming rate. In addition, hackers are increasingly targeting personal financial information to sell to organized crime groups. Banks have become increasingly sophisticated and savvy with their defensive measures and hackers have learned that targeting them directly has become increasingly difficult. Bank customers by comparison are often much less prepared and offer easier targets. Attackers therefore are now targeting small businesses in an effort to access bank funds by attacking these online payment methods. Losses are significant, often uninsured, and in some cases even result in business failure. This session will describe the threat landscape, discuss common attack methods, and provide critical insight as to how businesses can effectively address this emerging threat. We will also discuss a holistic view of IT security and control that will remain relevant regardless of emerging attack trends.

Overview of threat landscape (Types of fraud involved and factors that allow fraud to succeed); Overview of information security posture at bank customers & top methods of entry (Hacking, spear phishing and online banking Trojans); Regulator response (Update authentication guidance from FFIEC); Training bank customers (Nine essential things customers need to do to protect themselves).
