Upcoming Virtual Seminars
Cyber Crime and Information Security
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).
