Improved collaboration and communication between small businesses and financial institutions is the first step toward improving online security, says Mark Patterson, an ACH fraud victim. What else would help?
U.S. and European institutions can learn from DBS Bank's example. In response to a rash of fraudulent withdrawals that cost accountholders $1 million, the bank is launching a new SMS/text alert service for ATM transactions.
Cyberhackers are increasing their efforts to target online credentials. And phishing attacks waged against accountholders at Chase in the U.S. and Barclays in the U.K. have made it clear that banking accounts are the target.
ACH/Wire fraud was the big story in 2010 and helped influence the updated FFIEC Authentication Guidance. So, have incidents of corporate account takeover decreased in 2011, or are we just hearing less about them?
The scheme allegedly involved insiders recruited by fraudsters to steal information about more than 200 individuals and organizations. How can institutions improve background screening and prevent fraud?
As 2012 nears and federal regulators prepare to examine financial institutions for conformance with the FFIEC Authentication Guidance, just how prepared are banks and credit unions? The answer may surprise you.
