EBanking Fraud Atlanta

Infosight Security Awareness

EBanking fraud in Atlanta is on the rise, with more and more of your customers choosing eBanking over traditional banking practices. They find it more convenient to use direct deposit, pay bills and send money electronically, rather than using checks. All of these services come with risks.

There are cybercriminals who have found ways to steal your customers' money right out of their bank accounts. These thieves have a variety of tools, including phishing emails, compromised legitimate websites, fake friend requests on social sites, and malware to obtain your customers’ bank logon credentials.

Once they have obtained the information they need to commit their eBanking fraud in Atlanta, all they need to do, is just transfer funds out of your customer's account, and into theirs. These hackers usually target small-to-medium-sized businesses, because these businesses often do not use dual controls on their accounts, nor have they adopted a strong information security posture to mitigate eBanking fraud in Atlanta.

Businesses need to secure a strong and effective security solution, so as to make it hard for these eBanking frauds to continue. Each organization has unique business functions that require appropriate security measures to be in place, to not only to protect their organization from eBanking fraud, but to comply with industry standards, ever-changing federal regulations and state privacy laws.

In an effort to protect both consumers and businesses from eBanking fraud, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) has implemented new security guidelines for financial institutions in January 2012. These guidelines describe the measures financial institutions should take to protect Internet banking customers from eBanking fraud and other forms of financial fraud. Three key components were addressed:

    1. Risk Assessments covering changes in threats, technology, and customer adoption of eBanking; transaction volume; actual incidents of security breaches, ID theft or eBanking fraud
    2. Layered Security and Anomaly Detection through Multi-Factor Authentication
    3. Customer Security Awareness and Education
