EBanking Fraud Alabama

In today’s digital world, with more and more customers preferring eBanking services, to receive their pay checks through direct deposit, transferring funds, and online payments,  an ever growing threat of ebanking fraud in Alabama is emerging.

EBanking, unfortunately has risks. Cybercriminals have discovered ways to steal your customer’s hard-earned money. Once these hackers have compromised accounts, they transfer your customer's money right into their own accounts. Ebanking fraud in Alabama is on the rise everyday.

Cybercriminals like to 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.

To avoid Ebanking fraud in Alabama, there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution. Although, you may have installed a firewall, or have anti-virus protection to mitigate eBanking fraud, there still is more you need to do, to protect your customers from being the next victims of eBanking fraud, than just complying 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
