ACH Fraud Atlanta

Infosight Security Awareness

With our increasing digital economy, your organization needs to protect itself from ACH fraud in Atlanta. Today, it has become so easy for your customers to choose direct deposit, electronic bill paying, and transferring of monies.

But with ACH fraud in Atlanta on the rise, you need to make sure that your organization is protecting its customers' vital information and data. It is unfortunate, but the fact is, cybercriminals have discovered how to steal the hard-earned money of your customers. Once these hackers have breached a system, it is easy for them to commit ACH fraud - transferring money out of the bank accounts of your customers, and into theirs.

Most cybercriminals target small-to-medium-sized businesses for their ACH fraud in Atlanta, due to the fact that these businesses often do not use dual controls on their accounts, nor have they adopted a stronger information security posture to mitigate ACH fraud.

Creating a strong and secure system is not a “one-size-fits-all” solution. As you know, each organization has its own functions that require security measures to comply with industry standards, ever-changing federal regulations, and state privacy laws.

With ACH fraud, cyber criminals can empty a business banking account in a matter of minutes. To make matters worse, banks often have a hard time spotting ACH fraud transactions because the volume of money moving through the network is simply overwhelming.

To safeguard their customers from ACH fraud, financial institutions have invested a great deal of time, energy and finances into combining a variety of technologies into a layered security approach. However, fraudsters are using a variety of techniques in an attempt to thwart these security solutions in order to commit ACH fraud. They understand that if you can’t hack the technology, you can always hack the user. They use:

    • Phishing emails to inject malware on the customer’s computer
    • Mobile malware to take control of the victim’s phone
    • Malicious websites that can distribute malware just by visiting them
    • Social engineering ploys to trick bank customers into divulging sensitive information
    • Free WiFi hotspots to intercept traffic and infect vulnerable devices
    • And more

ACH fraud is very easy to execute. All the fraudster needs is a bank account number and a bank routing number to initiate payments for purchases or to pay a debt by giving these numbers to the vendor.
