Wire Fraud Indiana

Infosight Security Awareness

Wire fraud in Indiana is on the rise and you, as a business, need to do everything you can to protect your customers and their finances. With the growth of eBanking, your customers need to know that their vital information is well protected.

Today, there are a new form of criminals that have powerful tools to help them steal and lie, to get your customer's personal information. These cybercriminals use phishing emails, compromised legitimate websites, fake friend requests on social sites, and malware, with the sole intent of committing wire fraud in Indiana.

All they need to do is obtain the proper information, and they will simply transfer money out of your customer’s bank account, and into theirs. Small-to-medium-sized businesses are the perfect target for them, because these businesses often do not use dual controls on their accounts, nor have they adopted a strong information security posture to mitigate wire fraud in Indiana.

Your business needs to put in place a strong information security program to help prevent this wire fraud in Indiana. Unfortunately, many businesses believe, that as long as they comply with industry standards, ever-changing federal regulations, and state privacy laws, they are keeping their customer's vital data safe. This is not true. Businesses must have the right security in place, to fight off these cybercriminals.

In an effort to protect both consumers and businesses from wire 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 wire 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 wire
    2. Layered Security and Anomaly Detection through Multi-Factor Authentication
    3. Customer Security Awareness and Education

    2. A GAP analysis
    3. A restructuring of your entire risk management program
    4. A Security Review of your eBanking solution including online banking, MFA
