Online bank fraud has been described as epidemic, with numbers
that are staggering — it’s estimated that U.S. banks lose $1.5
billion to phishing attacks annually. Consider also that mobile
devices are now ubiquitous and hackers are getting ever-more
sophisticated in their ability to gain access to sensitive data
and it’s clear that there is a need for proactive IT security
offense and defense to stop attacks including phishing, malware,
coordinated denial of service attacks, hacktivist breeches and
more. The threats to the banking sector are multiple and
significant — both financially and reputationally. Today’s bank
customer is rightfully concerned about online banking fraud and
studies show that the majority of customers would change banks if
they became a victim of fraud at their current institution.
Security breeches not only cost significant dollars, but they
also destroy erode consumer trust. Being proactive is key.
