Many of us have been victims of a fraud attack—often, multiple times in one year. Unfortunately, our growing dependence on social media, mobile and connected devices, and technology in general has seemingly opened up new vulnerabilities for criminals to exploit. Cybersecurity breaches and fraud attacks are now the norm, woven intricately into the fabric of our lives. How do we minimize and counter fraud attacks and security breaches? Do we fight cyber threats to win the fraud battle, or vice versa?
Several experts weigh in on these questions in the next episode of Cyber Beat Live.
Here are some other questions that are part of the discussion:
What are the key cybersecurity challenges plaguing the financial services industry?
Pundits say that the most common way hackers break into a network is by stealing valid login credentials. Are increasing numbers of cybersecurity gaps promoting more fraudulent acts?
How do we minimize the possibility of insiders deliberately or willfully sharing their credentials with would-be hackers?
Are millennials more likely to create cybersecurity and fraud risks?
At what point should the fraud prevention planning team involve the cybersecurity team? Why?
How should financial institutions address the implications of ever-rising Internet and mobile usage by customers?
What are some best practices that can be employed to mitigate cybersecurity risks and counter fraud?
