FRAUD PREVENTION

Protect Your Business from Other Threats

  • Implement dual control to initiate and release funds transfers, where two employees and two separate computers are required to complete the transfer of funds, either through ACH or wire transfer.
  • Establish appropriate dollar limits for ACH and wire transfers, limiting the exposure in case of unauthorized attempts.
  • Do not open emails from unfamiliar sources, especially those with attachments or links.
  • Maintain current versions of antivirus software, run virus definition updates and virus scans on a regular basis.
  • Review employees' user online banking access activity periodically and remove former employees' accounts from your online banking system immediately.
  • Make your passwords longer, use a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
  • Check for signs that the webpage is secure, for example, a web address that starts with "https" and shows a closed padlock.

Tips

PREVENT IDENTITY THEFT

PREVENT IDENTITY THEFT

  • Keep your personal information private and secure. If you are being asked to provide your personal information, make sure you know you are communicating with someone you know to be valid.  Use a shredder to destroy any personal documents that are no longer useful.
  • Place passwords on your credit card, bank, and phone accounts. Avoid using easily available information such as your birth date, your Social Security number or your phone number.
  • Do not give out personal information over the phone, through the mail, or on the Internet unless you initiated the contact or you are certain you are communicating with someone you know to be valid.
  • Deposit your outgoing mail in post office collection boxes or at your local post office. If you're planning to be away from home and can't pick up your mail, call the U.S. Postal Service at 800.275.8777 to request a vacation hold.
  • To obstruct identity thieves who may pick through your trash or recycling bins to capture your personal information, tear or shred any documents that contain your personal information. To opt out of receiving offers of credit in the mail, call: 888.5.OPTOUT  / 888.567.8688.
  • When going out, carry only the identification information, credit and debit cards that you may actually need.

The Internet Of Things

Technology is making life easier for all of us every day, and chances are, you are already utilizing products that are considered IoT devices. IoT or the Internet of Things, refers to the collection of devices connected and controlled over the Internet.

"Alexa, turn the air down to 72 degrees"

"Hey Google, add milk to my shopping list"

"Hey Siri, play classical music"

...all will become more familiar everyday commands as more households and businesses alike embrace IoT. Recent estimates project the number of Internet connected devices to reach 26 billion by 2020, with some studies suggesting an even higher adoption.

It is exciting to experience these innovative products but there is always the need to be aware of the security risks associated with any internet-connected device.

What are some items that make up the Internet of Things?

IoT products are often referred to as "smart" and include mobile phones, cars, refrigerators, coffee makers, televisions, microwave ovens, fitness bands, thermostats, smart watches, webcams, light switches, door locks, door bells, copy machines, digital assistants and medical devices; almost anything that has an on/off switch and connects to the Internet directly or to is controlled by Internet connected devices.

What are the security risks and concerns of using IoT products?

Many popular IoT products, are manufactured with a goal of convenience for the user through the integration of devices and systems, but not always with security top of mind.

Tracking Your Activity

With your smart phone's range of sensors such as GPS, and connectivity options (Cell, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth), your device can potentially monitor your movements and location, throughout the day. Smart assistants have access to your calendar, contacts, purchase history and more to make your life more convenient.

Tracking Your Home

IoT devices such as Smart Thermostats use sensors, real-time weather forecasts, and occupancy detectors to monitor actual activity in your home. As the smart assistants become "smarter" they record requests to improve responses.

Privacy

IoT devices often sense and collect consumer and personal information and share this with other IoT devices. Have you ever had that feeling you were being followed when you received a notification for a product or service that you had not expressed interest in but it seemed to align with your personal preferences? This may be a sign of IoT sharing.

Not Engineered with Security in Mind

Many manufacturers are designing their products with rigorous security standards. Unfortunately, there are others introducing low-cost, quick-to-market IoT-enabled devices with little to no embedded security defense mechanisms, placing your privacy at risk.

How can you protect yourself in this brave new world of the Internet of Things?

Here are some suggestions:

  1. Do not store personal identifying information on any device.
  2. Ensure your home network only allows access to authorized users. If devices are password-protected, switch to a two-step authentication process and create complex passwords (Password 1234 will not work!). For instance, develop a password with a combination of lower and upper case letters, numbers and symbols or a passphrase, movie or song that you can remember easily but that has been adapted to make it difficult to decipher. For example, "The Wizard of Oz" could be re-configured into the password, Th3WZRD!ov0Z. Be sure to use unique complex passwords on each of your devices and change them every other month. Or if your home network is capable of creating a secure "Guest" wireless network, attach IoT devices to the Guest wireless instead.
  3. Most hacks occur via WiFi or wireless networking, and unsecured WiFi systems are among the easiest to access. The first line of defense against unauthorized access is to make it difficult to gain entry to your network. Again, good password hygiene is imperative.
  4. IoT products from a reputable manufacturer. Thoroughly research any IoT devices you are planning to purchase to determine if the manufacturer conducted comprehensive security testing. Publications such as Consumer Reports often provide detailed reviews of these types of products.
  5. As a consumer, make a point to conduct research and review user agreements (and other fine print), and consent to IoT updates or purchases only when you feel confident in their security. Find out what information is gathered and stored by your device as well as how the manufacturer uses the information. Privacy principles dictate that users should be able to keep control of their data as well as to be able to opt out of the "smart" environment without incurring negative consequences.
  6. Your smart phone is often the device used to manage other IoT devices, opening up an avenue for hackers to gain entrance to your home. Keep your smart phone protected with a strong and unique password that is separate from your internet passwords. Also, install smart phone software updates when they become available.
  7. Use and update anti-virus and anti-malware software on all of your Internet connected devices.

The Internet of Things will never be completely safe; but neither is the world outside of the Internet. Just as you take proper precautions to ensure your house is entirely secure against theft, employ the same types of best practices to defend against a potential data breach.
