Program Description

IT and security professionals are continually searching for ways to train staff to protect the institution against computer fraud. This program provides the education they need. Even those who believe “it can’t happen here” will learn exactly how these attacks can happen and how to prevent them. This webinar shows how penetration companies, criminals, and even the cleaning crew can compromise your credit union.  The modus operandi used to attack account holders, the credit union, or call center and trick you into providing sensitive information are discussed.  We will demonstrate how not to fall victim to a social engineering attack, what a deceptive answer really sounds like, and how to handle these attacks on your front line or call center. 

Using actual stories of financial institutions who found themselves compromised, we illustrate how poorly followed procedures open the door to high dollar losses. Staff who are not familiar with the techniques used by social engineers will fall victim, even if they follow proper procedures.
