This American Banker webcast, sponsored by IBM, provides new insight into cybercrime and fraud prevention.
Financial institutions have invested heavily in fraud prevention technologies and programs. However, sophisticated organized crime syndicates continue to successfully attack financial institutions and their customers. These criminals adapt quickly by using advanced technology and with ever changing attack vectors to exploit information security and fraud protection gaps across payment types, banking channels, and organizational boundaries. Traditional fraud prevention technologies are simply not capable of detecting and preventing account takeover and advanced malware attacks. A new approach to counter fraud is needed.
Attacks on financial services institutions are growing in both quantity and sophistication. Our new State of the Internet/Security report studies criminal behavior across this advanced and expansive financial services attack economy: from a popular authentication mechanism for staging credential stuffing attacks to the use of stolen identities to cash out ill-gotten gains. The report identifies leading DDoS and application-layer attack vectors, lucrative phishing variants, and how criminals stage decoy attacks to distract from their real targets. Attacks that prove successful in financial services often move on to other industries. Download the report, and see what petabytes of data tell us.
The financial services industry is one of the largest and most
sought-after targets for attackers. This particular industry revolves
around trust and security, and because of this, these elements are
quite often the key focal point for criminals.
Successful attacks can quickly translate into the dissemination of
massive amounts of personal information and monetary gains
by the attacker. Criminals targeting the financial services industry
do so by leveraging various attack surfaces, such as people,
processes, applications, or systems.
Regardless of where the financial institutions are located in
the world, staying aware of the forefront of new attack trends
is imperative for keeping their systems and customers safe.
Understanding the ecosystem of attacks, how different layers
interact, and the booming economy spawned by it gives financial
services organizations the edge they need.
Financial institutions need to consider a broad array of key business case components, beyond fraud loss reduction and fraud-management operating costs, when examining the business ramifications of various fraud-prevention technology approaches.

The world is moving at an increasingly accelerated pace. In this new Right-Now Economy, the rampant spread of
payments fraud remains one of the biggest challenges for e-commerce and financial institutions. The worldwide
e-commerce market was valued at $2.3 trillion for 2017, and 2018 should see even more growth, and along with it,
more fraud. In the US alone, the cost of e-commerce fraud rose from $10 billion in 2014 to roughly $19 billion in 2018.
The digital financial services world has created an amplified set of challenges for the data center and network. Its role in enabling the success of the wider institution has become even more critical, but to deliver this it needs to provide a higher level of performance with increased agility, while maintaining high levels of efficiency and security.
This is forcing institutions to transform their underlying IT capabilities, with the need to simplify the network, obtain more flexible connectivity, automate IT operations, and enable centralized control and administration being core strategies in this respect. As shown in Figure 8, this is driving a number of requirements for the future network. Key considerations for financial institutions in architecture design and vendor selection should be around moving toward a software-defined, intelligent, cloud-ready, and open network that enables the institution to meet its ICT imperatives and achieve these key ICT strategies.
Each year we examine trends in fraud reported to Q2 by our partner
