My company was hit again with a Business Phish this February targeting a new hire, same as last time.  This is why it so important to have cyber training the first training a new employee receives.  In my cases, new employees were targeted within a few weeks of coming on board.  In each case, the new-be receives an email from an executive manager.  The request is simple, get bank cards, gift cards and so on and email back the transaction numbers so the receiver can cash in and the new-be just lost hundreds of dollars or more.  This is a “Business Phish” and the simplest to execute.

Living in a business world of confidential data, documents and managing who can have access to the same, is a daunting task. With the world of identity theft simple logins and passwords don’t cut it anymore. People who are trusted with securing the perimeter need more help and that change is coming quickly in the form of “Two Factor Authentication” (2FA). 2FA is not new. What’s new is its requirement in daily business application logon. Example, today case managers login to their solution, enter their password and go to work. What’s coming as “Best Practices” is introducing a second step of authentication such as Smartphone texting access codes or emails. Users, in addition to having a password, will need a device to navigate the second step before they can go to work.

In the spirit of Tech Tock, I’m going to discuss Cyber Security from a compliance perspective.  This is still about technology and does have a sense of urgency for financial services professional.  The trend I’ve witnessed for the last few years is pushing downward into the supply chain, compliance.  Cyber Security companies believe they have a good handle on defensive, layering, real-time protection and that the problem today is pushing down into the supply chain and continues to close vulnerabilities.
