Hackers have learned to profit from their activities. While breaches at large companies dominate the news, this threat is significant for the small organizations as well. Virtually every industry segment is affected, including small businesses. Any organization that stores personal financial information on the network or conducts online cash management is a potential target. New trends in ransomware have shown the ability to cripple entire networks. As a result, any organization that relies on its technology being available is a potential target. Payment fraud targeting wire transfers, automatic clearing house payments, and credit cards is also increasing at an alarming rate. Historically, hacking has been a high risk issue only for banks, but attackers are now targeting all businesses in an effort to access bank funds via online payment methods.

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Define cyber crime
  • Identify payment fraud trends and tactics hackers are using
  • Recognize how and why hackers are targeting you
  • Describe recent cyber crime litigation issues
  • Describe common information security weaknesses
  • Explain solutions to help minimize risk
