My Bank Account Was Hacked. Is Online Banking Safe?

Online banking has added a new level of convenience to personal and business banking. But the convenience comes with a cost: it is now easier for hackers to breach your bank accounts.

Is My Bank Account Compromised? Are Bank Apps Safe?

Detecting and protecting against online banking fraud is a serious challenge. The ever-evolving approaches hackers develop for cyberattacks can make cyber security seem quite daunting to a small or midsized business. A significant increase in remote access work has dramatically increased online vulnerabilities. Unless proper defenses are in place, one may not know if their private banking information has been hacked until it’s too late. It does no good to discover a banking cyberattack after your accounts have been emptied and your financial data compromised. You may use online banking apps safely, with the proper protection in place. There are many options available to ensure online security, including Virtual Private Networks. VPNs can secure online transactions by creating a secure network within the network. Professional cyber security experts can help you determine which combination of defenses is best for your type of business.
