Cybersecurity and fraud awareness

Phishing. Pharming. Spoofing. Ransomware. The list of tricks and techniques employed by today’s fraudsters keeps growing. Anyone who spends time online is a target. But the problem is especially acute for people with substantial assets and complex finances. We make protecting your accounts, assets and data from hackers a top priority. And we deploy sophisticated fraud prevention strategies. But you play the most integral part in preventing fraudulent activity and ensuring your own cybersecurity. That’s why we provide educational programs and materials to help you, your family and your business understand emerging threats and stay up to date on fraud protection best practices.

How cyber threats can affect you

You may take steps to ensure your cybersecurity. But your best efforts can be undone in an instant if you aren’t careful. Spoofing is the process of making an email look like it’s from a legitimate sender when it’s actually being sent by someone with malicious intent. Phishing entails asking users for their account details or credit card numbers, with the intent of stealing that information. Pharming involves the creation of web pages that look legitimate but are actually fraudulent. Generally, the fraudsters use these tactics. Cybersecurity best practices such as keeping your operating system and web browser updated are vital for preventing these kinds of fraud. But for cybersecurity to really be effective, you must educate yourself on what to watch out for.
