Since 2004, October has been recognized as National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The effort strives to ensure that Americans have the resources they need to stay protected online. For 2020, the Federal Trade Commission reported that American consumers lost 3.3 billion dollars due to phishing schemes and fraud – a staggering amount!
This year, we have partnered with the American Bankers Association (ABA) to share information about common phishing scams surrounding online banking. From outlining red flags to learning about scamming identifiers, the ABA’s campaign “Banks Never Ask That” looks to provide you with the facts you need to know about scams and online banking.
