A common refrain from community banks and credit unions is that since they are not experiencing a fraud attack at the moment, they don’t see any need to invest in fraud protection.

It also ignores a growing, if unfortunate, precedent – that losses from cyberattacks number in the billions of dollars annually (one report put it as high as $445 billion), and it continues to rise every year. To read the full Easy Solutions white paper, please click here.
