SECURITY Security Regardless of what type of security is in place for on line banking sites or ATMs, people are able to obtain customer information. Phishing: where someone tries to trick a customer into revealing sensitive information Pharming: where malicious code is introduced into a computer, customers can become victims to identity theft. These issues are often beyond the banks control, as criminals try many tactics to obtain customer information. At ATMs, thieves can also hack the system, so your personal identification number (commonly called a PIN number) and card number are stolen after you use them. 39. SECURITY Nowadays, most of us use the internet. We like to e-mail, chat and have fun online as well as use it to buy and sell things and do our banking. Unfortunately, it also provides opportunities for criminals to: Infect your computer with spyware and steal your identity Mess up your computer with pop-ups and viruses Send you spam and scam e-mails Trick you into visiting fake websites and handing over personal information Hack into your wireless network 40. PROBLEMS Fraud Fraud is a common concern with electronic banking because the security features, such as a password or PIN number can be stolen and used without identification. There are few ways to verify who is making a transaction until it is too late. People can steal a PIN and card number and use it on line without the owners permission. Money transfers can also occur through online banking sites by an outside party. 41. PROBLEMS Customer Service Electronic banking also lacks the one thing most bank institutes thrive on customer service. Electronic banking is conducted by the customer instead of a bank teller, so there is no face-to-face interaction. The customer must seek any additional services or help on by pro-actively contacting the bank. Some customers refuse to use these services because they feel they are entitled to in-person customer service 42. SECRECY Bank secrecy (or bank privacy) is a legal principle under which banks are allowed to protect personal information about their customers, through the use of numbered bank accounts or otherwise. Data protection and privacy policies Every institution already describe their terms and conditions for their services offered. 43. STEPS TAKEN TO BE SECURED 1. Choose the right browser and make sure your PC has installed any antivirus, spyware or firewall to prevent any hackers or stolen data. 2. Update your information from time to time, renew your password. 3. Save all your transaction statement as a proof if any matters arising later. 4. Save all your PIN and personal information and dont reveal to anyone even your spouse. 5. Always check your account balance. MORE. 44.
