The modern world is one of high-speed connectivity. The personal computer and the Internet have brought the world into our homes and businesses, a world with access to a vast amount of information, services and forums for individuals anywhere in the world to meet one another in a relatively anonymous environment.
No longer do we live in a world where we are only affected by those who live or work in close proximity to us. Our desire to be connected to the world has allowed the world to connect to us. Consequently, the fields are ripe for harvest for criminals who want to access systems anywhere in the world and are creative enough to do it.
It would be hard to overstate the impact computers have had on our personal lives and businesses. They complement nearly every aspect of business whether simple or complex and facilitate processes like phone answering systems, office productivity and business data management to Personal Information Management; the computer has had a profound change on how we do business.
It's no surprise that in recent years the financial industry has expended great effort in using these new technologies to deliver highly desirable products like Online Banking/Cash Management, Remote Deposit Capture and ACH/Wire Transfer Services to their customers. New products are being routinely added that enhance the customer's experience and productivity. Unfortunately, the sword of progress is a double edged one that cuts both ways.
Cybercriminals continue to expand their bag of tricks by using many new methods and gaining better ways to gather information that can be used to steal personal and corporate user credentials that provide access to assets that they can exploit.
