Cyberthreats and the finance sector The financial sector has long been heavily targeted by cybercriminals. Over the years the number of attacks that involved extortion social engineering and credential-stealing malware has surged rapidly. This means that financial institutions should strive to familiarize themselves with the threats and the agents behind them. Here are seven new threats and tactics techniques and procedures that security professionals should know about. Extortion Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks which are typically delivered from massive botnets of zombie computers or internet of things (IoT) devices have been used to bring down banking networks. This occurs when a targeted server or system is overwhelmed by multiple compromised networks. Its essentially like a traffic jam clogging up the highway preventing regular traffic from arriving at its intended destination. Some cybercriminals are relentless with DDoS attacks and follow them up with cyberextortion demanding payment in return for release from costly downtime. Banks cannot defend against these attacks alone so they rapidly share information among themselves through organizations such as FS-ISAC4 and rely upon the ability of their internet service provider to handle and redirect massive quantities of traffic. Social media attacks This happens when fraudsters use fake profiles to gather information for social engineering purposes. Thankfully with new regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) big companies like Facebook and Twitter have significantly enhanced their security and privacy policy with regards to their data handling practices. The unprecedented reach of social media is something companies cannot afford to ignore because of the possible implications a data breach can have on businesses. Spear phishing Spear phishing is an attack where cybercriminals send out targeted emails ostensibly from a known or trusted sender in order to trick the recipient into giving out confidential information. Over the years hackers have upped their game and cast a bigger net targeting unwitting employees to wire money. This attack is called business email compromise (BEC) where a fraudster will purport to be a CEO or CFO and request for large money transfers to bogus accounts. Point-of-sale (PoS) malware PoS malware targets PoS terminals to steal customer payment (especially credit card) data from retail checkout systems. Cybercriminals use a memory scraper that operates by instantly detecting unencrypted type 2 credit card data which is then sent to the attackers computer to be sold on underground sites. ATM malware GreenDispenser is an ATM-specific malware that infects ATMs and allows criminals to extract large sums of money while avoiding detection. Recently reverse ATM attacks have also emerged. Here PoS terminals are compromised and money mules reverse transactions after money is withdrawn or sent to another bank account. In October 2015 issuers were mandated to shift to EMV or Chip-and-PIN system to address the weakness of the previous payment system. Credential theft Dridex a well-known credential-stealing software is a banking Trojan that is generally distributed through phishing emails. It infects computers steal credentials and obtain money from victims bank accounts. Other sophisticated threats Various data breach methods can be combined to extract data on a bigger scale. Targeting multiple geographies and sectors at once this method normally involves an organized crime syndicate or someone with a highly sophisticated setup. For example the group Carbanak primarily targeted financial institutions by infiltrating internal networks and installing software that would drain ATMs of cash. Additionally with the rise of cryptocurrency cybercriminals are utilizing cryptojacking a method that involves the secret use of devices to mine cryptocurrency. The creation of defensive measures requires extensive knowledge of the lurking threats and our team of experts is up to date on the latest security information.

Exactly. A company that had a data breach in which they stored not only credit card insecurely but they also captured and retained a PIN # with that card... they want to scan your driver's license. Not going to happen with me. But yes, it's not a state law in PA.
