Bank hack webinar readied

On Monday, February 4, banks learned of a large-scale breach of data involving approximately 4,600 bank executives. The hacktivist group known as “Anonymous” has claimed responsibility for this incident and has posted data publicly on the internet. It has since been confirmed that the publicized information was obtained from the Federal Reserve's Emergency Communications System (ECS).

Included in this breach was not only public bank and executive information, but sensitive information including cell and home phone numbers, user accounts, hashed passwords with salts, bank and personal email addresses, and external IP addresses.

What does this mean for the institutions that were included on this list? What does this mean for financial institution information security in general? SBS will address these questions, as well as provide some additional details about the breach and why this hack is more important than you may realize during this 60-minute webinar.

Topics addressed include:

  • What happened during the breach?
  • Who is “Anonymous”?
  • Statistics about the breach
  • Why did they do it?
  • What does it mean for you and your bank?
  • What does it mean globally?
  • What immediate steps should you take now to protect your bank?

This webinar is on Thursday, Feb. 14 at 2:00 p.m.
