Security firm RSA released the results of their annual online security survey, and the results are interesting. It seems that phishing and other forms of fraud are taking a toll on users.
•91% of account-holders answered that they are willing to start using a new authentication method, beyond the standard ‘username-and-password’, if their banks decided to offer stronger security
•69% of account-holders believe that financial institutions should replace username-and-password log-in with stronger authentication for online banking
•82% account-holders are less likely to respond to an e-mail from their bank due to scams including phishing
Is added security a deciding factor when you choose a bank? Would you like your checking account monitored for possible fraud, much the same way credit cards are monitored today?—MEGHANN MARCO
