We surveyed over 16 million fraud victims in the past year, which made us conclude that EMV chip cards are tightening the security because less and less POS frauds are reported. This POS fraud decrease is having an unwanted effect: more than 80% of total card fraud attacks are the card-not-present type.
Another important topic of our fraud report is: Identity Fraud, this type of fraud have seen an increase of 8% last year totaling 16.7 million victims. The upwards trend is because of growth in existing non-card fraud and account takeover (ATO) fraud.
The most used method of an ATO is that in which a cybercriminal hijack victim’s account, then it uses it to commit the crime and immediately erase any changes to mislead the security experts and the victim, making them unaware of the crime.
This type of ATO fraud had made over $5.1 billion for the crooks in 2017 alone, which represent an increase of 120% from 2016.
Mobile phones are not excluded from our report because they are attractive to cybercriminals, which is making them want to hijack as many as they can. Then they extract and use personal information from them, information that is later used for conducting fraudulent transactions.
We think that companies have to treat this matter seriously and take a stand because is not anymore something you can have your customer service people work in in their spare time, protecting against fraud has become a full-time job.
This is the top 5 security pieces of advice that every user should use to protect himself from fraud:
– Always enable two-factor authentication if it is available. One time PINs and passwords are outdated measures of security. Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator are excellent two-factor authentication tools that should be used as often as possible.
– Always review your mobile security, nowadays phone have the same capabilities as PCs and laptops. Don’t let any of them unprotected and still use a top antivirus for an extra layer of protection.
– Use a security freeze on your credit reports. This will keep any cybercriminals away from your financial data.
– Always use account alerts. This alerts will notify you in seconds if something unwanted is happening in your account.
– Remember to use lockdown feature for online transactions. This action also inform you if online purchases are made and will send alerts if it passes an absolute dollar limit.

Most of the companies don't care about cybersecurity until they suffer a breach.
A healthy company must perform a penetration test from time to time. The penetration test must execute against all the assets of the company, including the workers who are the most vulnerable to the social engineering attacks.
A penetration test can be done either by a security specialist from inside of the company or by hiring an external cyber security company who can take care of everything.
Besides penetration test, a company must have a minimum healthy cybersecurity system installed like antivirus or firewall.
