Digitally stored signature files were stolen from customers PCs’ hard-drive

xEver more financial institutions such as Bank of America – thought SMS would help but, Jyske Bank, Sydbank and UBS want their customers to use e-banking facilities. This helps reduce transaction costs for the bank and client while, hopefully, making it also more convenient for clients.Nonetheless, these banks including Sparekasserne, Nordea or Danske Bank may have to improve their security levels to safeguard their customer’s trust in the security and reliability of internet banking.The experts from CyTRAP Labs were asked about their expert opinion on these issues, particularly as they pertain to Denmark and its 70 cases of fraud during 2007.
