EZShield Fraud Protection partners to help Financial Institutions serve their customers.
With the Target breach still on our minds, and the ongoing news of hacks and data breaches exposing the personal information of thousands—and even millions—there continues to be uneasiness amongst consumers. Anxiety, compounded by a lack of clarity, about what consumers can do to better protect their data and identities.
The reality is that consumers trust and look to their financial institution as the primary source for this protection.
Microsoft will discontinue support of Windows XP in April 2014, a decision announced in an official statement in October 2013. This means that Microsoft will no longer monitor malfunctions and potential vulnerabilities of the XP operating system. As a result of this discontinuation, Microsoft will also cease to supply patches to protect against attacks to PCs of XP users. Without these XP updates and patches, PCs are more vulnerable to criminal attacks. For PC users, the solution is a simple upgrade to Windows 7 or 8 as soon as possible. But for the financial industry it is a bit more complicated.
