The employers insist that citizens must make more efforts to be alert to the dangers of the Internet
The ECSCan employer’s association that brings together several banks and savings banks in its ranks, has prepared a report in which it states that The Spanish population needs greater awareness and more training about risks on the Internet regarding scams and theft of bank details. The entity, in fact, highlights that citizens should be more alert in the face of these dangers.
CECA focuses on customers
As the CECA has revealed in a report after a citizen cybersecurity survey, the average population is not as aware of the risks of cybersecurity. And, although 85% of the population would have heard about cybersecurity or its importance, only 57% pay attention to this issue.
On the other hand, the young population is the most self-confident when surfing the Internet, something that, due to overconfidence, can also pose a risk. In fact, they are more and more young people have been victims of bank robbery and fraud crimes, due to the development of new spoofing techniques. Therefore, the entire population must be aware that navigation is never completely safe, and take basic security measures to avoid being a victim of these crimes.
Readings about the CECA report
There is no doubt that the data handled by the CECA with irrefutable regarding a reality that affects bank customers. However, it is also a fact that in this report the responsibility as a potential victim is focused on users, largely ignoring the failures of banking entities by not verifying that the user in question is the account holder when a scam occurs.
For this reason, the European Union recently announced a change in rules for banks, giving financial institutions the responsibility of improve your security mechanisms, especially in relation to user verification when a significant money theft is going to be carried out. By 2025, all European banks will have to have advanced in this path of cybersecurity if they don’t want to be fined by Europe. That, along with the facilities to cancel services, will be the next duties of the banks.
