By |March 11th, 2020|Categories: Information Security News|Tags: , |

It’s not only a moral obligation for an institution to advise its account holders on protection of their identity and assets; it is absolutely recommended by myriad experts, sources, and FFIEC guidelines which state that financial institutions should have a policy within the Information Security Program to govern “Customer Awareness” (FFIEC Information Security Booklet, II.C.16).  Financial institutions should comply with that policy, providing some type of ongoing training to [...]

More and more institutions are now payment card issuers.  Ten years ago, in-house payment card production was almost always an outsourced function within community financial institutions (FIs), but that’s no longer the case.  As currently observed,  more than 40% of our FI clients have now implemented in-house card printing and/or embossing (personalization) solutions for various reasons.  The most prevalent of those reasons are competitive in nature; to provide customers [...]
