Financial institutions, commercial enterprises and government organisations are all prime targets for cybercrime. Malicious software, or malware, is the primary attack tool used by cybercriminals to execute account takeover attacks, steal credentials and personal information, and initiate fraudulent transactions. The attack tactics, or crime logic, are constantly becoming more sophisticated so they can continue to exploit human and system weaknesses. Fraud-, risk- and IT-security professionals are looking to establish an effective defence against these attacks.
IBM Security Trusteer solutions have been helping to protect users against cybercrime since 2006. Based on our accumulated experience with hundreds of customers, thousands of fraud cases and millions of protected endpoints, we have identified the key principles and best practices for selecting cybercrime-prevention solutions.
This white paper discusses key considerations and best practices to help organizations achieve effective and sustainable cybercrime prevention.
