Online PR News – 16-May-2011 – – New York, NY, May 14, 2011 -- Compliance Search has recently published an article written by Edcomm Banker’s Academy’s President and Founder, Dr. Linda Eagle on the subject of Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Fraud. Published on May 9, “Preventing EFT Fraud with Training: Reducing Risk to Financial Institutions and Their Customers” addresses the increasing number of frauds involving money laundering and identity theft in EFTs and the importance of training bank staff on how to the identify risks associated with EFT transactions.

Both personal banking and business customers must be particularly cautious when using their online bank accounts, and must know which steps to take to prevent fraud. Many issues can be avoided by training employees on how to advise customers to complete simple actions to protect themselves against risk. Changing passwords frequently, using encryption, using strong anti-virus protection software, being cautious when opening emails and links and closely reviewing statements are all smart ways for customers to protect their financial resources.

According to Dr. Eagle, financial intuitions offering EFT products and services to their customers must have sound AML policies, procedures and processes in place to manage the risks associated with EFTs. “Without these regulations, the risks of electronic banking can result in financial loss and reputation damage for the financial institution through fraud, disclosure of customer information or corruption of data,” said Dr. Eagle.
