Challenge

Frauds and scams are rampant.

Nowadays fraudsters are using various advanced and creative techniques for their own nefarious goals. Phishing, malware, RAT, vishing SIM Swap – and many others – are some of the methods fraudsters try to take the most precious assets. 

Phishing, malware & social engineering are the top 3 cyber security threats in the financial sector. Per PwC’s Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey 2020 – 47% percent of companies experiencing fraud in the past 24 months with a total of $42 B losses. The top 2 frauds were customer fraud (35%) and cybercrime (34%).

These threats – and the data is undeniable – they’re raising across the board. Our research indicates that these types of attacks are usually just a first step in a larger complex scam that can go a long time with a significant impact.

For banks and their users – the threat levels have significantly increased in the years of fastened digitalization. Businesses and users would need to be well aware of them and invest a lot in protection.

Usually, users don’t have the means or the knowledge to properly protect themselves from these threats. Businesses do. And banks should invest more to keep their users, and their most precious assets safe and protected.

Imperfect Solutions

Businesses usually invest in various solutions that protect their perimeter.

Firewalls, scanners, and similar traditional cybersecurity solutions are effective while protecting the business’s infrastructure, strictly under the business domain.

Even though these are important, they have a tough time capturing creative threats, scams and efforts focused on the end-users. Beyond sending an occasional informative email or hosting some prevention advice on an obscure webpage – rarely do businesses focus on the users to solve these types of threats.

The ThreatMark Solution

ThreatMark uses advanced on-page and off-page methods to detect threats in the digital landscape.

ThreatMark Anti-Fraud Suite (AFS) observes and tests all data displayed by a browser as well as those hidden in the application code. The differences are tested automatically to see if they match known malware signatures. If there’s a match: positive detections are reported.

In a case of unknown deviations, they are sent to our Security Operation Center (SOC) for further scrutiny. Our solution also detects insecure configurations and any non-human-like behavior, which can be an early sign of financial malware trying to execute an automated transaction.

ThreatMark’s powerful engine detects various types of fraud across devices. Ranging from Account Takeover and New Account Fraud to phishing, SIM Swap, vishing and BOT, malware, RAT attacks… and many more.

Beyond detection, ThreatMark’s Threat Intelligence is built to learn from these attacks and prevent future occurrences.

As fraudsters constantly improve their toolsets and attack vectors, banks are now equipped to confidently engage in protecting their assets and reputation.

The role of the ThreatMark's SOC team

ThreatMark’s Security Operations Center (SOC) is a critical part of our approach to mitigate and reduce cyber threats. The SOC team is comprised of cybersecurity professionals who complement our technological solutions in detecting, preventing & mitigating online fraud.

The main role of ThreatMark’s SOC team is to vigilantly discover and mitigate threats that endanger our client’s security & the financial industry in general.

Keeping up with the latest trends and scammers’ modus operandi is an ongoing effort that requires constant attention and an advanced approach.

ThreatMark’s SOC team relies on two distinct sources for their work: on-page and off-page elements. On-page elements include anonymized data (such as unknown malicious code samples, phishing attempts, suspicious operations, device identifiers, and user behavioral patterns) which are collected from all ThreatMark Anti Fraud Suite (AFS) deployments. Off-page elements include various proprietary methods in scanning and probing the internet for new threats & malicious activities.

By combining these elements, our SOC team casts a wide probing net that can detect, promptly alert, and mitigate these cyber threats very fast:
