Corporate Account Take Over

First Credit Union of Scranton
Business Account Advice

Corporate Account Take Over (CATO) is the business equivalent of personal identity theft. Hackers, backed by professional criminal organizations, are targeting small and medium businesses to obtain access to their web banking credentials or remote control of their computers. These hackers will then drain the deposit and credit lines of the compromised credit union accounts, funneling the funds through mules that quickly redirect the monies overseas into hackers’ accounts.

As a business owner, you need an understanding of how to take proactive steps and avoid, or at least minimize, most threats.
