Study says credit unions in hackers' firing line

A leading managed security service provider (MSSP) in the financial sector announced today that it found credit unions were more likely than traditional banks to be attacked by hackers and malicious users.

Based on a survey of attacks against its 1,100 financial customers in the past year, SecureWorks found that credit unions suffered 67 percent more internet-based attacks than banks.

On average, SecureWorks blocks 767 attacks per day per credit union client. That is nearly two attacks per minute, according to the study. News - IT Security News - SC Magazine UK
