More than 1,000 banks will test their incident response strategies by participating in a simulated cyber-attack exercise. SWACHA’s Dennis Simmons says the drill, which is open to more participants, will help bolster defenses.
Banks are interested in testing their defenses in the wake of recent cyber-attacks, says Simmons, president and CEO of SWACHA, a regional payments association. Those attacks include account-takeover attempts linked to phishing and ACH and wire fraud, as well asdistributed-denial-of-service attacks that are sometimes waged as modes of distraction to veil fraud.
