Cyber security expert warns German banks of retail payments risks

A top cyber security researcher has warned German banks that their retail payment systems have security flaws that could allow fraudsters to steal payment card PIN codes, create fake cards or siphon funds from customer or merchant accounts. Karsten Nohl, who is credited with revealing major security threats in mobile phones, automobiles, security cards and thumb-sized USB drives, told Reuters he has found critical weaknesses in software that runs retail point-of-sale terminals in Germany.Nohl outlined two types of attacks. One to steal personal identification numbers (PIN) or spoof transactions when customers pay at checkout tills and a second method that tricks payment processors that act as intermediaries between banks and merchants to transfer funds into other, fraudulent accounts.Nohl and fellow researchers Fabian Braeunlein and Philipp Maier at Security Research Labs in Berlin disclosed their findings to banks, card issuers, device makers and industry associations in recent weeks. SRLabs acts as a security consultant to Fortune 500 firms, including several big banks.In 2012, SRLabs uncovered defects in the most popular retail payment terminal in Germany, the Artema Hybrid from U.S.-based VeriFone Systems. The latest findings go further to show that virtually all terminals in Germany are liable to having payments hijacked […]

Cyber insurance business booming alongside hacks, but are the risks covered?

Cyber insurance business booming alongside hacks, but are the risks covered?

When an insurance company sells protection against a house fire or car accident, it leans on decades of data from past experience to price policies. For every 1,000 houses you insure you have a rough idea how many will burn. That basic yet key ingredient is all but missing in the growing business of cyber insurance, in which business is booming as the list of hacking incidents from Target to Ashley Madison grows. Add to the mix the ever-changing nature of hacks and different levels of security sophistication among companies, and the challenges mount alongside the opportunities. “There are many unknowns,” said Nick Galletto, cyber risk services leader for the Americas at Deloitte. Hacks such as the one that hit adultery website Ashley Madison can give an idea of the cost of the fallout of such an event. But that doesn’t come close to providing the depth of data insurers use to create and measure the underwriting standards when they sell protection against house fires, break-ins and car accidents. Paul Schiavone, regional head of financial lines in North America at the corporate and specialty division of Allianz Group, said the global insurer is writing cyber insurance policies and is excited […]

Cyber leads risks for insurers in North America, Bermuda

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Cyber risk is the top risk faced by insurers in North America and Bermuda, according to a survey released Wednesday by London-based think tank Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation. The survey, “Insurance Banana Skins: The CSFI Survey of Risks Facing Insurers,” found that among all global insurers surveyed, regulation ranked first among risks, followed by the macroeconomy and interest rates, with cyber ranking fourth. But for North America and Bermuda insurers, cyber risks, regulation and interest rates topped the list. Cyber is a new risk, having not appeared on the center’s previous “Insurance Banana Skins” survey published in 2013. “The most striking new theme to emerge from this survey is the high level of anxiety about cyber risk, specifically software failure and data security breaches,” said the report. “The chief concern is the security of the ever-growing volumes of data that insurers hold in cloud-based storage systems,” said the report. “For many, major breaches are inevitable; the question is how much damage they will cause.” “Cyber risk is the No. 1 banana skin for participants from nonlife businesses, as well as being high up the list for reinsurers and life insurers,” PricewaterhouseCoopers L.L.P., which sponsored the report, wrote […]
