    ATO Fraud is an attack where cybercriminals steal login credentials to online accounts or buy a list of stolen credentials. After gaining credentials, cybercriminals can deploy bots to access different websites to log in on different websites, including retail, ecommerce, travel, social media, finance, etc.

    Eventually, the attackers successfully create a list of verified and working credentials that they can use to abuse the accounts or sell those credentials, causing identity theft. Here we will discuss how ATO fraud works and how you can protect against it.

    Different ways of working on the ATO fraud

    Users don't change their passwords frequently, and a common practice is using the same password on different sites because it is easier to remember. Cybercriminals can easily access those passwords, and your account will stay venerable for as long as you don't change a password. Here are some different ways Account Takeover fraud works.

      Strong Customer Authentication is a requirement of the revised PSD2 mandate in Europe, which increases security for electronic payments. Payment Services Directive 2 focuses on customer protection by providing safer payment services across European borders since 2019.

      Along with secure payments, it also minimizes the fraud risk with electronic payments through authentication. Here we will discuss its working, benefits, and other technicalities.

      How does Strong Customer Authentication work?

      SCA uses MFA authentications to secure all electronic payments. There are 3 main authentication criteria:

      • Something only that person knows (Pin code or password)
      • Something only that person has (their specific device)
      • Something that can identify that person (biometrics like a fingerprint)

            With the increasing number of digital threats, it has become necessary for search engines to determine the difference between legit websites and those that are not legit. The websites that are not legit can contain viruses and malware, but it is not efficient that search engines to list all the websites that are found to have issues. It is where domain blacklisting comes in, and here, we will discuss everything you need to know about it.

            What are Domain Blacklists, and how do they work?

            A domain blacklist is a real-time database used by search engines to identify websites with malicious content. These websites are identified by their ISPs, and they are used as references to check if an email incoming from them is trustable or not using the email servers.

            As a domain is found unsafe, it is moved to spam, and domain blacklisting is the same for websites over the internet. The main way of working is to find a trace of negative behavior; as soon as something negative is found, that domain is blacklisted.

                  The trend of cyberattacks has grown a lot in the past few years, and with the increasing need for online systems, it may increase even more in coming years. So, every company must secure its systems against such attacks, and penetration testing is an effective option.

                  Penetration testing (Pen-testing) tests your system by emulating cyber-attacks on the system, network and applications. Thus, you can see the vulnerabilities of your system. It can be automated or manual, but in either case, it shows the vulnerabilities of your IT infrastructure.

                  Why is Penetration Testing Important in Cyber Security?

                  With cyberattacks becoming more frequent, a cost-effective solution is required, and penetration testing makes a great option. Here are some reasons why it is important today..

                    API stands for Application Programming Interface. It helps in connecting two or more systems at the same time. Companies use this kind of software to connect buyers to sellers.

                    There are going to be different types of API data. One will be non-sensitive, so there would be no need to secure it. Some companies share sensitive data daily, like a TLS company that requires to secure their API. Without securing their API, anyone can hack their data.

                    Hacking API doesn't sound safe; therefore, it is vital for companies that use API interfaces for sharing data daily they should take some precautionary measures. In further detail, we will be discussing the reasons for securing your API and how you can secure your API.

                      The zero-trust policy is a data sharing model that follows the "Do not trust" policy. According to this method, devices, users, and applications within or outside a particular network set by a company's security professional are not deemed trustworthy. Compared to the castle and moat model, the zero-trust policy is more efficient and protects the valuable asset of a company.
