NORTH CANTON, Ohio (10/10/08)--ATM manufacturer Diebold is presenting a webinar, “Surviving and Thriving Amid the Turmoil” with guest speaker TowerGroup Tuesday at 12 p.m. EDT. TowerGroup is a research and advisory services firm focused exclusively on the global financial services industry. The webinar will focus on outsourcing. According to Diebold, outsourcing enables financial institutions to:
* Keep talent focused on high-margin opportunities instead of process management; * Concentrate on core business issues such as generating profits, managing customer relationships; * Transfer the time-consuming complexities of channel management to channel experts; * Access cutting-edge technology on a continuous basis; * Mitigate risk and navigate regulations and compliance; and * Lower costs, especially as they relate to channel management, personnel and information technology support.
The webinar also will feature a real-life case study on outsourcing, and a live question and answer session. To attend the webinar, reservations are required. For more information, use the link.

Jeffco CU guards against phishing scams

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (10/10/08)--Jeffco CU, Lakewood, Colo., is guarding against phishing attacks with PhoneFactor, a security product offered by Positive Networks. “It is our responsibility to continually monitor and implement additional safeguards to protect our members’ information,” said Jeffco President/CEO Tom Theune. PhoneFactor is a phone-based authentication technology. When a user logs in with a username and password, the phone rings instantly. The user then enters a personal identification number. If the login is not validated, Jeffco is alerted. PhoneFactor works with any phone, including mobile phones. The technology integrates with any virtual private network or website and no devices or software installation are required. A hacker would need to know a user’s log-in and have physical possession of the user’s phone to gain access, according to Positive Networks. Positive Networks is a provider of hosted virtual private networks, remote access and endpoint security. Jeffco CU has $160 million in assets.
