Is Biometric Technology The “Go To” Solution To Prevent Bank Fraud?

Introduction

Data breaches in banking have become commonplace all over the world. Most banks and financial institutions continue to rely on historical password based security systems which are increasingly susceptible to cyber breaches and no longer able to reliably secure data or to prevent bank fraud.

Continuous data breaches in the banking industry clearly demonstrates how antiquated existing identification security is, and something has to change. Due to the challenges that passwords, personal identification numbers (PINs) and physical ID cards present, the banking industry is searching for new technologies which can provide stronger data protection from hackers and they are now considering biometric solutions to solve the problem.
