Following the recent Project Blitzkrieg attacks (the reported series of financial fraud attacks against large U.S. banks) Nick Lewis offered several security measures that enterprises can utilize to fend off such attacks including:
  • Requiring out-of-band confirmation of financial transactions
  • Delaying suspect transactions by several days
  • Denying transactions involving certain other banks
Do you agree with his list? How should an enterprise prepare for a Project Blitzkrieg-style attack?
