Corporate account takeover is the business equivalent of personal identity theft. Hackers, backed by professional criminal organizations, are targeting small and medium businesses to obtain access to online banking service credentials or gain remote control of their computers. Using these sophisticated techniques to take over your accounts, hackers will then attempt to gather personal information about your business or try to transfer money from the compromised bank accounts, funneling the funds through "mules" that quickly redirect the money overseas into hackers' accounts.
As a business owner, you should consider proactive steps to avoid, or at least minimize, most threats.
