Phishing: are local banks doing enough?
A previous post by J. Angelo Racoma mentions that customers of Metrobank are now the target of phishing attacks. I have always believed that the best defense against this type of attack is user awareness. Have our local banks done enough to educate their customers?
I checked the various bank websites if they made any attempt to inform users on phishing and other types of attacks. Citibank has a link. So do BPI and HSBC. Though Metrobank has a privacy page, there is no mention of phishing. Equitable, Union Bank, UCPB, PNB, and Banco de Oro have nothing at all on online security. RCBC merely explains how their bank protects information, but does nothing to educate the customer.
Looks like local banks are doing a poor job…
