Ken Citarella, Managing Director of Guidepost Solutions’investigations and cyber forensics practice, was recently featured in a Credit Union Times article. The article discussed a ruling by a federal appeals court in Maine that held a bank liable for nearly $590,000 stolen from a client’s account by a cyber-criminal because, according to the court, the bank could have done more to prevent the crime. Until this ruling, banks were under the impression that if they provided a generally accepted level of security then they would not be liable for a breach. Ken Citarella said, “’The decision creates a dilemma for financial institutions. The court said a generic, one size fits all solution is not sufficient, but who said what is sufficient?’Citarella suggested that one consequence of the ruling may be raised security demands for clients at financial institutions. “If this decision stands, every transaction may have to involve more inconvenience.”
