Bancamiga: reinforce the security of your data

The 2024 annual phishing report revealed that at least 183 million simulated phishing attacks sent to users are recorded daily

More than 24 million suspicious emails are reported by users globally. To avoid being a victim of fraud, Bancamiga’s Director of Physical and Logical Security, Francisco Vásquez, shares some recommendations.

And in an increasingly complex and changing digital world, it is essential to be fully informed and take the necessary measures to protect personal and financial information.

Phishing attacks, one of the most common techniques used by cybercriminals to obtain sensitive data, account for nearly 36% of all data breaches, according to the Verizon Data Breach Report. Along the same lines, an 856% increase in malicious threats via email and messaging was reported in the last 12 months.

Prevention and protection / Important recommendations

According to Vásquez, it is essential to reinforce data security and avoid being a victim of fraud. Among its recommendations are the following:

  1. When directly accessing a website, you must enter the browser and type the full address, for example,
  1. Add the addresses you frequent to your favorites and, whenever you need to access banking services, log in directly from there.
  1. Avoid clicking on suspicious links or providing sensitive information via email or text messages.
  1. Verify the email address you receive from official pages.
  1. When downloading an application, do so from the store on your mobile device. Make sure it is the legitimate and up-to-date version.
  1. Set up biometric access in the app to add an extra layer of security.
  1. If you are a Bancamiga customer, keep your virtual lock closed when you don’t need it. If you are not making online purchases or other transactions, be sure to lock your lock. This will prevent possible unauthorized access to your personal and financial information.

These recommendations are essential to strengthen the security of your data and prevent fraud. Remember that being informed and taking preventive measures is key to keeping your data protected, concludes the spokesperson for the banking institution.
