You might be surprised by the level of sophistication and organization of today's bank thieves. Rather than holding up a branch, today's robbers use resources purchased on the dark web, the internet's underbelly, to hack accounts and drain them with fraudulent charges.
"I'm not sure the industry is staying a step ahead," says Kurt Long, the founder and CEO of data protection firm FairWarning. "It's an arms race." However, banks aren't helpless in the face of these thieves, and they are continually working to improve their systems to detect and deter fraud.
