Account Takeover Fraud


S2E4 – Account Takeover Fraud – is an exciting discussion with Will LaSala, the Director of Security Solutions, Security Evangelist, at OneSpan. Will offers his expertise to examine account takeover fraud, what it is, how it works, and how to avoid it.

Recent news reports indicate that 15 Billion consumer credentials were found for sale on the dark web. And about 25% of the leaked credentials include account information related to banking and other financial services – making it extremely easy for hackers to conduct account takeover attacks on consumers’ financial accounts. Coupled with the current remote work conditions, consumers are prime targets for financial-related cyber-attacks in the coming weeks. 

Our guest, Will LaSala is the Director of Security Solutions at OneSpan. He joined the company in 2001 and brings over 25 years of software and cybersecurity experience. Since joining OneSpan, Will has been involved in all aspects of product implementation and market direction within financial institutions.
