BEDFORD, Mass. — Credit unions cannot afford to be optimistic in hopes that a phishing attack does not occur, according to Amir Orad, vice president of marketing, Consumer Solutions Division at digital security expert RSA. Orad’s comments came following a report that phishing attacks on credit unions rose in September while those on banks decreased.

Nearly 50% of the brands targeted for phishing attacks in September were credit unions, a 6% spike since last month, according to the new RSA Monthly Online Fraud Intelligence Report. Meanwhile, attacks on nationwide and regional banks showed a slight decrease to 17% and 35% respectively.
