Entersekt poll: Customer trust likely to be shaken by bank security breaches

According to a new Entersekt poll, 85% of US adults with banking accounts are at least somewhat concerned about online banking fraud. Such fraud can include phishing, malware, man-in-the-browser and brute-force attacks. While concern is worth noting, it is action that impacts the ultimate health of a financial institution. Seventy-one percent of US adults would be at least somewhat likely to switch to a different bank if they became a victim of online banking fraud at their current bank. This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Entersekt, from 14 to 16 May 2013, among 2 052 US adults, aged 18 and older.
