Of all the tests credit unions have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, the continued threat of phishing has proven to be an insidious and evolving challenge. Fraudsters have leveraged the pandemic environment in many ways in order to target credit union systems and staff.

Unfortunately for those attackers, credit unions have a wealth of knowledge, training, and tools that they can use to deter phishing and stay ahead of fraud trends.

This episode of the CUNA News Podcast features Mieng Lim, vice president of product management at Digital Defense.

Lim outlines the latest phishing trends credit unions should know about, shares strategies for training employees to avoid threats, and explains how phishing attacks may evolve in the future.
