The bank invited various groups to attend a lecture about cyber security.

Terry Kuxhaus of SBS CyberSecurity was the speaker.

He touched on the various ways in which “bad actors” or “hackers” are scamming people out of their personal information and money.

Nebraskaland National Bank’s Chief Operating Officer said they are continuously training their employees on the matter.

“We also do training once a month. Plus, at least quarterly we subscribe to a service that sends out fake emails to our employees. They look pretty darn good,” said Schroll.

“We’re basically testing to see if anyone is going to click on those links. It only takes one click. It only takes opening one attachment that’s infected and your entire system can be effected. That’s why 100% is our goal every time.”

Schroll said the scammers have learned various ways to obtain people’s information.

“There’s so many different ways that a bad actor can find access to your system. A link, an attachment, a virus, ransomware. They’re all over so we have to continually talk about this topic,” said Schroll.

Kuxhaus said scamming has gotten so common, people can even download apps on their phones to make it appear as if somebody is calling from a different number.

According to Kuxhaus, in 2019 the cyber attacking criminals made $76 Billion which is as much as the illegal drug trade in the United States.
