Arvest Bank to lead seminar on cyber fraud

Cyber fraud is a widespread form of targeted, online fraud affecting organizations that use commercial Web-banking services. On Tuesday, June 25, representatives from Arvest Bank will present a free seminar about how nonprofit organizations, schools, public sector entities and small- to medium-sized businesses can protect themselves.

The seminar is part of the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Lunch and Learn series. It will take place from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Chamber building, located at 900 Oak St.

Perpetrators of cyber fraud attempt to transfer money from commercial bank accounts using wire transfers and automatic clearinghouse (ACH) transactions.

Lunch and Learn attendees will be informed of risk mitigation techniques the FBI recommends. They will also learn how they can reduce their organizations’ risk of cyber fraud by understanding how fraud works, protecting their computer networks, monitoring commercial bank accounts, and reporting suspicious activity.

Employees of Chamber member businesses can attend the event at no cost. Seating is limited to the first 40 participants so reservations are required. To reserve a seat, call 501-327-7788 or email Sandra@ConwayArkansas.org.
