Fraud Prevention Center

Fraud Prevention on computer

Digital technology gives us tremendous power over our finances. We can access account information, pay bills, transfer funds, make purchases and more, at any time, from anywhere. But this speed and convenience is not without risk. Cyber-criminals are using increasingly sophisticated methods to steal valuable personal and financial information from individuals and businesses.

While online security breaches affecting big companies such as Target, Sony, Home Depot, and Anthem have made headlines, government officials stress that anyone is a potential target–from a person with an email account and a credit card to a large business with accounts receivable and payable.

City National Bank has a longstanding commitment to online safety. Browse our Fraud Prevention Center for information, tips, and resources to help individuals and businesses stay safe and secure online.
