So let us begin with what are the biggest risks associated with sharing sensitive bank data, such as IBANs, online?
Stéphane Nappo: The biggest risk is that the sensitive data could fall into the wrong hands, leading to unauthorized access to your bank account, financial fraud, or identity theft. Hackers can use social engineering tactics to trick individuals into revealing their bank data, and so it’s important to stay vigilant and use secure channels when sharing such information.

What are the best practices for private consumers who need to share their bank data online?
Stéphane Nappo: When sharing bank data online, use a secure and trusted platform, avoid sharing sensitive information over public Wi-Fi networks, and be wary of any unsolicited emails or phone calls asking for your bank data. You should also use a strong and unique password for your online banking accounts and enable two-factor authentication wherever possible.

How can consumers ensure that their bank data is secure when sharing it with third parties?
Stéphane Nappo: Look for platforms that use strong encryption and data protection measures to keep your bank data safe. Make sure that the platform is compliant with relevant security standards and regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU. Finally, be sure to read the terms and conditions carefully, and don’t share your bank data with any platform that you don’t trust completely.

Is it safe to send bank data such as IBAN via email?
Stéphane Nappo: No, it’s not safe to send bank data such as IBAN via email, as emails can be intercepted and read by unauthorized third parties. Instead, use a secure messaging platform or a dedicated IBAN sharing service that uses end-to-end encryption to protect your data.

How can consumers protect their bank data from phishing attacks?
Stéphane Nappo: Be wary of any emails or messages that ask you to click on a link or download an attachment, and verify the authenticity of the sender before responding. If you’re unsure, contact your bank or the company directly to verify the request.

Are there any red flags that consumers should watch out for when sharing bank data online?
Stéphane Nappo: Watch out for any requests for excessive amounts of data or any platforms that don’t provide clear terms and conditions. Also, be wary of any requests that seem urgent or demand immediate action, as they could be a sign of a phishing attack or other fraudulent activity.

How can consumers stay informed about the latest security risks and best practices for protecting their bank data?
Stéphane Nappo: Stay up-to-date with the latest news and trends in cybersecurity, and follow reputable sources such as cybersecurity experts, industry blogs, and government websites. Also, consider taking a cybersecurity course or attending a workshop to improve your knowledge and skills.
